Media Module Tabs: this allows you to dictate which functions are available in the webinar room and where they are placed.

Alternate Public Chat Title: You are able to change the name of the chat tab (i.e. “Questions” so your participants know just to type in their questions).
Alternate Private Chat Title: As above, although we recommend not allowing attendees to private message presenters and organisers to avoid unnecessary distraction.
Chat Position: Dictate where the chat box lies. We recommend under the participant box to minimise any distraction from content unless you wish to use the marketing button.
Show Chat History: Dictate if your attendees can scroll and view previously asked questions in the char box.
OmniTweet: Allows people to ask questions via twitter using a hashtag (#) specific to the webinar (you will need to create and circulate this hashtag prior to the webinar).

Audio Notifications: These dictate whether or not you have an audio notification for Announcements (via chat options in the webinar), new chat, private messaging, presenter/organiser chat messages, entrance notices, projection starts (slideshow) and instant poll. It may be of some use to have audio notifications for Announcements, Presenter/organiser chat messages and Instant Polls on, otherwise we recommend you keep the audio notifications off to avoid distraction to the presenters.
Room Skin: Change the colour theme of your webinar.
Top Banner: Uses the same banner you used on your registration and launch pages. It allows you to dictate how you would like it placed.
