AirServer allows you to receive AirPlay feeds from another Mac or iOS device and mirror to your display. This means you can use AirPlay to mirror a student device, which promotes student collaboration and sharing.

Now, how do you get started?

First, go to and download the Mac version. Double click the installation file (which should be in your downloads folder) After you click to agree to the terms, drag AirServer to your Applications folder:

When you launch AirServer for the first time, they will ask for an activation number. Go to ICT help desk and they will enter it for you.

After your activation number is set up, go to Preferences and change your Computer name and set a password. Changing your Airplay display name make it easier to find your laptop in the long list of available mirroring screens. When AirServer is running on your computer, it will be listed on any other iOS device connected to the same network. Anyone who sees your computer is able to stream to AirServer unless you enable your password settings. Devices must be on the same network, therefore personal devices not on ISB-Internal will not work. Anyone who tries to connect to AirServer would be prompted to enter the password. Without the correct password, they will not be able to stream or mirror to your computer.
