Who is Going Splashtop

How Val Verde uses Splashtop

Case Studies

Cornell University

“The advantage of this setup is that in four years I’m not stuck with a $100,000 piece of hardware. Instead, I just spin down my EC2 instance and push my image to a new piece of hardware on Amazon. It doesn’t cost me any more money and is available 24×7.”

Andre Hafner – IT Director of the College of AAP

Sidney Public School

“I’ve used Mirroring360 and it’s fantastic! ‘Connecting’ is so easy, and it’s great to not be tied down with cables.”

Donna Schluckebier, 3rd grade teacher

Sidney Public School

Before
  • School network security settings did not allow iPads to connect using AirPlay
  • Teachers could only connect by using expensive adapters connected to their iPads
  • Teachers had to stop everything to disconnect cables to use the iPad for instruction. It turned many teachers off
  • Only one iPad could connect to the project at a time and didn’t allow students to connect and share what they had on their device
After
  • Teachers can now connect iPads effortlessly using Mirroring Assist with Mirroring360 – no messy network configuration needed
  • Mirroring360 licenses are 65% cheaper than the expensive adapters that were being used
  • Using the Mirroring Assist app, the connection is very fast and very reliable- no more messing with cables
  • Up to 4 devices can connect using Mirroring360, which gives the teacher more freedom during lessons plus allows students to share their work

“Achieving seamless interaction with computers and iPads is a challenge. Splashtop Classroom and Mirroring360 break through this barrier. Mirroring360 allows individual students to mirror their Chromebook screen on the main display. Splashtop Classroom then broadcasts the teacher’s screen to all student devices –inviting students to directly interact with the lesson. Seamless. Easy-to-use. Platform Agnostic. Splashtop covers it all.”
