How to set up hybrid zoom classroom with 1 projector, 1 laptop and a second monitor


I want my project to duplicate my laptop and my second monitor to show video participants. 

The problem is my laptop (Thinkpad E14 Gen 2 Intel) only has 1 HDMI port which is already used by the projector. 

What "adaptor" or device do I need to connect my laptop and second monitor so that they can work as dual monitors? 


Some told me to get HDMI Splitter but I found out that a splitter only duplicates does not extend. 


Thank you.

please see

Using Zoom desktop client with dual monitors – Zoom Support


i think that you may have a usb 3.2 gen 1 type a and a usb 2.0 gen 1 type ports on your laptop.  there are usb to hdmi adapters available on amazon.


thanks,  eliot
