What is a Presenter

“Presenter” is one of the roles available to users, having access to almost all features within the 3D environment except for editing (which is reserved to Editors).

A Presenter can be recognized by the 💻 emoji appearing beside their name.

More practically, presenters are users invited to a 3D space or world to whom the role of “Presenter” is assigned in the interface, either when inviting them or after they are invited.

Presenter-specific functionality is automatically enabled when a user loads a 3D environment to which they are invited as Presenter.

 

There are two ways to invite users:

What can a Presenter do?

Presenters do not have access to editing, a feature reserved for Editors. Besides that, they have by default access to the following features that are normally not available to users. Click on each of the following links to go to the appropriate section of the document.

Sharing screen and camera feeds

A guide on how to share your screen can be found below:

Similar instructions apply to sharing a camera feed:

Adding content to the 3D environment

The platform supports many types of media content and embeds, from audio to webpages to video to documents. A guide on including content in the 3D environment (as 3D screens usually referred to as “mediaboards”) can be found here. 

Making announcements

Here is a link to the Announcements guide, and here’s a video!

Managing polls

A guide on polls is available here. Here’s also a brief video explaining the functionality:

Special functions in the participants menu

Presenters can perform a number of actions in the participants menu that are not available to normal users:

  • moderation actions (removing a user out of a conference call or the 3D environment altogether, muting them or requesting they unmute their microphone, etc)
  • seeing the capabilities of other users in the 3D environment (e.g. if they have a video camera available, if they can screenshare, etc.)
  • teleporting themselves and other users between 3D environments within the same world

An overview of these functionalities can be found on the Participants menu guide.

Changing the visibility of layers

It is often useful, especially if multiple presenters will use the same environment with different videos, 3D objects, etc., to have dedicated “layers” in the environment so that they can be shown and hidden at will. This allows each presenter (or a facilitator) to only show the relevant 3D items, allowing the audience to focus on the presentation as opposed to having a lot of disparate objects in the scene.

An explanation of the layers menu can be found in “Introduction to Editing > Showing/hiding objects > The layers menu

Troubleshooting login and audio/video issues

A guide covering most common issues that users (including presenters) might face can be found here.
