Finger PointingThere is a small but very effective feature which you may not have yet noticed… the participant pointer.
During an online meeting when you’re presenting your screen and speaking, you move your mouse cursor around to ensure your participants understand exactly what you’re referring to. However when you’re a participant and you’re talking about something on the presenter’s screen, how can you make sure everyone knows what you are referring to?
When you’re in front of a computer with a couple of colleagues sitting next to you, it’s simple – you point with your finger. When you’re in an online meeting, you use the Mikogo participant pointer.
