If you run on-site in-class lessons, you can connect your iPad to an external screen with a cable or use AirPlay to mirror the screen of your iPad in the classroom, and use the Explain Everything whiteboard similarly as a blackboard.
Note: This feature is currently available only to iOS and iPadOS users of Explain Everything. To make the most of it, you need to be running at least iOS 14 and have the latest version of the app installed on your device.
Present your whiteboard using an external display
- Head to the Home tab.
- From the Actions section, select the Whiteboard Live icon.
- Select Project to an external display.
- Connect your iPad to an external screen with a cable or mirror your iPad's screen using AirPlay.
- Once you're connected, find and select the project you'd like to present to others — you'll be taken to the Explain Everything whiteboard. You can use the search bar to look for your project. If you don't a have project or would like to create a new one, select + Create New.
Tip: By default, the external screen or Airplay device will "mirror" the screen of your iPad, so all the interface elements (toolbars and buttons) of your whiteboard will be visible on the external device. If you don't like others to have the interface elements visible — just the sheer canvas, select Switch to 2nd screen mode. Learn more about the external screen modes in Explain Everything.
Having troubles with connecting your device?
If you're having troubles with connecting your iPad to an external display with a cable, make sure that you're connected with the correct cable, check that the cable is firmly connected, and examine the cable for any potential damage.
If you're having troubles with mirroring your iPad's screen using AirPlay, make sure that both you're iPad and the AirPlay device are connected to the same Wi-Fi network, and that you're entering the correct AirPlay passcode if asked.
