How I Use It
This was a great tool for distance learning. Whole classes met for a weekly overview of assignments and the introduction of instruction. Small group or one-on-one teaching occurred later in the week as needed. Instructions on muting microphones and operating cameras as well as online etiquette need to be communicated prior to beginning.
My Take
This product allows the teacher to share their screen to the whole class so that a full-class presentation can be made. It also facilitates questions by individual students. Each student can present their work to the whole class as well.
