We are using Screen Share with our Windows 10 computers and our new Nickel ActivPanels quite successfully.
We have an instructor that is shared with another district who uses a Macintosh computer. How does one set the Macintosh up to use Screen Share?
Also if that Macintosh using instructor wants to use Activcast, does one use the same process as for a Windows computer with the addition of downloading the ActivCast Connect Assist For Mac OS X program on the Mac computer?
Thanks for your assistance. My areas of expertise are primarily Windows and Chromebooks.
Hi John Jenn,
There is a Screen Share file that can be installed on the Mac:
This would work the same as to your Windows 10 computers.
ActivCast works differently than screenshare, so if you are wanting to mirror the Mac screen via the ActivCast app, they would need to find the ActivPanel on the network to mirror to. They’ll have an option called screen mirroring, load the ActivCast app on the ActivPanel and they can mirror to this.
I hope this helps.

Thanks. We appreciate the assistance. The Mac PC is working well using Screen Share with the instructor’s ActivPanel.
