As many schools have moved towards online learning in the past two years, we understand the importance of integrating technology in the classroom. We, therefore, wanted to make it easier for everyone to share their knowledge and ideas, no matter what device they’re using or where they’re learning from.
We’ve worked hard to make Montage faster and more efficient for this update, meaning you can expect even better sharing, streaming, and casting from your devices to the main display…
Without further delay, we’re pleased to introduce Montage 4.5, now with even better screen sharing for you and your students.
What does this mean? In a nutshell, you can expect a faster, more intuitive experience of Montage. This includes better streaming and a better user experience. With support for Chome, Edge, Opera, and Brave browsers, the latest update makes browser-based sharing more seamless for you and your audience.
What you can expect from the new web client:
More Context - We’ve added annotation tools to the Montage web app. This makes it easy for you and your students to add annotations while you screen share, letting you add context and focus on specific material.
Easier to Share - instead of choosing a window, tab, or fullscreen before joining a session, you now connect first and then choose after. This makes it super easy to get connected and then decide what you want to share.
More Control - Once you share a tab or window, you can see what you are sharing on the DisplayNote page - this makes it easy to know what's going on, what you are sharing and to queue up more content.
The latest update includes 12 new languages for both Montage clients and receivers, meaning more people than ever can screen share with ease.
The new update includes Estonian, Greek, Hungarian, Lithuanian, Norwegian Bokmål, Norwegian Nynorsk, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese
