Closed Captions

You can also turn the Closed Captions on/off, select the caption language/font/size, background color, and text color.


Creating Captions Viewing Captions

When the Closed Captions are turned on, any meeting participant can take ownership and start typing the captions. If you are recording the Virtual Classroom meeting, the captions will be added to the recording.



If a Virtual Classroom session with live captions is recorded and downloaded, a .vtt caption file will be included in the download folder. 

Data Savings

If you are experiencing poor network performance, you can Disable Webcams and/or Desktop Sharing. Please note that simply minimizing webcams will not save your bandwidth. Click here to review the bandwidth needed for a Virtual Classroom meeting.



If you are the Virtual Classroom meeting moderator, you can lock parts of the meeting for the other participants. These are: Webcam, Microphone, Public chat, and Private chat.  


Advanced Settings

If your network is not allowing for normal use of the camera or screen-share function within Virtual Classroom, you have the option to force both the camera and screen-share traffic to use the TURN server.
