Attending virtual classroom training
Attending a virtual classroom session
gives you the opportunity to learn new information and participate

between attendees or they can turn off this feature. For more information,
see Chat in meetings.
At the end of a session, the host may take a poll.
Simply read the question and vote using the radio buttons.
