Track Participant Attention


During your training session, you can easily tell if attendees are no longer focused on your presentation. The attention indicator shows if an attendee has:


    Minimized the training session window



    Brought another window, such as any instant messaging (IM) window, in focus on top of the training session window



You can check the following:


Overall attentiveness   


The left side of the bar graph indicates the percentage of attendees who are paying attention; the right side indicates the percentage of attendees who are not paying attention.


Individual attentiveness   


If an attendee is not paying attention, an exclamation mark appears next to the name of the attendee.


After a training session ends, you can generate reports to obtain data about individual attentiveness. A report contains this information for each attendee:


    Attention-to-attendance ratio: Attentiveness based on how long the attendee was in the training session



    Attention-to-duration ratio: Attentiveness based on the duration of the training session



Checking Participant Attention in a Training Session


During a training session, you can easily check which attendees are not paying attention.


Look for the ! icon that appears next to the name of the attendee who is not paying attention.


To check overall attentiveness, select the ! icon on the toolbar of your Participants panel.
