Application Sharing

Some web conferencing systems allow facilitators to share an application.

Managing a shared screen can take practice.

In some systems your application takes the whole of your screen, so you lose your participant list, chat and other useful windows.

Here are some tips on using application share:

  • Demonstrate live software applications.

  • Pass control of an application to individual learners. As they take control of the application, their actions and explanations are seen and heard by everyone.

  • Ensure that you make demonstrations interactive - create a series of tasks for learners, so that they can practice using the application and give them a chance to use it from their desktop.

  • Make sure you are fully conversant with your application sharing tool - it does differ between systems.
