Displaying a Laptop Screen

Below are instructions for screensharing using a Laptop on Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate, or Microsoft Team.

For any web conference software, switch to the Laptop input from the Crestron control panel in the classroom.


Option 1: Windows Camera App
The camera app will show the laptop as an input, and can be used to easily switch between the laptop display and another open item, like a PowerPoint presentation

Option 2: Directly presenting the laptop display 
Using a laptop as a video input will allow for a larger and better view, but will not easily allow for switching between the display and another application that might be used during a lecture, such as a video or PowerPoint
