Hello and Welcome to NON-STOP TEACHING!
Have you ever presented a powerpoint presentation? What type of controller did you use to switch from 1 slide to another?
Some of you might have used a physical remote controller and some uses the keyboard of their laptops or desktops. Well, if I were to choose between the two, I prefer to use the Physical Remote Controller since it is more convenient to use especially if we are walking from side to side. But what if we don't have that physical controller that I've mentioned? You still have 3 options:1. Use your keyboard
2. Buy a Controller from the Market
3. Use your smartphone
Yes, you read it right! You can use your SMARTPHONE as a controller for your PowerPoint Presentation. Read the tutorial below.
This is the easy tutorial on how to use a smartphone as a remote controller for powerpoint presentation (with screenshots).
Before we start this tutorial, let me ask you one question.
Are you familiar with this icon?
This is SHAREit. A software which is commonly used to transfer files from one device to another. Lots of people are now using this app because it gives a boost in data transferring speed. It is faster than the Bluetooth. Sending and Receiving files are the main features of this software but did you know that it has also a function to control your powerpoint presentation? How? Let's now start the tutorial.
1st Step: Download and Install SHAREit on your Smartphone and Laptop
You have to download and install the files to both devices.
Android - Play Store/ Download Link
IOS - App Store/ Download Link
Windows - Download Link
Mac OS - Download Link
Let's start with your smartphone. Open the app and click "Receive"
Run SHAREit on your laptop/desktop and click "Search Hotspot of Mobile".
There are lots of remote control app that you can use to control powerpoints. Some of them have lots of functions and better features such as "Laser Pointer, Marker, etc.". It's better than the SHAREit app, however, if you want a fast connection and setup, I recommend you to use SHAREit.
I hope this tutorial helps you.
