The panel feature allows you to host panelists within an Engageli classroom. This is great for guest speakers or panelists who are not sharing screens. You can host a maximum of 20 participants in a panel.
Starting a Panel
To start a panel, you simply add learners to the panel.
1. Navigate to Gallery View.
2. Move each panelist into a panel by hovering over their video feed and selecting Move to panel on the application or Add to panel on the browser. At this time, you must add each learner individually.
The panelists you have moved will appear in the primary view for all students.
3. Learners can interact with the panelists by raising their hands to ask questions or through chat.
4. If you run a poll or need to direct your learners away from the panel, you can always direct their view back to the panel.
Remove a Panelist
5. You can remove individual panelists by selecting Remove from panel in the panelist’s video feed.
End a Panel
6. To end the panel, simply select Stop Panel Mode in the application or Stop panel in the browser.
Guest speakers with screen sharing needs
If a guest speaker or panelist is planning to share their screen during the presentation, the best option would be to have them raise their hand (to join the podium), then share their screen. That way, learners can see both the speaker and the presentation.
In a recording, the panel appears as follows. When there are multiple participants in the panel, the screen would be filled with video feeds.
Please Note: Remember that if a panelist shares their screen, it will automatically become the learners’ primary view (not the video feeds on the panel).
