In Library 222, you can project your iOS device onto the screen over Skidmore’s wifi network using the Air Server app or by connecting with the Apple TV. But what if you aren’t teaching in this space and you’re hoping to project elsewhere? If neither option is available in your classroom, contact Academic Technologies. They will assist you with the appropriate solution and provide training on its use.

Connecting to the Apple TV in Library 222
Push a button on the Apple TV remote to “wake up” the Apple TV. Rather than what’s shown below, you may see a gray screen or some other type of screen with Apple TV information. This all lets you know the system is ready. If the remote isn’t available or if none of the above options display, simply go to the next step or ask for assistance.
Make sure your iOS device is connected to Skidmore’s Secure wifi. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Tap on Screen Mirroring.
Under Screen Mirroring, select LI222 to connect.
When you’re ready to stop projecting, swipe up from the bottom and select Stop Mirroring. Remember to log out and turn the projector off at the end of class.
