How to use a laptop instead of the podium computer to deliver a hybrid teaching session in a classroom.
This article should be used in conjunction with the guide Hybrid teaching made simple.
Please note that using a laptop screen will result in the BB Collaborate panel and the PowerPoint presenter panel (which need to be displayed side-by-side) being quite small.
Recording and sharing document cameras in BB Collaborate will not be possible with this method.
Plug the laptop into the HDMI socket on the Extron box on the podium and select ‘AUXILIARY’/’Laptop’ to display the laptop on the projected screens.
Follow the same procedure as using a podium PC. This may be found in the guide Hybrid teaching made simple.
