Share Your Screen with Others

Screen sharing lets other members see and hear what appears on your own screen, letting you share content outside of the virtual room, while still using ClassDo.

In Presentation mode, room members without permissions to toggle sync mode will not be able to share their screen. In Collaboration modes, however, there is no limit to the number of room members that can share their screen at the same time, no matter what role they have.

Please note that the screen share tool can only be used in Work with Others mode. 

Screen share is not supported on mobile devices, including iOS, iPadOS or Android devices. Audio sharing of other apps may also not be supported on some browsers or OSes. Check the system requirements for screen share.

 Open Tools

    Inside the virtual room, click Tools at the top.


Share Screen With or Without Audio

a) Share Screen With Screen Audio

In the Screen Share column, first check if you will need to Also share screen audio. This is left unchecked by default.

If you wish to watch videos that are not from YouTube together with other members in the room, or share an application/ webpage which has sound effects, ensure Also share screen audio is checked before switching on screen share.
Note: If you are on MacOS or Linux, sharing screen audio on other applications outside the browser is not supported i.e. you can only share the screen audio of website tabs.   

b) Share Screen Only

Sharing screen audio is not required if you only plan to share materials without audio such as websites, PDF files and word documents. If you do not need to share screen audio, simply click the slider to switch on screen share. 

Note: If you are using a MacOS device and is unable to turn on Screen Share at this point, check out how to troubleshoot the issue.


Choose the Type of Content to be Shared

Back to the tab with the ClassDo room, a pop-up with 3 options of screen share will appear.

Note: If you wish to share screen audio, make sure that the checkbox for Share audio at the bottom left corner is also ticked before sharing your screen. Due to browser or OS constraints, this checkbox may not appear for some options, which means that these options cannot be used with audio sharing.

Option 1: Your Entire Screen

This option will share your entire screen with other members in the room. This includes everything shown on the browser such as your tabs, bookmark bar and extensions. When you move to your desktop, everything on the desktop such as files and applications will also be seen.

Choose and click on the screen that you want to share, then click  Share.

Option 2: Application Window

This option will share the view of an opened application. This is useful when you want to share the operations of other applications other than the browser.

Choose and click the Application Window that you want to share and click Share.

Option 3: Chrome Tab

This option will show you all your open tabs. This will protect the your privacy by sharing only contents on a particular tab and not all the open tabs and your personal bookmark bar.

Choose and click the Tab that you want to share then click Share.


Open the Screen Share as a Tab

Hover over the screen share that you would like to open in a tab. Click Open video in a tab

The screen share will open in a tab, allowing you to see the screen share more clearly. 
if the button is greyed out, it means that you do not have the permission to open a new tab in the virtual room. You should ask the room host to open it in a new tab for you, or to provide you with the appropriate permission if you would like to open a new tab.


End the Screen Share

When you wish to end the screen share, click on Tools and click the toggle under Screen Share to switch it off.
