Step 1: Whilst in the Collaborate session, to use the hands up function, select the icon at the bottom of the screen
You will notice the icon turns pink with a red notification bubble
Step 2: Select the pink arrow tab on the bottom right-hand side of the screen
On the Attendees tab, you will be able to see yourself and any others who have triggered the hands up function. You will still be able to see students who have their hands raised if you are using breakout rooms and are in a different room from the student raising their hand.
