All online sessions are automatically enabled for sharing video and audio. When each participant enters an online session, a pop-up will appear asking for permission for “wcoocms.com” to access your device’s camera and microphone. If you would like to use audio or video during your session, select “Allow” when prompted.
Once you enter the session with video and audio enabled, your video screen will appear on the left side of the shared whiteboard. The default setting is to begin with video and audio already streaming. You may wish to have a flap of paper over your device’s camera that you can remove if video is desired.
At the bottom of the video screen are four buttons:

Clicking on the expand button (the right button) will enlarge the video screen.

The screen share option allows both the tutor and the student to share either 1) their full screen, 2) an application window, or 3) a tab in a web browser. When the screen is shared, the other participant can enlarge the window by using the expand button:
When the screen share is exited, the video is automatically off but the audio remains on.
