Mute upon entry
Turn this option ON. Turning this on with make this option on by default for meetings you create. It's useful so student don't make a lot of noise as soon as they enter the meeting.

Really Cool Settings
List of 2 items.
Turn this option on. This option gives more feeback controls to you and the students, providing a bit more interactivity than you normally would.
Turn this option ON. This very cool feature allows you to dynamiclly seperate students into groups. (I recommend you set this up while the meeting is in session so it knows what participants you want to put into seperate rooms.) You will be able to move your students around to differernt rooms if needed You'll also be able to drop into different rooms when you want to hear or see what has been talked about.
Per Meeting Settings.
We also recommend this every time you Schedule a new Meeting. When you get to the section about Time, go further down until you see the option "Recurring meeting."
Check the box for Recurring meeting.
For Reacurrence you can specify frequency from a drop down menu.
Select No Fixed Time.
The No Fixed Time setting will remove any time information from the meeting. This will allow you to easily resume the meeting over and over without needing to change the time. Additionly you won't have to deal with multiple versions of the same meeting populating your upcoming meeting list. Simply start the appropriate meeting when it's time and end it when needs to end.
(When you end a meeting don't forget to end it for all participants.)
