Although similar features are available to hosts and IT admins, yet the objectives of using the app are slightly different for both of them.
*A Host/IT admin can see the '''Participate''' screen as the first page directly.

* '''Hosts''': For interacting with audience or students:
*A participant will get "'''Join a Whiteboard session'''" as the initial screen. Here, the participant needs to enter the Host name (or scan the QR code of the respective Whiteboard session) and their own names in the given fields. Clicking '''Join''' allows the participant to access the same features as are available to hosts/IT admins.
