AirMedia allows anyone in the room to wirelessly share the screen of their notebook, phone, or tablet to the classroom projector system. It is a feature included in the recently upgraded touchscreen panels located on the classroom podiums.
AirMedia could help a professor jump quickly between different devices during a lecture (like going between a presentation on a laptop and a demonstration on an iPad). Or a student could share his/her own laptop screen with the entire class from where they sit, without having to plug-in to wires from the classroom podium.
To use AirMedia:
- Select "AirMedia" on the touchscreen panel located on the classroom podium.
- Enter the IP Address from the screen in a browser address bar and download the client/app (Macs, too!)
- Launch the client/app and enter the code located on the upper right side of the projector screen in the classroom.
Whatever is on your desktop will show on the classroom's screen.
