Table of Contents

This page explains what hosts can do in Slido’s host page. Please access the host page from Event List Page.

Please refer to “What Students Can Do in Slido” when you use Slido as a participant.

Checking Students’ Questions

In Slido, students can send questions and comments. Please select “Audience Q&A”” in the upper left corner of the screen. The questions and comments from students will be displayed in the “Live” column on the right side of the screen.

By default, the questions and comments are displayed in descending order of the number of “Likes” given to each post (“Top”: most popular), and are automatically updated. You can also sort by “Recent”: sort posts from newest to oldest. Just select the down arrow at the top right of the screen.


By hovering the cursor over each question/comment, the following buttons will appear and you can make an action to the question/comment. “★” (Star Question): Slido changes the display every time a new question/feedback is submitted, so it is easy to lose track of the question/feedback. By marking a Star to a question/comment, you can check the starred questions and comments later. Please note that the participants will not know which question/comment is starred.

By clicking on the ellipsis at the bottom right, you can see the options below:
