Watch as author Karen Hyder demonstrates how to use WebEx Training Center to hold effective online meetings with audio, video, and screen sharing capabilities. This course covers how to set up, host, and manage sessions using built-in collaboration tools; how to engage presenters with chat and polling; how to share presentation duties with other participants; and how to use the WebEx recording features to make content available to others at a later date.
Note: Those using Meeting Center will also be able to use this course.
So, we are in the middle of teaching Absolute Referencing, which is something the trainer might be guiding the participants through by Application Sharing the Excel interface. So I would teach the participants to use Absolute Referencing, then complete the task. But at this point I'd like to turn over controls to a participant to see whether or not they understood what was done there and to make sure that they are actually able to do it themselves.
So I am going to call on a volunteer. Participants, if you're ready to participate at this point, please show hand raise. Can you open your Participant panel on the right side of your screen and show hand raise if you're willing to participate? Greg, terrific. Thanks, I see your hand there. So I am going to click on the Assign menu at the top of my screen, I'll use Pass Keyboard and Mouse Control, and then I'll click on Greg's name in the list. Now Greg has control over my machine.
So Greg, if you would, please click in the cell E5 and edit the formula there to use the Absolute Referencing function to absolutely reference cell E2. So as Greg is moving his mouse, I am not in control of what's happening on the screen. I can always take back controls if I need to make a change or help him, but eventually I want to take away controls. Good, now Greg press Enter and then copy that formula down to the following cells.
Perfect. And now double check your work by clicking on cell E9 and notice that cell E2 is still absolutely referenced with the dollar signs showing in the middle of the Cell Reference. So once Greg is finished with his assignment I will go back to the menu at the top of the screen. I'll choose Assign > Pass Keyboard and Mouse Control and then uncheck Greg's name from the list.
I could use a similar function if I just wanted Greg to annotate. I could turn over controls by using Allow to Annotate and when I click on Greg's name, he now has control over a pen. So I might say, Greg what was the cell that you wanted to absolutely reference in this formula? Could you circle it with the marker? And now as Greg moves the marker on the screen, he is drawing over and on top of My Shared version of Excel.
This type of interaction can be a very useful way to engage learners and to be sure they're actually following along with what you're teaching. But, because we're going back and forth across the Internet, the behavior of the mouse or the operation of the keyboard might feel a bit sluggish. But, tell the participants that that's acceptable or that's understandable so that they know that they're not doing something wrong. Okay, so I am going to turn off the Allow to Annotate.
I'm unchecking Greg's name and then I will stop sharing the application.
