  • Profile

    In the classroom and collaborative spaces, the left sidebar functions are the same.

    From the top, it's your profile. You can turn your microphone and speakers on/off, and at the top left corner is broadcast function. Students will be able to hear you at the same volume level no matter where they are in the classroom when you have the broadcast mode on.


  • Chat

    The “Global” channel on the bottom left corner is available and public to everyone in your entity.

    To start one-on-one private chats, you need to add your contact to your friends list first.


  • Emojis

    With visually prominent emojis, you will never miss the opportunity to give the right feedback and engagement. Let students communicate their reactions in a simpler and faster way.


  • Lecture/ Discussion Mode

    • Lecture Mode: To have students seated and be ready for class. Manage students’ audio and screen share access to prevent unnecessary distractions.

    • Discussion Mode: To let the students walk around and interact with each other.


  • Share Screen

    UNIVERSE supports teachers to use the tools they're already comfortable with. You can share their screen, cast from a webcam, and utilize digital whiteboarding or internet browsers.
