Tips on Moderating a Session


  • Find a comfortable place with a suitable background and no distractions.
  • Before your first session visit Creating BbC Sessions.
  • Ensure your webcam and microphone is working. For best results, use headphones with a built-in microphone.

In Session

  • Be sure to join the session 10 – 15 minutes prior to the start.
  • Setup your audio and video when you first join a session. (For a better experience, leave microphones turned off until you need to speak).
  • Start Session Recording if necessary.
  • Use Collaborate Tools to engage students during the session.
  • Remember that running other applications on your computer can slow your connection to the session.
