How to moderate a meeting

Fist you have to know How to become the meeting moderator. In all cases the moderation is done via the participants list. So please open the participant list with the participant button (at the top right, in the buttons bar).
There are 2 different kinds of moderation in SeeVogh. It depends on the meeting type.

  • Moderation by list (in Broadcast, Plenary and Classroom)
  • Moderation via Menu, the only choice in Round Table
  • How to become moderator ?

    Right click on your name, in the top of the participant list.

    Then type the moderation key (declared at the creation time of the meeting) in the Dialog that shows up.

    Moderate via Menu

    A click on a participant from the list (on the right of the SeeVogh window) will select this person. A right click shows up a menu with the possibles actions. As moderator you have access to some of the following actions according to the type current meeting and the current participant’s status.

    Mute OR Unmute the microphone of the selected participant
    Kickout (ban) the selected participant
    the following actions are not avalaible in Round Table (opened meeting)
    Downgrade the selected presenter to a passive audience participant
    Promote the selected passive audience participant to a presenter
    the following actions are avalaible only Plenary or Classroom meeting type
    Deny OR Authorize the request to speak of the selected participant

    Moderate by list

    This kind of moderation is available in the Plenary, Classroom and Broadcast meeting type.

    The “digital raising hand” mechanism is attached to the Plenary and Classroom meeting type. The moderator in such meeting had a participants list splitted into 3 different areas :

  • on the top, the list of presenters (including the moderator).
  • in the middle, the list of participants that are raising the hand. Moving the cursor over each enquirer displays the duration of the wait and the typped message if there’s some.
  • on the bottom, the list of passive participants in the audience.
  • To accept a request drag the participant from the “Raised Hands” list and drop into the “Presenters” list. To deny a request, drag the participant from the “Raised Hands” list and drop into the “the Audience” list.

    In Broadcast meeting type, the middle list (Raised Hands) doesn’t exist.

    In all cases, it is possible to drag a participant from “the Audience” and drop it into the “Presenters” list to upgrade the person. Do the other way around to downgrade a presenter.

    Remarks: The H.323 or SIP participants are automatically presenters and can’t be downgraded. Moreover the telephone participants are muted (audience) by default on those 3 kind of meeting.
