Best practices
For the clearest quality presentations, especially those where you are sharing a lot of text to your audience, we recommend you use your video conferencing app's screen sharing functionality. This will automatically set your audience's screens to Speaker View and allow you to get maximized bandwidth for a smooth presentation. The following steps are specific to Google Meet but are similar to most other browser-based video conference platforms.
  1. Select the "Present now" radio button in your meeting. Then, click "A window."

  2. In the window that appears, select the "Broadcast" thumbnail. This window will show only your video feed, which includes the slides you are presenting. Then, click "Share" on the bottom right-hand side of the window to confirm your selection.
