We encourage remote viewers for the GoToMeeting presentation to form a group and to project the slides onto a screen since we have limited connections. The group can then use one computer microphone to ask questions. When more than one computer is used in a room, the microphone must be muted except when asking questions or use headphones with a personal microphone.
