Down in the bottom right of this picture is the audio output and input.(Speakers which is output and microphone which is input.)

icon-computeraudio

Make sure that the speakers and microphone are the ones that are actually being used by your computer. If you are using a district issued laptop and you have used that laptop with your overhead it could have that as the default output and that would need to be changed so that it is using what you are wanting sound to come through. Same goes for microphone. Also note that if you have paired Bluetooth devices with your laptop they will be in these lists as well.

Once your audio is setup and camera click start meeting.

Once the meeting has been started down along the bottom you will have a row of icons.

icon-sharecontent

We will focus on two. Share content, the one that is a square with an arrow coming out the top and the Chat icon which looks like a comic chat bubble.

The only way anyone in the meeting can see anything from your computer you must first share it. The easiest of these methods is just simply share your screen. If you have multiple screensselect the screen you want to be seen during your meeting and work off that screen by dragging and dropping the content you wish to share.

icon-sharescreen

To be able to see Chat you must click on the chat icon down in the bottom row of icons. Once you click it chat will now appear on the right hand of your meeting screen.

icon-chat

Now you will be able to chat with the attendees of your meeting.

Once you start the meeting, a window called “Audio and Video Connection” will pop up on screen. Here is where you will setup where you want sound to come through (speakers or headphones) as well as what you will be using to input sound (microphone). Also if you have a camera device you will be able to set it up so people can see you. (This is optional)

Once in the Meeting, there are a few features to go over. First is the option to share content. When you hover your mouse over the bottom of the meeting screen you will see a list of buttons pop up. The one that is currently highlighted is the share content button. This allows you to share in real time documents videos or whatever you have up on your screen.

icon-sharecontent2

Once you click share content you will get a window similar to this

icon-sharecontentwindow

You can share your screen or monitor or you can just share an individual document or browser window.Below is the Salary Schedule, this might be content that is shared during an interview for a teaching position. When you select this out of the pop up window of shared content this is the only window that was shared with everyone else in the meeting. Once you are done sharing the document or screen you can simply click stop in the top right hand corner of the document or screen.

icon-sharemonitor

It will ask to confirm that you don’t want to share the document anymore and then just click “Stop Sharing” in the new pop up window to stop sharing that document to the meeting. If you needed to share another document, you would go back through the same process again.
