Document cameras have been popular in classrooms since the late 80s. But does their usefulness as a classroom tool translate to online teaching and learning?
Yes, according to AVer Information Inc. USA, which has released its new M11-8M document camera, an affordable device designed to meet the needs of both online and brick-and-mortar classrooms.
Featuring UVC/UAC compliance, HDMI and plug-and-play USB power and connectivity, the M11-8M is ready to share in the classroom or through many video conferencing platforms for distance learning. With a built-in microphone, the ability to record and save lessons directly allows options to share and post content online. The vertical shape features a mechanical arm that collapses to less than 12 inches by 5 inches to maximize space in the classroom or on a teacher’s home desk. The "smart" swivel head provides 180 degree image rotation to capture objects from many angles with the document camera in place.
M11-8M features include:
- Outputs video with 1080p at 60 fps
- USB and HDMI connectivity
- Distance learning ready with UVC/UAC compliance
- Built-in annotation capability with a mouse via HDMI
- Compatible with PCs, Macs and Chromebooks
