Live demonstration of Doceri

Information Technology Services (ITS) invites you to learn about great new software available for your classroom use.

Live demonstration of Doceri* with Dr. Chriss McDonald and Dr. Jeremy Ramsey Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 3:15 p.m. in Heim G-09.

  • Freedom to be mobile – control the desktop from anywhere in the classroom with an iPad
  • Annotation - add visual emphasis to words, sections, and illustrations in class
  • Ability to write on your screen in your own handwriting – for those times when a keyboard and mouse just aren’t the right tools to teach a concept
  • Recording – make a recording and edit it directly in Doceri*

What is Doceri?

Doceri is an exciting program that gives instructors flexible tools for both in-class presentations and for recording video that can be made available to students online. It is a fantastic tool for both in-class lectures and flipped classroom activities. The program is installed on your desktop or laptop, and can be used as an app on an iPad.

Be inspired by some great examples on the Doceri website now: http://doceri.com

Then, see a live demonstration of Doceri as it is already being used for annotation in the classroom by Lycoming professors Jeremy Ramsey and Chriss McDonald, on Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 3:15 p.m.

For those who walk away from the demo ready to give it a try, the software, iPads, and Doceri GoodPoint stylus are available for your use from ITS.

*Note – the live demonstration will focus on use of Doceri for in-class annotation, not recording. For more information, or assistance, on using the recording feature in Doceri, please contact the ITS Help Desk.

Planning to attend? Responses will be appreciated, but are not required. To RSVP, contact Julie Adams (adamsj@lycoming.edu or 570-321-4150).


Moodle Exchange

Our 7th Annual Moodle Exchange will be held on Thursday, January 23, 2014 from 11:45 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in B200 Computer Lab. Teaching Effectiveness will be co-sponsoring the event.

This year’s event will feature a Question & Answer Session. Please feel free to bring up any questions or issues that you want to discuss about Moodle. I will be adding tips on popular Moodle features and functions.

Mary Morrison will also be demonstrating how she is able to set up Turning Point to export clicker quiz data. The quiz data can then be used in an Excel Spreadsheet or Moodle Gradebook.


Curious about using iPads for instruction?

Come and use one at an informal roundtable brought to you by ITS and Snowden Library in the library classroom on Tuesday October 8, 2013 from 12:00-1:00pm. This session will feature demonstrations by Jessica Oberlin, Rachel Hickoff-Cresko, Amy Rogers and Steve Caravaggio. Learn more about ways several instructors have used the iPad in their classrooms.

You'll review a few of the apps designed to support the use of the iPad. You will be offered the chance to experiment with some of the apps as well as share with your fellow participants about ways in which you might use them in your courses.
