Student watching on-screen demonstrations, slides and screen recordings often need to follow the teacher’s mouse cursor while a topic is explained. This can be really tough for students if the teacher’s screen is high resolution, or the student is watching it on a mobile phone.
To make it easier for students, a very simple operating system trick can be used: make the mouse cursor bigger. You can see the difference in the before & after video below:
Windows Settings > Devices > Mouse > Related Settings: Adjust mouse & cursor size:
- Change pointer size
- Change point color
System Preferences > Accessibility > Display > Cursor : Large
