Doceri - A Complete IWB Solution for the iPad
I've just completed two HD quickcasts about a really impressive interactive whiteboard (IWB) solution for the iPad: Doceri.
If you are thinking about purchasing a physical interactive whiteboard, think again. By purchasing an iPad and software like Doceri, you probably could easily save your school about $1,000 or so (per classroom installation) and have an even more versatile tool than a fixed interactive whiteboard. And if the iPad travels with the teacher, then you have greater flexibility of use over a physical interactive whiteboard that is permanently mounted in one classroom location.
While these quickcast videos are not a comprehensive tutorial in how to use Doceri, they do provide a good overview of the current features of Doceri.
The good people at Doceri are actively working to add some very impressive features to their already awesome product. I don't know if I am at liberty to share those or not, but this will be a product to place on your watch list. They are actively working to leverage the unique power of Apple iOS devices to extend Doceri well beyond a mere content deliver mechanism. I am eager to see how this product, already the most powerful in its class in my opinion, evolves into a comprehensive tool that teachers will just not be able to live without.
Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with nor am I receiving any consideration of any kind from Doceri or SP Controls, Inc., for bringing this product forward. I do so only because I would have to have and use it if I were working in the school setting. I use it now every time I present to educators.

This quickcast was created in HD using ScreenFlow and includes a live, simultaneous, side-by-side screen recording of both the iPad running Doceri and the computer display controlled by Doceri running on the iPad. (I'm delighted that Google allows my YouTube account to post large HD videos! And, on that note, all media used in this recording are used without violating any copyright laws.)
