Another post for those that care about tech for teaching. My small setup for using my laptop and iPad while teaching (without swaping inputs), while recording locally, and streaming/recording on Teams
For those who care about such things, I did two tech posts on my blog. Perhaps they'll help someone.
1) on how to create a streaming (and/or recording) setup with 2 or more computers (1 is the streaming computer) https://blairmacintyre.me/2021/09/12/triple-pc-mac-streaming-setup/
2) on how to create a simple and effective setup for teaching live while also streaming and recording https://blairmacintyre.me/2021/09/20/live-recorded-and-streamed/
