In order to interact with a presentation, you must first log on to the event or session. The presenter will give you a unique Glisser URL to enter into your browser to access the presentation. You can use any web-connected device to interact with the presentation (phone, tablet, computer, etc.).
Simply open up a web-browser on your device (Google Chrome or Safari for example) and enter the unique Glisser URL that is displayed (it should look like glsr.live/…). Tip: there is no need to type in HTTPS.
A great way of interacting with a presentation is if the presenter has enabled slide sharing. You will always be able to see the current slide at the top of your screen. However, if you ever want to go back to view a previous slide then simply navigate to the slides panel in the menu bar. This will disconnect you from the live feed, so to re-join the presenter’s progress then select the latest slide in the slides panel.
If enabled by the presenter, the Q&A feature allows you to ask a question to the presenter. This is a very powerful tool and a great way to interact with a presentation. It also ensures that the most popular questions get voted to the top using the question thumbs up.
Select the Q&A tab on the menu bar to view the question feed and like (thumbs up) any existing questions. To ask a question click the + in the bottom right-hand corner (and yes, you can use emojis!).
If named Q&A has been enabled, your name will appear next to your questions or comments. If you would prefer to remain anonymous, please turn on the anonymous toggle.
Whether or not you can access or download the slides (and your notes) after a presentation has finished is determined by the presentation permissions set by the presenter. If the presenter is happy for their slides to be downloaded (along with your personal notes), you will be able to download them from the Download tab.
Whilst the presentation is live you can activate the ‘Send me the presentation’ toggle and you will be sent an email with the slides and your notes once the presenter ends the presentation.
Once the presentation is over this will become a button and you will be sent the slides and your notes instantly.
Whether you are able to add notes to the slides presented is determined by the presenter. If this is the case, you will be able to add your notes for your presentation on the Notes menu tab section.
If the notes tab is on, you will also be able to download your slides, so make sure you toggle the download slides toggle to receive your notes with the presentation slides.
The presenter can assign their presentation or event a Twitter hashtag. Posting to this hashtag will populate the social media feed within Glisser and is a great way to interact with the presentation going on. To see the hashtags on the social media feed, simply click on the Social menu tab, and the tweets will update every 15 minutes.
Nowadays we have people from all over the world attending an event, and a virtual or hybrid event wouldn’t be the same without accommodating such a multicultural variety. If the presenter has allowed the subtitles when creating the event, you will see the Subtitles menu tab:
Below the main view on your device, you will also find up to three related content links that the presenter as set up for your session.
These links can be for internal or external websites, as per the presenter’s choice, and as an audience member, you should simply click on them and you will be redirected to the website set up for that link.
Here you can see a list of attendees that have created profiles. You may select a profile to see each attendees information and to connect via LinkedIn. If needed, you can edit your profile and choose whether your profile is visible or not. Selecting the refresh icon will update the list of attendees if more have joined the session.
Throughout the presentation, the presenter might have chosen to add some polls, which are really exciting and a brilliant way to interact with a presentation!
On an Opinion Poll, you will be able to select one or multiple options (depending on the presentation set up) from the display answers. Simply click on the answer/s and press Submit.
Another poll you might play with is the Free text poll, where you will be able to freely reply to the question at the top of your screen and submit your answer.
And last, but definitely not least! You might be asked to select a score from Star Rating poll. In this case, you will be able to choose how many stars you’d like to award based on the question, and click on Submit to submit your answer.
