AirDeck is perfect for on-demand content – that’s why we love it! However, sometimes nothing can beat an in-person presentation. Here’s a simple guide on how you can combine the best of both worlds by screen sharing AirDeck on a live call.
Why Should I Screen Share?
One of the best ways to watch content is with other people. You can make comments to each other about what you’re watching, or point out things that another person may have missed. By screen sharing an AirDeck presentation on Zoom, you can make sure that everyone is on the same page, at the same time. It’s like going to the movies!
You can choose whether to let the deck play by itself with autoplay, or manually go slide-by-slide. You can pause the presentation at any time, just like a regular player, to ask for viewer input. Screen sharing a presentation is perfect for board meetings, reviewing presentations before they’re shared, and showing off premade decks.
How does it work?
Sharing your screen is simple. Here we’ll go over a few quick steps to screen share in Zoom, but there are plenty of programs out there that let you share your screen.
- In your Zoom call, make sure that you have screenshare privileges. The host automatically has access, but guests in the call may not. If you’re not hosting the call, ask your host to give you screen share privileges. Click the screen share option.
- Select the window you have AirDeck open in. Make sure you select the “Share computer sound” option at the bottom of the screen, then click the “Share” button.
- Put your presentation in full screen. Nobody likes struggling to see a tiny window! If you want to remove the control overlay from the player, click the middle of the screen once, and the controls will minimize. To pull the controls back up, click the middle of the screen again, and they’ll reappear.
That’s it! Screen sharing your AirDeck presentations is a simple and efficient way of making sure that your audience is paying rapt attention to your content. Want to share more than one presentation consecutively? Consider making a collection of all the decks that you want to show ahead of time, like our showcase page here.
