I use the iPad so much in my work that it’s hard to think about teaching and researching without it. Initially, I was on the fence about making such a costly purchase. I just couldn’t justify buying the device if it couldn’t enhance my teaching and scholarship.
Specifically, I was looking for a way to annotate presentation slides in real time. So when I found out about Doceri, I finally felt comfortable taking the plunge.
Doceri is a dynamic app that transforms the iPad into a slide annotating, desktop mirroring, screencasting machine.
With Doceri, I have the freedom to field audience responses and incorporate them into my presentations. And I can make short videos to help my students think through complicated theories and review difficult practices.
I also like the YouTube community that’s formed around Doceri users. Educators from a variety of settings have created some inspiring videos that challenge me to become a better teacher.
*I should note that they did not solicit this endorsement from me. I just like there stuff that much.
