After creating your account and logging in, you will be taken to the session dashboard.

This is where you will be creating sessions. These sessions are the online teaching and learning space your students will connect to. You can create as many sessions as you need, but we suggest creating at least one session for each student group you teach. Doing so will make it easier to manage their recordings and written responses later on.
