Step 1

To enter Instructor Mode, press the Instructor Mode button highlighted below.

Step 2

Choose a Source (PC, Blu-Ray, or Doc Cam).

Step 3

Choose a Destination (Preview Monitor, Instructor Display, All Displays). If you chose All Displays, you will send the source to all of the 70 inch monitors in the room. This is the most common use of Instructor Mode. 

The Preview Monitor is the monitor located on the instructor lectern while the Instructor Display is the 70 inch monitor located on the back wall of the classroom. The Instructor Display by default will mirror the Preview Monitor on the lectern so that the instructor can move around the room, but still see content on the lectern monitor.
