About PC Free Presenting, BYOD, Presenting Over Network
As new teaching methods have more students “presenting” in class, many techniques are in use, to make it simpler for a teacher to turn over the technology to their students.
Projectors that support PC Free Presenting from USB give the basic capabilities. As long as a way to plug in a USB into the projector (or a cable extension from the projector), is available, students can put a presentation on a USB thumb drive and quickly plug in, and control that presentation as a slideshow, with many of today’s projectors.
Some of our reviewed projectors have just simple USB presenting, but most now have media players with support for videos, jpgs, and also documents from Microsoft Office (Powerpoint, Excel, Word) and also PDF support. Digital zoom, slide show features with transitions, optical pointing and other projector features can further enhance a student’s (or teacher’s) computer free presentation.
