Joining a screensharing session
- In your LibChat window, look for the invitation to join the screensharing session.
- Click the Join the screensharing session link.
- If this is your first time using LibChat screensharing, a download will begin.
- If the download doesn't begin immediately, visit https://zoom.us/support/download to get the download started.
- On iOS devices, visit the App Store and search for the Zoom app.
- On Android devices, visit Google Play and search for the Zoom app.
- You will be prompted to enter your name.
- Click Join to be taken into the meeting.
Joining via your browser
Join the meeting Audio
- By joining the meeting audio, you and the other user will be able to talk with each other over a high-quality VoIP connection.
- Though you will most likely use your computer's audio, it is also possible to join via telephone.
- You can mute and unmute your audio at any point during the session.
- If you prefer not to use audio during the session, click the red button to dismiss the audio conference options.
During the Screensharing Session
- Configuring your meeting audio (recommended)
- Sharing your screen
- This will allow you (or the other user) to share the entire screen or just individual windows.
- While sharing, both users will find on-screen annotation tools, which allow you to highlight and mark up the screen (sort of like a SMART Board!).
- During screen sharing, whether its your screen or the other user's, you can request or give up keyboard & mouse control. For example, if you are sharing your own screen, this would allow the other user to interact with it.
- Enabling webcam video (optional)
- If you would like to turn on your computer's webcam in addition to joining the meeting audio, you totally can! However, this is entirely optional.
- There are different layout options for displaying webcam video while simultaneously sharing your screen.
- Using the built-in chat box (optional)
- You may find it helpful to use the in-meeting chat feature during a screensharing session so you don't have to switch back and forth with LibChat.
How to create & save annotated screenshots
- Select Annotate to begin annotating on your shared screen. This will open the annotation tools:
- Use the available options to annotate the screen. Options include:
- Text: Add text to clarify specific portions of the screen.
- Draw: Use freehand drawing to literally draw attention to a particular spot on screen.
- Spotlight/Arrow: Turn your cursor into a spotlight or arrow to help capture the user's attention, so they look where you're pointing.
- Eraser: Erase some or all of your prior annotations.
- Color: Add a highlight splash of color to denote a particular portion of the screen.
- Undo/Redo: Step backward and forward in time to undo/redo previous changes.
- Clear: Removes all previous annotations with one click
- Save! This allows you to save all annotations on the screen as a screenshot. The screenshot will be saved to your local device. Once saved, you can share the screenshot with your patrons via the chat box.
