How do I project Quill Lessons?

Turn off mirroring between your computer and projector to project the student view of a Quill Lesson.

Updated over a week ago

To project a student view of the Quill Lesson after you have launched it, click the Launch Projector icon in the navigation bar in the upper right corner of the teacher view of the Quill Lesson to open a student view of the Quill Lesson in a separate window.

Then, turn off the mirroring of your computer screen to the projector screen so that you can simultaneously see the teacher view of the Quill Lesson on your computer screen and project the student view of the Quill Lesson on your projector screen.

In order to ensure that the projector screen does NOT mirror your computer screen, follow the instructions below to turn off mirroring.

For PC

  • Go to Control Panel or right-click on your desktop.

  • Choose Display Settings.

  • In the Multiple Display drop-down, select Extend Desktop to This Display.

Tip ๐Ÿ’ก

This guide should work for both SMART boards and normal projectors. If your system does not allow you to turn off mirroring, you can launch the Quill Lesson from two different devices, use one device for the student view of the Quill Lesson, and use the other device for the teacher view of the Quill Lesson.

Once you have turned off the mirroring of your computer screen to the projector screen, drag the window of the student view to the projector screen. Read below to see instructions for dragging the window of the student view to the projector screen.


How do I drag the window of the student view to the projector screen?

Once you have turned off mirroring of your computer screen to the projector screen, click and hold the top bar of the window with the student view of the Quill Lesson and move the window to the projector screen by dragging the browser off the edge of your computer screen and onto the projector screen.
