What is the Web Tour feature used for?

Web Tour allows Moderators to take Participants to a series of websites via an embedded browser window within the content window. Web Tour allows Participants to interact independently with content in the window and allows Moderators to redirect participants to any link. Web Tour is a great way of taking users through a website and then allowing them to interact on their own. For example, you can use Web Tour to take attendees to a website and then have them individually research a topic or complete a survey.

How do I use the content area modes?

The Whiteboard, Application Sharing and Web Tour share space in the Web Conferencing interface – each represents a "mode" in the content area. Although Whiteboard content, Application Sharing content and Web Tour content may all be loaded at the same time, you will be able to see the content of only one mode at a time. Only certain users can switch between modes:

· Moderators with can switch between all modes.

· Participants with Application Sharing permission can switch to Application Sharing mode and back to Whiteboard mode.

· Participants with Web Tour permission can switch to Web Tour mode and back to Whiteboard mode.

Note - Participants with Whiteboard permission (the default) but not Application Sharing or Web Tour permission cannot switch to Whiteboard mode from either of the other two modes. This safeguards against Participants switching modes during someone else's Web Tour or Application Sharing presentation. When someone switches modes, everyone in the session will follow them to the new mode.

Note - Be careful not to inadvertently switch modes on someone else who is presenting content. Everyone in the session will follow you to the new mode.

To switch modes, do one of the following:

· Click on the button in the Collaboration toolbar associated with the desired mode.

· Select the desired mode from the View menu.

· Use the keyboard shortcut associated with the desired mode:

. Whiteboard mode: Ctrl+Alt+W (Command-Option-W on Mac)

. Application Sharing mode: Ctrl+Alt+A (Command-Option-S on Mac)

. Web Tour mode: Ctrl+Alt+U (Command-Option-U on Mac)

You can easily see which mode is selected by noting which button in the Collaboration toolbar is colored. In the Collaboration toolbar below, the current mode is Whiteboard mode.

What is the Web Push and how can I use this feature?

Web Push is designed to open a website on each participant’s computer in a browser window which is not embedded into the session. This will give each participant the opportunity to bookmark or save the website address. From the Options menu, select Open URL in Browser… The Moderator has no control over the pushed URL and cannot close the Participant’s browser window.
