Contribute Cast allows teachers and presenters to control which student’s or participant’s screens can be “cast” up to the interactive LED. “Casting” is the ability to send the screen of a student or a participant to the LED without the need for wires. Traditionally, this is done with hardware like a ChromeCast Dongle from Google, but our system has been designed especially for groups of students or users so that a teacher or presenter can quickly and easily switch whose screen is casting.
When a teacher or presenter logs into Contribute Cloud, They can access the Cast window from the notifications tab – this is opened by clicking the “Bell” icon in the upper right of the screen.
When open, it will expand and it will show the students that are currently in your session.
In order to have the students screen cast to the LED, you will need to click on this button.
If the students are remote, you can enable and disable their microphone by clicking on this button. Please note, if you click on this button and they are in the same room you may get positive feedback on your microphone. We recommend this be muted if the students are in the same room as the teacher or presenter.
When you have finished casting the student’s screen, you can click this button in the bottom right hand corner of the screen to close the cast window.
You are also able to pause the live casting of any of your students or participants by clicking on this image.
