Canvas

There was a team of teachers helping parents create a Parent Observer account during Open House. Parents who did not set up an account will receive information soon. If parents need help, please direct them to Anna or Lisa.

TALBERT TECH TIPS

AirServer Troubleshooting

We recommend pinning AirServer to your computer taskbar.

Common AirServer Problems:
  • Finding your name is like playing Whack-A-Mole (list of names jumps around)
  • Your name is not listed


See attached Troubleshooting guide to learn how to pin to taskbar and fix these problems!

Computer Full Screen

Does your laptop screen shrink every time you dock your computer? Are you annoyed by those black bars on the sides of your laptop screen?

The fix involves multiple steps, so tell Lisa if you want her to come to your room to do it for you.
