The Centra tools displayed on this slide are the tools you can use to interact with the participants during this session. The RAISE YOUR HAND icon is used to ask questions or make comments. Once a participant “raises their hand”, the presenter or moderator will then call on them to speak. In order to speak, you must be given a microphone. Once the microphone is granted, you can speak by holding down the control key on your keyboard. Go ahead and click this icon now. The YES/NO icons are used to answer simple yes/no or true/false questions. Please go ahead and click these icons now. Feel free to indicate APPLAUSE or LAUGHTER during the session by choosing the applicable icons. “ The CHAT icon is an important icon. It will be used to communicate with the participants as well as the presenters. Please click on it now and resize it and move to the right side of the screen to see the Centra presentation and the chat room at the same time. There are several options on how to send your Text Chat message. We will focus on selecting “ALL” in the dropdown list. “All” is an open public forum where all messages will be displayed to both participants and presenters. Please enter your location today. [Pause: wait for participants to type messages into the chat room.] “ If you experience volume issues, you can use the Centra Volume Control. We recommend setting the bar to mid point or less for optimal audio.” “ There is also a Network Connectivity Bar at the lower right hand side of your screen. Since Centra is a real-time stream over the network, it is impacted by your network connection. This bar indicates the quality of your network connection. To ensure the best experience possible, please review the listed Audio/Connectivity Tips.
You have two options today to ask questions. To ask questions live and speak via VOIP you should Press the Raise Hand icon to get the faculty’s attention. Once called up, you would hold down the Talk icon or the CTRL key and then release when done. Or you can post your question into the Text Chat at any time.
“ Thank you very much for your participation in the session today. I’d also like to thank our presenters for their time and expertise.” “ When you log out you’ll be taken to a session evaluation – please take a few minutes to fill it out. Your feedback is appreciated. Thanks again for joining us. Have a good day.”
