As a first step, the teacher will have to start a live broadcast; once that is done, you will be able to join the presentation via the displayed link. 

Alternatively, you can join by accessing the presentation module in your LMS, and joining the live session by clicking "Join". 

Once this is done, you will have to wait until the teacher starts the actual presentation; this will usually happen once a majority of the students in your class have joined the session.

The number of attendees will also be displayed in real-time, but only on the teacher's view (i.e., the main presentation screen), just below the presentation link.

As soon as the presentation starts, you will be guided through the slides as you would in a normal presentation. There are, however, two main differences: First, you will see the presentation unfolding in real time on the main screen controlled by the teacher, but also on your own device (which means you can also join remotely, if you're invited/receive the link). Second, Interactive Presentations can (and most likely, will) contain questions (open or multiple choice), which you can answer from your own device. 

Question Example (Open Question)

Questions appear as would slides and may or may not be timed. Below is the teacher's view, or what you will see on the main presentation screen in your class. 

The same question will appear on your device, without a timer, but only with the option to answer. As soon as you do, press the right pointing arrow. Also, be mindful of the timer - if it ends, you might not be able to answer the question anymore.

Once your answer is received, you will have to wait for the teacher to continue the presentation.

At first, a list of all answers given will appear on the teacher's screen, while yours will remain the same (i.e., like in the previous screenshot).

Once the teacher decides to reveal the correct answer, you will see this on your screen, below your answer, as well as on the main presentation screen, positioned above all the answers in class.

The presenter's screen:

The presentation will continue, and you will see new slides as the presenter progresses. Note that during the presentation, you will be able, in student view, to navigate to any slide that was presented before (for example, to check info relevant for a question) by using the left and right arrows on your keyboard.

Example Continued (Multiple Choice Questions)

The question presented above is an open one (i.e., your answer consists of text you write yourself). It is also possible to receive multiple choice questions. The main difference is that in this case, answers are pre-filled in a list, and you have to select the correct one(s).

Slide Availability

After the presentation ends, you may or may not be able to access the slides, depending on the settings your teacher chooses. It is also possible that you may be able to access slides before they're presented, again, depending on the presenter's settings. Make sure to ask your teacher about these aspects if you're wondering about later access to the slides.
