Google has just published a new web app on the Chrome Web Store that allows your laptop to cast to another laptop, a useful asset in the classroom.
Cast for Education allows you to turn your computer into a wireless projector for screen sharing from another device. Just install the app, give your device a name, and invite your students to cast.
Cast for Education is easy to setup. You only need to install it on a single receiving device. All other laptops can just use the native Cast option built into Chrome.
After installing, you just have to give your device a name and a home window appears.
Then, on another device, simply find the media you want to cast and then select the target device.
Then, a window will appear on the target displaying the same content as on the sender. For example, I was casting a tab with Feedly.
Unfortunately, it seems to only support laptops, not phones or tablets. Still, this could be a handy asset for some who want to make it easier to share information in your home or in the classroom.
