The permission status icons and notification log are located in the header of the virtual classroom. The black and white bell icon (to the right of the keypoints icon) on the header is the notification log. To the right of that and to the left of the drop-down menu with your name and avatar you can see a group of four icons called the permission status icons:

Hovering over them reveals the permissions you currently have for the various functions of the room. There are four distinct categories: Whiteboard permissions, Chat permissions, Video permissions, Audio/Microphone permissions. These icons allow you to review the permissions you currently have for the room. Additionally, clicking on the audio/microphone permission icons allows you to control the volume of the audio you hear from the room and the microphone you use to speak in the room, respectively.

Below is a breakdown of how this looks for the different categories (icons):

Audio/microphone permission icons & controls

The audio/microphone permission icons function slightly differently from the ones above and hence the indicators are different as well. Every participant has control over his/her microphone and sound volumes (headphones) which they can adjust using the slider as shown in the screenshot below:

Due to the fact that the icons are functional, the indicators for your permissions lso look slightly different from the way they look for the other categories:
