  6. 6. How?<br />A Virtual BBM Leader starts off the meeting<br />Whoever would like to share something turns the “Feedback” flag on LiveMeeting to “Yellow”<br />The Leader promotes that person to a “presenter”<br />The new presenter can then share his or her desktop/program with everybody<br />Anybody can open up a mic and jump in with comments or questions at any time<br />The cycle continues with people taking turns being presenters<br />
  7. 7. Sharing on LiveMeeting<br />Use the Content menu and share a Program, all of your Desktop, or just a Selected Area (preferred approach, sharing only small area)<br />
  8. 8. Asking Questions<br />Use the LiveMeeting Q&A to ask questions at anytime (or use your mic if you have one)<br />
  9. 9. Ideas? Questions? Suggestions?<br /><br /><br />Claudio Lassala<br /><br /><br />Jonathan Birkholz “JB”<br /><br /><br />George Mauer<br /><br /><br />
