The last two weeks have really been a bit of a whirlwind for me, but they've also been pretty educational. I got the chance to go to Boston for Inbound, the annual marketing conference held by HubSpot, and when I returned, our international marketing team (Nikki from South Africa, Marjorie from Rotterdam) had come to Dallas in order to collectively chart our course in 2017. When it was all said and done, I had a fairly life-shattering revelation: we should really all just agree that email is a pretty bad way to communicate inside our own organizations.
We talk a lot about the wePresent's ability to connect up to 64 users together for collaborative efforts, but what does it actually mean to work with that? Moderator control allows a teacher or meeting leader to choose which devices are displayed - up to 4 at a time - from a handy web control panel, meaning you'll be able to work together with your audience, rather than just talking to them. Learning how to use the moderator control panel is easy, and only takes a few minutes to master. Let's take a look.
Whether it's meeting rooms in the business world, or classrooms in the education world, there will come a time when you need a guest to be able to easily present to an audience. Here at wePresent, we pride ourselves on how easy-to-use our product is, but with every new piece of hardware, there's a learning curve. When technology becomes part of your day-to-day life, it's easy to take for granted how it might look to new users, especially those who might only need it temporarily, or for a short time.
However, there are a multitude of ways to makes guest comfortable presenting with the wePresent hardware, be it the feature-rich WiPG-2000, or the education-focused WiPG-1600. Here's a few tips for preparing new or temporary presenters for their time with our hardware.
Technology in the classroom is growing more and more important, but with that technology has to come a change in the way classes are taught. These days, students have a wealth of information at their fingertips thanks to the internet, and whatever concept they cannot get a basic grasp of from Wikipedia, there are dozens of educational YouTube channels ready to fill them in.
wePresent has expanded the platforms it is accessible from with the launch of the MirrorOp app for Chromebook. This app provides full wireless presentation and screen mirroring functionality on all ChromeOS devices in addition to Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android, and is currently available in the Chrome Web Store. With the release of the MirrorOp for Chromebooks and other ChromeOS computers, wePresent has become the first wireless presentation gateway to support Chromebooks and other ChromeOS devices.
Being connected is what giving a presentation is all about. Connecting to your audience, connecting to your subject, and connecting to your own speaking skills, all of these (and excuse the repetition) connect in a way that delivers a great message. The content of that message is secondary, it's the connection you make that really matters. Wireless presentation aims to make that connection more visceral, and today, we'll talk about how wePresent helps you adapt to an environment where there is more diversity in connection methods.
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a great war was fought and won for the independence of the galaxy. As we look back through the lense of time, we're offered a unique look at how the Rebel Alliance leveraged teamwork and cooperation over sheer technological strength to achieve victory. But where are the roots of this achievement? How did the Rebel Alliance work together as such a cohesive military?
The philosophy of “bring your own device,” or “BYOD” for short, is rapidly becoming the standard in the office. As technology advances, and users develop personal preferences for hardware, the idea of standardizing hardware across an entire organization is beginning to fall out of favor. Buying large amounts of hardware can cause a yearly budget strain on a company, especially young startups and other organizations with a limited budget for technology.
The battle between Mac and Windows users has been raging for decades with devoted fans standing firm on which operating system is number one. The Mac loyalists champion their simplistic approach to user interface and lack of virus issues, while Windows fans justify their argument with flexibility and customization advantages at a super friendly price point.
