Doceri is the professional iPad interactive whiteboard and screencast recorder with tools for hand-drawn graphics and built-in remote desktop control. With Doceri, faculty can create hand-drawn lessons, presentations and graphics and share them as still images, PDFs or audio/video screencasts - or mirror anything you’ve created to Apple TV via AirPlay. In addition, with built-in remote desktop control, you can access and annotate over files resident on your Windows PC or Mac and present them to your classroom or audience when a projector is connected.
Ram Subedi, math professor at Takoma Park Silver Spring, will demonstrate this software at the Learning Technologies Committee meeting this Thursday, April 11, at 3 p.m. in HC119 on the Takoma Park Silver Spring campus. The demonstration is scheduled for the first hour of the meeting. Feel free to leave after the technology preview or join us for the entire meeting. We will also be discussing the development of a mobile strategy for Montgomery College.
