Instructions for using Wendt Commons rooms 311, 312, 324 room systems

ThinkHub is a visual collaboration tool designed to help you ideate, collaborate, and innovate. By consolidating all the moving pieces of a brainstorming session, ThinkHub works with the same devices, content and software that you already use, meaning almost zero setup time to initiate ThinkHub sessions, and more efficient and productive meetings with your peers.

First, install AirConnect on your device by visiting:

 

www.t1v.com/AirConnect



When ThinkHub has not been interacted with for a set amount of time, it will display this screen:
Idle Think Hub


Once you have installed AirConnect on your device, you will be prompted for your AirConnect Key or IPAddress. You can reference the top right corner of the Canvas for this information.
IPAddress and Key Code
Once you have connected to a ThinkHub device, that device will automatically appear in your list of ‘RecentConnections’ - this allows you to quickly connect to future sessions (note: you must use the IP Address for theThinkHub to remember your ‘Recent Connections’). Select the room you wish to connect to, and you’ll be prompted for the password to join.

Each piece of content available to you on the ThinkHub Canvas comes with its own set of user tools. Or, what we call the content tray. The content tray is the same for all types of content, so no matter if you’ve opened a Note, Sketch, PDF, video, or image, your tray will be consistent and hold the same user tools.To activate a content tray, tap inside the content window. You will see the content tray appear, always anchored to the bottom left corner of the content window. While the content tray is open, you can not flick or drag/drop content windows. To close the content tray, tap the collapse button on the bottom left of the window.
