How do I project CAPIT on my Smart Board?

For Audio: Take the Audio Jack (see picture to the right) that you normally plug into your computer and plug it into your iPad. The sound will play through your classroom speakers.

For Visual: Take the VGA Cord (see picture to the right) that you normally plug into your computer and plug it into your iPad using a VGA Adapter. Here are links to a VGA Adapter for Newer iPads and for Older iPads. The video will play on your Smart Board.

If you have access to Apple TV the process is seamless via AirPlay.

Why am I having volume issues with CAPIT?

iPads have 2 volume settings. One controls the iPad's speaker and the other controls your headphones. The two work independently of each other. This can lead to a situation where you get good volume on the speaker but no volume once you plug in your headphones. So please remember to adjust your volume again after inserting your headphones.

If you ever connect your iPad to your smart board—and forget that it is still connected—you may wonder why you have no volume on your iPad. This is because the volume is transferring to the smart board. Be sure to disconnect the connection, and your volume will once again come through the iPad speaker or your headphones.

Please note that some students might accidentally connect to the smart board in your room or to a smart board in a nearby room via Airplay. Make sure to check the Airplay setting on their device even if you haven't personally connected to a smart board with that iPad.
