How do I project Quill Lessons?

Put Quill Lessons on your classroom projector and learn how to un-mirror your projector.

Updated over a week ago

After you have launched a Quill Lesson, click on the Launch Projector icon in the navigation bar at the top right of the page. This will open a new window with only the student-facing slides.

Then, you will need to turn off the mirroring of your computer screen to the projector screen so that you can simultaneously display the teacher view on your computer screen and the student-facing slides on your projector screen.

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


How can I 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

For Chromebook:

  • Click on your account photo

  • Click Settings

  • In the Device section, click Displays

  • To turn off mirroring of your screen, make sure you select Extended Desktop. Here's a Google article to help you.

For Mac:

  • Go to System Preferences

  • Go to Displays

  • Next, select the Arrangement tab

  • Uncheck Mirror Displays

Please Note: This guide should work for both SMART boards and normal projectors. If for some reason 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-facing slides, and use the other device for the teacher view.


How do I drag the student-facing slides to the projector screen?

Once you have turned off mirroring, click on the top bar of the browser with the student-facing slides and move the browser to the projector by dragging the browser off the edge of your screen and onto the projector screen. You will be able to these student-facing slides from your teacher view.
