FAQ: Presenters and Moderators at Webinars

presenters at webinar

Holding a webinar turns out to be much easier in case you have got a person to help you. It is usually called a webinar “moderator”, “administrator” or “co-presenter”. Its main functions are solving technical and organizational issues at webinars.

MyOwnConference does not offer any division or separation between moderators and presenters: moderators can also start broadcasting, record it or supervise the chat. This is why you can add such helpers to your webinar using through Moderators section of the dashboard.

1. Functions available to presenters (moderators) at MyOwnConference?

Moderators are able to speak at webinars, make records, moderate chats, share screens and demonstrate keynotes, or suspend webinars.

It is worth mentioning that invited presenters have got access to webinar rooms only. The rooms belong to one account exclusively, i.e. to one person. Any other presenter does not have access to your account in any way.

2. Adding presenters to webinars

To do so, please proceed to your dashboard’s Moderators section and press Add a new moderator. After that, the moderator’s name to be displayed inside the webinar room during broadcasting shall be set. Username and password will be generated automatically, yet if you can change them if you want to. Other information that needs to be indicated is country and avatar (the picture, which is demonstrated instead of video).

3. Inviting another presenter to a room

You can invite another user via email. To do so, go to the dashboard and select Moderators. The Send button is available right beside the moderator’s name as part of the string “send an invitation to become the webinar moderator”.

Link to entering the webinar room can be sent to the moderator. For this purpose, locate the required presenter in the list and press the Copy Link button in the string “copy link to invite a moderator to your webinar”.

4. What does “Assign the record to a new moderator” in Webinar Recordings mean?

By default, webinar recording is available exclusively to the moderator who created it. If “Visible for all” is selected, it will become visible to all moderators.

5. When proceeding to webinar room, the system came up with notification like “You cannot enter several webinars using the one browser”. What shall I do?

This notification means you have entered the webinar in another tab of your web browser. To get the possibility to enter webinar room, go to the dashboard and press Force logout in Moderators section.

Force Logout

6. Deleting presenters from MyOwnConference account

To delete a moderator from your account, in the Moderators section press remove.

At webinars, moderators take care of organizational and technical matters and issues, thus allowing presenters to concentrate on their keynotes. Invite moderators to your events, and contact us via Online Support in case you have any questions or issues.
