Different Roles on eClassLive

What is the difference between meeting participant, presenter and host roles?

Host: Hosts can set up a meeting, invite guests, add content to the library, share content, and add or edit layouts in a meeting room. They can promote other participants to the role of meeting room host or presenter, or give enhanced permissions to a participant without promoting the participant. Hosts can start, stop, join, and leave audio conferences. They can also start and stop broadcasting audio into a meeting room. Hosts are able to create and manage small group breakout rooms within a meeting. They can also perform all the tasks that a presenter or participant can.

Any users joining sessions from an eClass course where they are enrolled as instructors or designers are given Host permissions by default.

Presenter: Presenters can share content already loaded into the meeting room from the library. They can share content from their computer. Shared content includes Adobe Presenter presentations (PPT or PPTX files), Flash application files (SWF files), images (JPEG files), Adobe PDF files, MP3 files, and FLV files. They can share their screen with all attendees, chat, and broadcast live audio and video. Presenters can mute audio broadcasts on their computers.

Any users joining sessions from an eClass course where they are enrolled as TAs are given Presenter permissions by default.

Participant (Registered or Guest): Participants can view the content that the presenter is sharing, hear and see the presenter’s audio and video broadcast, and use text chat. Participants can mute audio broadcasts on their computers.

Any users joining sessions from an eClass course where they are enrolled as students or auditors are given Participant permissions by default. Anyone joining a public meeting as a guest through the URL will be given Participant status.
