Show your doubts without interrupting the entire meeting.
The video conferencing app has become our only way to connect with other people, and hold meetings and classes during this uncertain time. In a video meeting, however, it can be very difficult to get the speaker’s attention without distracting them like you can in real life situations.
Of course, you can’t raise your hand at the camera and hope that the speaker will see your video at the right moment. Or of course you can’t raise your hand for 10 minutes, maybe even more, until the speaker decides to pay attention to your video.
It’s a cumbersome task – hope they’ll see your hand in a sea of video streams on their screens. And there isn’t even a guarantee that the speakers will have a grid view so everyone’s video is visible on their screen.
But with Webex, you can raise your hand without all the absurdities. Not your real hand, but still ✋ hand. Cisco Webex has a feature to raise virtual hands in meetings. Now, doesn’t that solve all the problems?
Raising hands in Webex meetings is as easy as possible. In an ongoing meeting, click the ‘Attendees’ icon on the meeting toolbar to open the attendees panel.
The participants panel will open on the right. Open your name, and you will see a ‘Hand’ icon. Click on it.
Your host will be notified that you’ve raised your hand. And if they haven’t admitted it, you can keep raising it until you are sure they have seen it. Click the ‘Hand’ icon again to lower your hand.
With the Raise Hands feature, all meeting attendees can signal when they have a question, or respond silently when asked a question such as “Raise your hand if you do this” without interrupting the meeting.
