Technical: Computer/phone help
Borrow a projector that connects to a laptop I am about to begin recording a series of lectures on Surrealism for students at King's College London and I wonder if anyone has a projector that I could borrow for cams to project PowerPoint slides from my laptop on to my wall? I could do this without any personal contact. I have been told that the software that we use to record the lectures only allows either a video of me, or a video of the slides with me speaking alongside them but not a combination of both. I'm trying to think of a creative way to make the lecture more engaging by having both, as would be the case in the classroom. I would only need to borrow it for a short while in January. I could collect without any contact. Alternatively, if someone has this set up somewhere and I could come and use it, that would be a possibility if it can be done without any contact. This is for work and university lecturers are currently on the list of key workers so I think that travelling within Cambridge for this would be permitted in the current lockdown Sat 9 Jan 2021.
