How to show your Smartphone during a Webinar

The online world is getting more and more mobile. But how can you integrate your mobile device into a webinar? Showing your smartphone display to the webcam is somehow clumsy. Best is to use mirroring software like Reflector or Mirroring360

How does it work?

Your computer and your smartphone need to share one wireless connection. For iOS devices you need to activate Airplay (for mirroring your Android device you should use Mirroring360.) Then your smartphone screen appears on your computer. After that you have to start (computer) screen sharing on e.g. Adobe Connect and your smartphone device can be seen by all webinar participants.

A nice idea is not only to show your smartphone screen. By opening your mobile device camera you can show virtually everything around you. Thus the smartphone screen serves as a second flexible camera.

Furthermore Reflector lets you screencast your iOS device screen and you can publish to e.g. Youtube.
Both applications offer 7 days free trial. If you decide to purchase they are around € 12 each.
