Finding it hard to make virtual presentations and classes more engaging? You’re not alone.
This article provides you with a simple 5 steps tutorial to set up the Kiap Kiap! on the iPad (Google Meets) to enhance your virtual class experience!
Let’s get to it.
1. Place iPad vertically upright on a stand/holder
2. Go into Google Meets
3. Share screen
4. Open camera app & choose front camera
5. Place Kiap Kiap! and conduct lesson
Step 1. Place iPad/tablet vertically upright on a stand/holder
Place your iPad on a stand such that it stands vertically. Make sure the tilt angle of the iPad isn’t more than 30 degrees backwards to achieve the best experience!
(We 3D printed our own blue stand stand as seen in the photo!)
Step 2. Open Zoom meeting
Enter the Google Meets app using your iPad to hold a conference call.
Step 3. Share your screen & start broadcasting
Press the 3 dots and choose share screen in your Google Meets.
Select Gmail and start the broadcast for screen sharing.
P.S: This step is very important to showcase an unmirrored presentation using the Kiap Kiap! later on.
Step 4. Open camera app & choose front camera
Set your camera to the front-facing camera to prepare to use the Kiap Kiap
Step 5. Place your Kiap Kiap!
Place the Kiap Kiap! over your front camera. Tadaa! Your webcam vision is now shifted to the table and ready for the exciting and creative demonstrations you have in mind!
The Kiap Kiap's clip is designed to be malleable and adjustable to fit different computers and screens. You may refer to this post on how to adjust the Kiap Kiap to fit your device better!
Pro tip: Use a whiteboard to conduct your presentations to replicate a real-life whiteboard presentation! We made a simple DIY guide here.
Here’s just one of the many ways you can use the Kiap Kiap! to enhance your virtual classes and presentations.
