[Micronet] iPad and Powerpoint presentations

Jessie Heminway, MPS
Hi Everybody,

I was wondering if anyone could help me solve a request made by one of my faculty.

She is looking for a tablet that she can hook up to a monitor to display and draw on a powerpoint presentation.

Somewhere we have a very old and slow tablet... but we also have a couple of iPads.

Can iPads be used for this?  And if so what app would you recommend?

Thanks so much!

Jessie Heminway

Greg Merritt

Possibilities might include…

o Keynote
o convert to PDF (either on computer or with iPad Keynote) and use PDF Expert to open / draw / save with drawings

Sure there must be other approaches, too!

There is currently no Powerpoint for iPad. There is Keynote, which is Apple's equivalent to Powerpoint, capable of opening/saving in Powerpoint format. You'll also need an adaptor for the iPad to be able to connect to the projector or monitor.

I found that many of the powerpoint / iPad compatible (keynote/quickoffice, etc.) products have issues when translating fonts, etc.    What i've found that works best is output of the powerpoint to a pdf from your laptop/desktop, sync to Box ( http://berkeley.box.com) and present from the iPad.  … and then of course the cable adapter that christopher mentioned.

Another possible presentation/slides tool that is purely browser-based
and part of our gApps/gConnect:

  https://support.google.com/drive/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=126127

I believe that this tool would allow for simultaneous live editing
with collaborators as well. The tablet's browser would be the
potential limiting factor in terms of usability, but I believe that
Chrome is now available for iOS so this might work OK.

There's also an app called cloudon that's runs office docs Using a virtual environment in the cloud which is also integrated with box. This looks interesting, but I wouldn't want to put any sensitive information in the presentation.

Here are the ones I have used...

QuickOffice
Presentation
Keynote
And a cloud service called CloudOn. As long as you have a internet connection you can access your files from dropbox and I believe box as well. Does native Powerpoint, Word, and Excel files.

Look at Slideshark - it's an app for iPhone or iPad.  A couple of our
faculty members used it and like it very much.  It works with
Berkeley.box as the storage.

Some suggested CloudOn - and it works with Berkeley.Box too.

Re: [Micronet] iPad and Powerpoint presentations

Greg Merritt
I think that people may be answering the question, "how can I show a .ppt on an iPad?"

The original question particularly included the desire to draw over a .ppt while presenting, as might be done with traditional transparencies and a marker.

If you want to do this in one of your own conference rooms, or don't mind transporting & connecting a $99 Apple TV, forget the cable! Presentations can be given wirelessly from iPads & iPhones to an Apple TV connected to your screen or projector. There are several installations of this around campus already, so check it out.

Re: [Micronet] iPad and Powerpoint presentations

erol
In order to make the Apple TV work, you must connect the Apple TV and iPad to the same WiFi network running the Bonjour Protocol to use AirPlay.  Unfortunately, AirBears does not support Bonjour, and you can't authenticate the Apple TV through the captive portal.  You can do it with an AdHoc network established by a device which can operate as a WiFi Hotspot, but that's another piece you must have to this setup.  

AirBears 2 may solve the authentication issue for devices like the Apple TV.  Also, I know the AirBears team is considering options to make AirPlay (or other WiFi Direct protocols) an option to use through the AirBears system, but it's not high on the list to implement at this time.

Re: [Micronet] iPad and Powerpoint presentations

Erol,

Can two Bonjour-compatible devices on the same AirBears AP (or
network) find each other if NEITHER is authenticated to the captive portal?

Ted,

My understanding is the Bonjour protocol is not enabled in the AirBears wireless network system.  Even authenticated, you won't see devices through Bonjour on AirBears.

The explanation I received was there are "policy, security, and potentially legal issues that prevent the use and support of the known functions of that protocol."

Perhaps a future protocol will be developed which can permit display mirroring through the AirBears system, but we probably will not see it soon.

Erol Is spot-on in his description of related implementation issues -- my apologies for neglecting to mention we have been using a MiFi to create an AdHoc network as he described. 

As there is serious interest in this solution at the highest level of campus, we are in process of creating a "checklist" of items/tasks required to securely implement the solution in a couple of different ways. 

We will share that when vetted and formalized; our efforts have been sidetracked recently by Windows malware.  :-(
