💡Hints & Tips: How to become a speaker in a role-based conference

🎦 In a role-based video conference, participants are divided into:

🗣 Speakers who can share their audio and video to all meeting participants
🔇 Attendees who cannot be seen and heard by other participants.

👉 Any attendee can become a speaker by pressing the Take Podium button. The meeting moderator immediately receives a notification and can accept or decline your request.

⚠️To change your role to an attendee→ click the Leave Podium button that will be displayed instead of the Take Podium button.
📝Q&A: When SSL certificate, e.g. Let's Encrypt, has been uploaded to TrueConf Server control panel for HTTPS configuration, it happens that when you open TrueConf Directory on your Android device, the invalid certificate error occurs. And the following message appears: "SSL certificate invalid"🤔

⚠️Reason: Binding SSL certificate is not executed. This is CA's trust chain that contains certificate issues for your domain name.

This failure can be easily resolved with a text editor👉

1️⃣ Open the certificate files
2️⃣ Create a text document
3️⃣ Copy the contents of each file into this document in the following sequence: domain name certificate intermediate certificate root certificate. If you have a certificate chain, then it's enough to copy the content from your domain name certificate or certificate chain.
4️⃣ Save the file as bindcrt.crt
5️⃣ Upload the resulting file to TrueConf Server web configurator: Web→ HTTPS→ Downloaded certificate.

TrueFacts: Virtual Classroom

🎓In this mode, designed specifically for e-learning, everything happens like in a real classroom at school or university🏫
Teacher and students see the virtual class in slightly different ways:

👩‍🏫 Teacher can see and hear every student which helps to manage class engagement and discipline📈
🧑‍💻 Students can see and hear only the teacher and thus stay focused on the lesson📚, without being distracted by classmates' feedback🗣

🔝There's also a variety of digital collaboration tools for arranging homework check, slideshows, and even exams.
📝 Virtual lessons can be recorded for future playback and sharing📖 between classmates who missed them for some reason.

📝Some facts about the history of video conferencing

🎥 People started wondering what video communication would have looked like back in the early 1920s. Their fantasies relied on already existing equipment, so most of the concepts were quite cumbersome, as you can see in the illustration from the science fiction magazine from those times🎩

In fact, the history evolved as follows:

📺 In 1982, AT&T launched an incredibly expensive💵 corporate Picturephone Meeting Service — an hour of video communication between two offices costed $2,380.

🚀Some success was achieved in 1986 when PictureTel, today’s Polycom, designed a relatively inexpensive video conferencing system, with an hour of communication priced at $100💰

📈In the early ‘90s, Tim Dorsey at Cornell University wrote a program called CU-SeeMe, which became the first desktop video meeting platform🧑‍💻

🎦 In 1995, group video conferencing was released💫
💡Hints & Tips: How to record video conferences

🎥 With TrueConf, users can seamlessly capture online meetings and save them for future viewing, following the steps below👇

1️⃣ During a video conferencing session, click ... button on the control panel at the bottom of the screen 🖥

2️⃣ Select Video recording option from the drop-down menu✔️

3️⃣ Proceed to All participants tab → choose the participant you would like to record or capture everybody at once🧑‍💻

4️⃣ To start recording, click 🎦 button

5️⃣ By default, video conference recordings are saved in .mp4 format to the Videos folder on your PC 🖥
