Change your status and use ‘reactions’

What is it?

In Collaborate, participants will be able to communicate their level of participation in the session by choosing a status or using a ‘reaction’.

What does it do?

Changing your status as a participant in Collaborate will let others know if you are available or away. Reactions are temporary icons that show up next to your name in the Attendees Panel once they have been activated. They include happy, sad, and confused (among others). They are a good way to let staff know how you are feeling at various stages in the session. There are also agree/disagree reactions that you may be encouraged to use for quick, informal polling.
