The two ways of Screen Sharing on Toucan

There are 2 ways that you can share your screen on Toucan. You can share your screen with just your group or everybody in the Space at once.

Note for MacOS users: For screen sharing to work, you will need to enable the permissions on your Mac for the browser to "screen record"

Sharing your screen with others in your group:

Step 1: Join an individual or a group.

Step 2: Click the "..." button in the center of the group.

Step 3: Click the button that looks like a little purple desktop computer.

Step 4: Select the screen, window, or tab that you'd like to share with the others in the group.


Sharing your screen with everybody at an event

Step 1: Enter "Presenter Mode". You do this by clicking the orange "Present" button. (Hint hint: I'm pointing at it!). A window will pop up asking if you would like to present to the entire space in Spotlight View or Center Stage View. For screen sharing, either one works. Click on the orange button that says 'Start Presenting' to continue.

Step 2: You'll see now that, at the bottom of your screen, there are two buttons where the orange "Present" button used to be. Click on the purple "Media" button.

Share your screen for a group game, to share a funny video, or something more serious.
