Learn the basics of setting up your first event, step by step, with our Remo Event Expert.
TO GET THE MOST OUT OF THIS TRAINING PROGRAM: We recommend that you view these videos* in order (rather than skipping around.)
*NOTE: We recently unveiled our new branding and pricing, and are in the process of updating these videos to reflect this. So, while some of the layouts and colors look different, the functionalities remain the same.
Lesson 8: Presentation Mode
We can move into Presentation Mode by clicking the icon on our lower bar here. Remo will give you the option of a 30 second delay or start now. The 30 second delay will allow your participants to be able to wrap up their conversations. Chat will not be accessible during the countdown.
In Presentation Mode, you first have the option to record your presentation.
To come on stage you turn on your microphone and your camera (if it’s not automatically done so).
The chat feature looks very similar to the same one in conversation mode, where you have general chat, table chat, and private chat.
The participants list will show your hosts, speakers, and attendees. The blue icon indicates who has permissions to come on stage.
If you’d like to have one of your attendees come on stage, you click the blue icon to give permissions. When they accept the invitation, they’ll turn on their microphone and camera. And when they’re finished asking their question or with their part of the presentation, they can turn the microphone and camera off to be removed from stage. You can remove the guest’s permissions at any time by clicking the blue icon.
One of my favorite features is the Q&A feature. Q&A will allow anyone to ask questions or give you the ability to conduct a poll. If your audience members have questions (and many of them will have the same question), the questions can be placed here so they aren’t lost in chat. Questions can be upvoted so you better understand the audience’s priorities. Once you finish answering a question, you can hit the check mark on the right, and the question will disappear. This lets you facilitate your Q&A portion a lot easier.
If you wish to show a video, you can click share video. Click share video and paste in the url. Once you hit play now, the video will auto play. Once the video has finished, click the share video button icon again and it will go away.
The share screen feature will allow you to share screens either from an application window, such as powerpoint, or you can share a browser tab. We have two views to choose from. In “focus view”, the speakers video box will move to the side while the screen share becomes the larger focus. You can toggle to “tile view” by clicking on this icon at the bottom if you wish to keep your video box and the shared screen box the same size. To end the share screen, click the green share monitor icon and the video will go back to normal size.
Another feature in Presentation Mode that we can use is the raised hands feature. If your audience has a question or if you would like to have some instant feedback you can say please raise your hand. You will see a hand icon next to the guest name in the participant tab. Click on unraise all hands to clear out the raised hands.
The whiteboard and the timer feature will be discussed in Remo 201.
When you are finished with Presentation Mode, you’re going to click present off you’re going to choose “yes I want to go back to the floor”. The system will end your recording if you are recording.
You will be returned to Conversation Mode and will be at the same table you were before.
