The following user guide is designed for teachers using Xest (formerly VuePoint-Connect), a screen sharing collaboration tool.

1. Xest menu bar

The Xest menu bar sits at the top of your desktop screen. Simply roll your mouse over the tab to reveal the menu bar.

To share the teacher desktop to the students, simply click the Teacher button. The button highlights orange and your desktop is shown on all student display screens.

To stop sharing, click the Teacher button again. The student display screen will return to their normal desktop.

The teacher remains in control of the session at all times. Students are not able to take control of the teacher desktop screen.

Students have the ability to minimise their view of the teacher’s desktop to a quarter of their screen for a Picture in Picture view to assist with following instructions from the teacher.
