A wide variety of presentation remotes are available for purchase from local and online electronics stores. These can be used in our classrooms to enhance your presentation by offering remote control over certain computer functions such as advancing slides in PowerPoint. The extent of the remote control available varies based on the features of the remote selected. Most of these devices are plug and play, working within a few seconds of plugging in their USB transmitter without installing any software.
The IT department does not recommend any specific presentation remote, but many faculty have expressed satisfaction with the Kensington brand presenters. Four offerings from Kensington are listed below as a starting place for your search, prices typically range from $30 to $70.
