Using an HDMI cable, I share the iPad screen, to be shown in a Zoom session run from my laptop.
Zoom can be run from the iPad itself, but the restriction to a single window/screen at a time makes that rather
clunky to control allowing students to join, and monitoring Chat contents, etc., at the same time as delivering
a lecture or tutorial class.

I learned just a couple of weeks ago that you can do this and it works *very* well. This can also be done wirelessly using AirPlay if both devices are on the same WiFi network.

On the other hand, I have frequently joined a Zoom session with the iPad as co-Host, giving a way to
both see what students are seeing, and have the ability to share the iPad’s screen directly as a
separate Zoom participant.

This is what I did in the spring after we went online. It also *seemed* to work well. See below.

(There is an issue, however, with Cloud recordings when there are 2 instances of the same login address.
 Recording onto the local computer seems to be fine, though.)

What issue are you seeing with cloud recordings in this mode? I did notice that my cloud recordings were very low resolution when done this way and were much higher resolution when I shared my iPad screen when it's connected to my Mac.

Classes start Monday and I am still working out all the technology details.
