Understand these and you’ll be well on your way to understanding Electromeet.
User – Participant, Presenter, Provider and anyone who
wants to use Electromeet as their eLearning and collaboration.
Session – any Session where participants need to be invited by
a Provider before joining. Typically sessions are part of a paid-for course or are
offered in house by an employer, employer’s supplier, or institution.
Main Contact – the Provider’s main contact, the person authorised
to acquire the Electromeet licence and holder of the Master Password.
Access Key – a small file sent to participants and presenters via
a link in an email. The Access Key provides access to a session. Presenters have
a special Access Key which provides special permissions in Electromeet. All Participants
use the same Access Key.
Participant – learner, colleague, associate or anyone who wants
to join a session for the purpose of learning or collaboration.
Presenter - guide, teacher, instructor or anyone who shares the
presentation role during a session.
Virtual Room – the secure place on the Electromeet central computer
where a one-off session or series of sessions can be hosted by a Provider.
And terms that are useful for Providers:
Provider Licence – gives the Provider permission to use a ‘virtual
room’ to hold sessions for a certain number of participants for up to 12 months.
It is like “renting” an Electromeet virtual room. For example, a 20 user licence
allows sessions for a group of up to 20 participants to be held non-simultaneously
over 12 months. Providers can operate sessions 24 hours, 7 days and give Access
keys to whoever they wish to invite.
Licence Versions – The free license lasts for 30 days. Other licences
last for 12 months.
