Teleconference sessions enable a live interactive video and audio internet-base channel for participants to communicate, collaborate, teach and learn. These participants fall into two uniquie groups - moderator(s) and guest(s).
A typical teleconference session consists of a moderator, or moderators, and a number of guest users. The key distinction here is that a user with a moderator role leads and manages the teleconferencing session; the moderator can
modify session configurations - for example: record the live session, disable audio of all guests, etc - and also present slides or supporting documents to support an instructor-led virtual engagement.
