Manage On-Camera Attendees

Manage your students during your session

Updated over a week ago

Your students can join your session in CourseNinja using their camera and mic.

Manage Students

You can click the On-Camera Attendee icon on the left side to manage your On-Camera Attendees. You can also add a student on the fly from one of your attendees during the session.

To add students during your session, click the On-Camera Attendee icon from the left menu.

Click Add On-Camera attendees tab. If you have many students you can search them by name or email address.

Once you found the student that you will be adding on-camera, hover your mouse/cursor on their name and then click Make On-Camera Attendee.

You can remove the on-camera attendee by clicking the "End" button beside the student's name.

When you click End, the student will no longer have access to the camera and mic and will stay in the session like a regular attendee.

Changing the screen layout

Change the layout of your screen to show both you and your On-Camera Attendees with different layout options to choose from. See the help article here on how to Manage Screen Layout in CourseNinja.

On-Camera Attendee options

Here are the options that your On-Camera attendees can do inside the session room.

  • Chat - Communicate with other students via text in the chat area.

  • Screen-share - Initiate screen-share. The host can maximize the screen-share stream and/or change the screen layout.

  • Mic and camera toggles - The toggles for your mic and camera appear at the bottom of your own video stream when you hover your cursor over it. You can click these toggles to disable or enable your devices.


  • Use either Chrome or Firefox on a desktop or laptop computer.

  • Check that your browser is up to date.

  • Ensure a stable internet connection. It is strongly recommended that you use a hardwired device, but if you can only connect through Wi-Fi, be sure that your signal is at 100% and be as close to your router as possible.

  • Close any app or program that you do not need to prevent them from consuming excessive bandwidth.

  • Allow your popups to run on your browser with CourseNinja. Here are guides for Chrome and for Firefox.
