Playing video or audio files on the Teacher's station

  • VLC Media Player is installed on the Teacher's Station and will play most audio/video file types.  If you are planning on playing a video file on the Teacher's Station the best file formats are MP4 (Mac Users) or AVI (PC Users).  

Presenting image slideshows 

  • If you plan on showing images as a slideshow, click a folder that contains your pictures, and then click Slide show.
  • Your pictures will begin to play full-screen as a slide show—starting with the first picture in the selected folder.
  • To stop playing the slide show, press ESC or right-click the slide show as it plays, and then click Exit.
  • Using the slide show controls: 
    Slide shows run automatically, so you don't need to use the mouse or keyboard to move from one picture to the next. However, if you want to control the slide show, you can do so at any time by right-clicking the slide show to display a menu with control options, and then clicking one or more of the slide show options. For example, you might want to make the pictures appear in a random order, go backward or forward, pause the slide show, change the speed of the slide show, or exit to stop playing the slide show.

Keynote Users (Mac)

  • If you are using Keynote on a Mac, please export your slides to PowerPoint (.ppt).  Keynote is not installed on the lectern laptop.
