Within BrightTALK Pro Webinar we provide two ways in which you are able to share your screen:
Share your screen using BrightTALK Screen Share
BrightTALK Screen Share provides an easy way for you to share your screen from your browser. In order share your screen you will need to:
- Be using a Google Chrome browser
- Have the BrightTALK Screen Share extension installed
When you are both using a Google Chrome browser and have the BrightTALK Screen Share extension installed you will be able to launch BrightTALK Screen Share.
Once you have opened your presenter screen and are in Google Chrome click on the Screen share tab and click the Add BrightTALK Screen Share button.
You will then be presented with a dialog box asking what setup you are using:
One computer multiple screens
This is the setup we recommend and is where you have more than one screen connected to your computer. This is setup we recommend as it allows you as a presenter to share one screen with your audience whilst being able to control your presenter screen with the other screen. This will ensure that you will not share your presenter screen to your audience.
To choose the correct screen to share click the “Your entire screen” option when presented with the share your screen dialog box. You will then be able to scroll up or down to select your desired screen.
One computer one screen
This setup is where you have only one screen connected to your computer. This setup is not recommended as you may end up sharing your BrightTALK presenter screen with the audience. However if this is the only setup you have available to you, you can still share your screen with good results. For this setup we recommend sharing a single application window. In order to do this click the “Application Window” option when presented with the share your screen dialog box. You will then be able to scroll up or down to select your desired application to share.
Share your screen using Join.me
In order to use Join.me screen share you must have an account with join.me and have the join.me software downloaded on your computer.
Once you have an account created launch Join.me on your desktop.
- Select “one-time” code, click the “play” button and select the screen (a second screen is recommended) you would like to share.
- Copy the one-time code and go to your BrightTALK presenter screen.
- Launch the presenter screen for your webinar and click the Screen Share tab.
Join.me screen share from Google Chrome browser
When in Google Chrome we recommend using BrightTALK Screen share to share your screen but if you wish you are still able to share your screen using join.me. To do this you can find link to add a Join.me screen share at the bottom left of the screen share panel.
Join.me screen share from non Google Chrome browser
When in a non Google Chrome Browser we recommend using join.me to share your screen. To do this click the “Add Join.me screen share” button in the middle of the screen share panel.
Click either the link or button depending on what browser you are on.
Paste the one-time code copied from Join.me into the “Add the join.me code” text box.
Type a Name for your screen share session into the “Give this screen share a name” text box.
Click the Add button.
You are now sharing your screen.
To stop sharing your screen then click “Remove screen share button” at the bottom right of the screen share panel.
Am I sharing my screen?
To identify which presenter is sharing their screen you will see the name of the presenter or screen share session at the bottom left of the screen share panel.
