For Students, they need install the GoToMeeting app in their Laptops or in Smartphone
App is available in Google Play Store and Apple App Store
NO need to create any ID for students to join in Live Meeting / Live Class
When the faculty is sharing the invitee link to students (thru WhatsApp group created), the link will open thru installed GoToMeeting app in their smartphones and they just need to type their Name or Student ID to join live
The link can be sent to Students at least half an hour before of scheduled time

Recording the live class is possible (best practice is to record from Slide 1 to the end. So that in same session, live discussion with Students can be continued)
1. Log in to start
In order to use the desktop app to host a meeting, you'll need to log in using your GoToMeeting username (email address) and password.
Note that your attendees don't need to log in to join your meeting (with the exception of password-protected meetings).
2. Set up your audio
When you first join, you'll be prompted to choose which method you'd like to use to listen to the meeting audio.
Select Computer audio to use your computer's mic and speakers.
Select Phone call to use your telephone to dial in to the audio conference.
Once you're in the session, you will see your audio controls on the Audio tab. You can switch audio modes at any time.
3.Mute & unmute
Control your audio using the Audio button at the top of your Control Panel or Grab Tab, which will glow green when you are unmuted and others can hear you. You'll see a Mic icon for Computer audio, or a Phone icon for phone call audio.
You can also switch between Computer and Phone audio if needed by opening the Audio pane in the Control Panel.
4. Manage attendees
The Attendee list displays all your meeting participants and gives you access to GoToMeeting controls. Click the Arrow icon next to any participant's name to see all options, including the following:
Mute their audio
Promote them to Presenter or Co-organizer
Allow them to take keyboard and mouse control
All that your attendees need to join the meeting is the Join URL or the 9-digit meeting ID. You can quickly see and copy these things to your clipboard in the following places:
In the Attendees pane, click Invite at the bottom right. This will open the Invite People window, where you can copy the URL or generate an email invitation.
Click the Meeting ID text at the very bottom of the Control Panel. This will open a drop-down menu with multiple options for sending info to your attendees.

You can start and stop sharing your camera using the Webcam icon in the Viewer or Control Panel. From the More icon, you can filter which webcams are displayed.

You can share your screen or even a specific application with other attendees in the meeting. Use the Screen button in the Viewer or Control Panel to quickly start and stop sharing your screen.

The Control Panel includes a Chat pane where you can exchange messages with other attendees. You'll see message notifications appear if your Control Panel is minimized to the Grab Tab.
