Presentation owners can choose to enable a feature allowing viewers to ask questions while they watch the recorded session. Owners can then review and respond to the questions.
Since this tool is used with recorded presentations, students should expect the same time delay between asking a question and getting an answer as they would for an emailed question.
We suggest using the Q & A feature of Mediasite in conjunction with the Carmen Discussions tool. You can receive questions from the Q & A function in Mediasite and answer them via the Carmen Discussion tool in order to avoid sending the same answer to individual students via email. We recommend setting clear expectations that if students have a question, they should first check to see if an answer has already been posted.
