SimpleK12 webinar - Increase Classroom Mobility & Control an IWB 020913


Published on

As the iPad makes us more and more mobile, there are still a few school and classroom tasks that require sitting in front of a computer desktop. Imagine if you no longer had to sit at your desk, but could connect to and control your computer desktop - or your Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) - from anywhere in your classroom. In this webinar, you will learn how to do just that by using your iPad and Splashtop Remote. Chris Casal will show how you can use Splashtop to operate your computer desktop and perform annotations and other IWB tasks directly from your iPad. You will also discover what sets Splashtop apart from other Virtual Network Control (VNC) apps and ensures a more stable, reliable connection.
