Setting Up the Presenter Screen

At least two devices are needed for using Visual Aids during a speech day.

  • Classroom Screen Device - a computer that is typically fixed at the front of the classroom and connected to an overhead projector or television.

  • Instructor Grading Device - a device, typically an instructor's laptop or tablet, that you will be grading presentations on.

 
  1. Follow the protocols for the room to turn on and begin projecting the Classroom Screen Device.

  2. On the Classroom Screen Device, open a web browser (preferably the Google Chrome browser) and navigate to: https://www.studentsheet.com/display.

  3. On the Instructor Grading Device, click on the Participate page on the left side of the screen.

  4. Type in the Screen ID that is displayed on the Classroom Screen Device and click "Connect."
