Hello,

I'm trying to help a teacher set up a music lesson using Teams. The teacher would like to present using two windows at once (one on the teacher and the other a closeup of the intrument). I know that you can pin multiple videos from the participants' end. But this may be cumbersome to the students (mostly kids) to do each session. Is there a way to setup the Teams meeting so the videos are automatically pinned for everyone in the meeting (like spotlight from Skype)?

Thanks for any suggestions!

Wanted to make sure this question had an answer for those asking the same thing even though it's an old one. Here's how to pin multiple people in a meeting - note, this view is for your view only: Adjust your view in a Teams meeting - Office Support (microsoft.com)

If you'd like to pin a speaker view for everyone, you can do that - this is referred to as a spotlight: Spotlight someone's video in a Teams meeting - Office Support (microsoft.com)
