Functions for participants (non-moderators and non-presentators)
In the following overview you will find a description and instructions for the functions of the IMS RealTime video conference system after you have logged in and participate as a participant or non-moderator.
1. Open the room overview
and create a room for your meeting or, if available, join an existing meeting via the (invitation) link.
2. Choose whether you want to join the meeting (initially) only as a listener or whether you want to share your microphone immediately. Alternatively, you can also release your microphone at any time during the meeting.
If you release your microphone immediately, an echo test appears.
To do this, speak something into the microphone. Do you hear yourself, click “Yes”. If you can’t hear yourself, click on “No” and choose another option for your microphone in the audio settings.
The echo test will now appear again. Do you hear yourself, click on “Yes”.
3. You now enter the meeting room with a microphone, but still without a shared webcam. If necessary, activate your webcam using the symbol at the bottom.
Select your webcam and the quality in the settings. A preview appears in the black window on the left. Then start sharing.
4. For requests to speak, especially in meetings with a large number of participants, there is the “raise your hand” symbol. With this you set your status to “raise your hand” and get noticed. Click the icon again to reset your status.
5. You can use the chat module “Public chat” at the top left to write messages that are visible to all participants.
Write your messages in the chat window at the bottom left, your messages will then appear in the bar at the top.
