Streaming Live AR with Zoom
for Android Devices


Now that you’ve finished learning how to share Topic Cards and Collections with your students, it is time to get started teaching science and STEM with digital, hands-on teaching aids and interactive simulations remotely.

In this article, we’ll show you how to share the screen of your Android device to stream a live lesson using Merge EDU Apps over Zoom.

When you’re ready to start streaming, just follow these steps...

Step 1: Start a Zoom Meeting

  1. Login to Zoom to start a Meeting. If you are new to using Zoom, be sure to take a look through their video tutorials. You can even sign up for live training and webinars here.

Step 2: Share your Android device screen

A simple way to share your Android device’s screen is to be the Host of the Zoom meeting. 

You can sign into Zoom and launch the meeting from your Android device. You can also join the meeting with your device and transfer the Host permissions over from your computer to your phone or tablet by going to “Participants”, selecting the “More” option beside your device’s name, then “Make Host”. Confirm the change by tapping “Change Host”.

Once your Android device is the Host of the Zoom meeting, follow these instructions:

  1. Tap the “Share” button in the bottom bar, then select “Screen”

  2. Tap the “Share Screen” button to begin streaming

  3. You can now toggle out of the Zoom app, and open Merge EDU apps to share science simulations and digital teaching aids

  4. When you’re ready to stop sharing your screen, tap “Stop Sharing”

Note: Be sure to enable Do Not Disturb mode before proceeding to prevent any unwanted notifications popping up while sharing your screen.

Step 3: Teach a Lesson Remotely

Sharing Merge EDU with your students during a remote lesson will help make your lessons more visually exciting, help your students learn complex concepts, and keep them engaged in learning science and STEM from home!
