Application Sharing.

Share application for entire desktop – eg share a student’s assignment and make changes in real time – Doing Excel formulas with students

Bb Collaborate Panels will see show (Chat windows etc) …resolution not good

Easier to see just one window eg session plan

Keys to application sharing:

  1. Open the application (not minimised)….’spinning wheel of wonder’
  2. Select the method
  3. Click share

Nb. no possibility of sharing sound on application sharing so best to use ‘Web tour’ instead.

Select WebTour – Type in URL – if someone else clicks the ‘follow me’ box they now control the page and change the webpage
