AirServer by Alfred Hart and Mark Valenti

The proliferation of apps available for iOS devices such as iPads and iPhones puts a treasure trove of tools into the hands of instructors and students. Previously, sharing that information on the big screen with the entire class has been a struggle requiring being tethered via cables to the lectern.

ITS is piloting a new solution in the classroom utilizing AirServer.  AirServer will beam your iOS device wirelessly with full mirroring to the installed PC or Mac in the classroom, which is already connected to the in room projector, SMARTboard, or HDTV.  It is as simple as launching AirServer on the computer, scanning the displayed QR code with your free AirServer application, and accepting the connection on the computer and because AirServer supports multiple simultaneous connections, you can allow students to connect to share ideas and collaborate. 

Checkout all of the AirServer features on their website http://www.airserver.com/.  If interested, please email ITS_ClassroomDE@uwlax.edu so we may setup and test in your classroom.
