The Conferences Index Page allows you to view all the conferences within a course. As an instructor, you can create new conferences, start conferences, and manage concluded conferences.

Note: Creating a conference is a course permission. If you cannot create a conference, your institution has restricted this feature.

Open Conferences

Open Conferences

In Course Navigation, click the Conferences link.

View Conferences

View Conferences

Conferences are grouped in two parts: New Conferences [1] and Concluded Conferences [2]. Both always display the conference name [3] and description [4].

If a student has been invited to a conference, the student can view the conference in the Conferences page.

View In Progress Conference

View In Progress Conference

As a moderator, you can start new conferences [1]. Once the conference has started, the conference status shows as in progress [2]. Participants invited to the conference can join as long as the Join button is visible [3].

View Concluded Conferences

View Concluded Conferences

Concluded conferences display in the Concluded Conferences section. Each concluded conference shows the title, date, and description of the conference [1].

You can delete a concluded conference in the conference's Settings menu [2].

View Recorded Conference

View Recorded Conference

When your conference has concluded, click the name of the recorded conference [1]. To replay the conference, click the recording format link [2]. The recording format displays as either a presentation or a video.

The recording format link does not appear until the conference has been rendered for playback. Depending on the length of your conference, this process may take several hours. The length of the conference is indicated in hours:minutes (e.g. 0:18 is 18 minutes).

If your conference included closed captioning, the playback bar for the video displays a CC button to view the available captions.

Note: For all basic Conference accounts, recordings are automatically deleted 14 days after the conference ends.

  View Recorded Conference 

Statistics include metrics about student participation in the recorded session, such as length of time in the session [1], number of moderators and participants [2], and the number of students who spoke, messaged, used emojis, or raised their hands during the conference [3]. Metrics also include each student's response to polls [4].

To download statistics as a CSV file, click the Download CSV button [5].
