In-Session Video

Sarah Snyder -

Some of your MathElf sessions will have in-session video! These include any sessions with paying users whom you've worked with before.

Here's how video works:
Sessions start with video open in full screen. This is a great opportunity to greet your student! 
Just like turning pages, tutors have control over the video. The video can be maximized or minimized, and you can easily move back and forth between the two. 
When video is maximized, video of your student will take up the whole screen. You'll see your video in the bottom right corner. Your student's screen will be similar, but with the tutor and student videos reversed.
To minimize the video and go to the whiteboard, tap the arrows in the bottom left corner. You or the student can tap the red x in the upper left to end the session.
When you're in the whiteboard, your student's video will be in the bottom left and your video will disappear (your student can still see you!). Tap the arrows inside the small video to maximize the video again.
The student's whiteboard screen will be similar to yours with a small video of the tutor is shown in the bottom left corner. You can tap the video of the student to see yourself (what the student sees). 
Here's how to tell a session will have video:
Sessions with video will have a video icon on the claim button:
Booked sessions will also have video!
You'll also notice the the app tells you it's connecting your video, rather than your audio at the start of the session:
Just like with audio, student video begins connecting after your video has connected.
