Session showing 4 video cards and attendees in Attendee list. Attendees are grouped as moderators, presenters, and participants.


Moderators have full control over all content being shared. They can make any attendee a presenter or a moderator. Moderators see hand raise notifications and can lower hands. They can remove attendees from a session, but they cannot remove other moderators. Moderators can set the session settings, including deciding what participants can and can't do. Moderators get email with links to their session recordings.

A Moderator label appears on the moderator's video. There is also a MOD label on the moderator when you type an attendee's name to mention them in chat.

The captioner role is designed to provide an accessible learning experience for students who are deaf or hard of hearing, as well as for students whose native language is different from the moderator's. An attendee is assigned this role by a moderator. The captioner is given an area to type what is being said. Other participants can view what the captioner is typing in real time. You can have multiple captioners for multiple languages.

A CC label appears beside the captioner in the Attendees list.
