Teaching can sometimes be hard, but as the saying goes, there’s an app for that. We’ve just come across the new UWP Splashtop Classroom Assist App for Windows 10, which aims to make teaching easier.

Over 1 million teachers currently use the Splashtop Remote Desktop, Whiteboard, and other Classroom products to increase student collaboration. Now, with the Splashtop Classroom, teachers can control annotate and share a Windows 10 display with student devices such as tablets, Chromebooks, or other PC/Macs using the Chrome browser. The app allows teachers to improve student engagement, and students can view, control and annotate over lesson content directly from their mobile device. Please find the full app description below.

  • Teach from anywhere inside the classroom. Have complete control over applications such as Keynote or PowerPoint or Flash-capable browser on the classroom PC as if you were sitting right there. No need to stay at the front of the class. Be free to roam around without losing control of the class!
  • Annotate over any content. Use gestures to draw, highlight, or write over any content. Take snapshots of the screen and save them to the gallery then print or email the snapshots to students, parents or colleagues. Use different colored and sized pens, stamps, highlighter, shapes, lines, and text tools over existing content or Flipchart backgrounds.
  • Share anything from your computer instantly. Even the most demanding multi-media Windows 10 applications can be shared instantly from your iPad without any reformatting using unfamiliar authoring tools or uploading ahead of time! Have a website or YouTube FLASH video to share with the class? No problem – just start a Splashtop Classroom session and display the QR code for students to snap and instantly join! Visually or hearing impaired students can now see, hear – and interact with – the lesson content from anywhere in the class.
  • Capture student ideas easily. Pass control to a group of students and let them communicate their ideas with the rest of the class without moving from their seats. Annotate content or select an existing flipchart background and share it with the rest of the class. Take student engagement to the next level while improving classroom management!
