There are two ways to engage your students anonymously:
Way One: hide names in your session dashboard
On your session dashboard, simply click on ‘Hide names’ to anonymize all student names. Now ‘Hide names’ will become ‘Show names’. If you want to reveal their identities at a later point, simply click on the ‘Show names’.

Way Two: use a nickname
When students join your session, they are automatically asked to provide a name. Tell your students to use an alias, such as Student 01 or any other creative name that makes it hard to identify the student.
