Application Sharing

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Application Sharing allows the moderator to present to the participants either their entire desktop or any program that is running on their computer. Participants can be given control to interact with the shared application.

Avoid using Application Sharing to view videos, no audio will be availalbe and the video will stutter when playing.  If the video is hosted online in a service like Youtube or the University's MyMedia streaming server the optimal method of sharing is Web Tour.  Otherwise either upload the video file to the File Transfer Library or Preload the file ahead of time.
