Zoom and Document Cameras

A document camera allows faculty to display documents, and even write on documents for students to see. Document cameras sit on a surface and point down at a document that student can see while faculty displays, works on or annotates the document. Also, many document cameras are connected directly to a computer, which allows those learning in a remote environment to see the same thing as those in the classroom see.

You can view the instructions on which document camera work with Zoom and how to use them with Zoom below.
