You can create as many teams as you wish.
It is possible to assign a color to a team by clicking on the icon that is on the left of the teams’ name.
Once all your teams created, click on “Save”.

To remove a team, click on the red garbage can on the right of the team you want to delete. 
Attention! Setting up teams needs to refresh your page to be taken into account.

At the memento to join your session, your participants will be free to choose the team of their choice. The facilitator cannot assign teams to a specific participant.

It is not possible to change teams once one selected.

You, as your participants, will keep a visual reminder on the avatar with the color of the chosen team, in the top right corner of your screen. Either computer or mobile phone.
The name of your team is visible by clicking on your avatar. 


When teams have been set up on your session, your participants will gain points individually, but also by team thanks to the assessment activities (Ranking, MCQ, and Challenge). By answering correctly to the activities, your participants will earn points.
