> * Open the above URL, accept the privacy statement,
> * enter your name,
> * click "join" (or "start" if you’re the first),
> * click "with microphone", allow your browser to access it, check the 
> audio.
> * Your microphone is muted if you join. Activate microphone and/or 
> camera with the buttons at the bottom.
> * Minimize the default presentation with the "screen" button, bottom right.
> * If you’d like to share your screen or upload a file, you can make

> then you’ll see the "screen sharing" button beside the camera button; 
> also there’s now "manage presentations" behind the "plus" button. Beware

> * Sound is usually better if you use a headset (less noise for everyone).
> * Connection problems are mostly due to low bandwidth or high latency on

> * If audio/video doesn’t work for you, you can still use the text chat.
> * Screen sharing needs a lot of bandwidth.
> * BigBlueButton documentation applies: 
> https://bigbluebutton.org/teachers/tutorials/
> [Netiquette]
> * Please use a name that we recognize from here. Some feel uncomfortable 
> with anonymous lurkers.
> * Mute your microphone while you’re not talking.
> * It’s nice to show your face at least when you join.
> * If there are connection problems, stop camera sharing.
> * The room is set to “everyone’s a moderator“, I trust you...
> See you, Hraban
