Any ideas? Except changing network environment. As I said earlier so the iOS 8 have addressed the issue and is solving in on there apple to with iOS 8
Well I definitely wouldn't change the network environment for Chromecast
If you can get a separate WiFi for Chromecast
, then Vbukit
may be an option as the sender and receiver don't
need to be on the same nework. You will still need one
device on the same network as Chromecast so you can launch the Vbukit for Chromecast app, which will show the QR code on the screen.
But to be honest, unless you've already made a large investment in Chromecasts, I feel like it's not the best solution for this application.
Even if you did get Chromecast on the network, because it's designed for home use and there is no use authentication, any
student on the same WiFi network will be able to take control of Chromecast, leaving a huge potential for accidental or malicious interruption.
Vbukit is more controlled, but I would lean toward hooking up another Chromebook directly to the projector and have the students share screen to it via a Lync, Skype or TeamViewer "call-in." The lecturer would have to accept the "call" in this case, but it does provide accountability and avoids interruption.
