IPad for controlling IWB/Projector
I've been asked if we can get some iPads used remotely for accessing the computer which is connected to the IWB. The reasoning is that they want it to allow teachers to move through the class and still have control of the screen at the front. I have been given an iPad to get this working so rather than starting from scratch I assume someone has already done this and can point me in the right direction.
I was asked can we use slashtop software which a teacher has used on their own machine at home. I have suggested that at a very basic level they could use their laptop and link to that using their existing software if this needed to be done quickly, but I would really like to use a better solution. And as I'm the one doing the testing I dont want to purchase lots of different apps to get it to work.
I have used logmein which I know works here, but from reading reviews some of the remote apps provide more lag than others. The idea is to use 5/6 ipads in various rooms so it needs to be a solution which is fairly easy for the user to get to grips with. I had thought I could install the software on the computers required which the user would only run when accessing it for remote control. Then have a basic password for the remote software.
If anyone can provide any advice in what others have done it would be much apreciated. This isn't an urgent thing as they are trialling the ipads to see how much useage they will get, but one of the advatages they want to try is mobility in the classroom.
