  • 11:30 - Student use of Doceri in the classroom and unexpected benefits thereof
  • 13:10 - Saving and sharing annotations
    • (What follows is a bit of a "working period" during which attendees figure out and discuss saving and sharing annotated slides and how such a feature can be used in different scenarios)
  • 16:43 - Returning to previous annotations
    • (Leads to another "working session" during which the ability to return to a previous annotation is discovered--ignore the procedure in the video and simply click on the folder in annotation mode in the upper-left-hand corner and select the annotation to which you want to return)
  • 20:17 - Demo of graph annotation
  • 21:00 - Question about printing out annotations on the spot
    • (Not really feasible from the iPad--can be accomplished from the classroom computer.)
  • 22:25 - Using Doceri to annotate tables
  • 25:00 - Explanation of the difference between "Annotation Mode" and "Control Mode"
  • 26:50 - Question about "Range" of Doceri, i.e. "can you walk away from the classroom and remain connected to the computer?"
  • 27:35 - Conversation about saving, recalling, and sharing annotations
  • 29:20 - Benefits of being untethered from the podium: eye contact, increase movement, change in connection with students and overall classroom dynamics
  • 31:45 - Using the whiteboard to work out problems: possibilities and complications
    • (Doceri whiteboard is an essential feature)
  • 33:16  - Brief recording glitch
  • 33:20 - Question about using complicated programs with Doceri
  • 34:50 - Cautionary tale about making things too complicated in the classroom and detracting from the content

    • (No.)
  • 39:58 - Question about Powerpoint Presentation Mode--can Doceri be used to simulate Presentation Mode?
    • (No. Presentation Mode is only available at the moment in classrooms with an Apple iMac computer.)
    • (Also, in classrooms with iMacs and the ability to use Presentation Mode, Doceri will show the Presentation mode unless Powerpoint is configured in such a way that it shows the full-screen slides on both the computer and projector displays.)
    • More conversation about general classroom issues and ITS/Faculty communication
  • 48:48 - Conversation about how iPads might be used in attendee classes
    • 49:10 - Classics/Language

    • 1:02:50 - One can use their own computer to practice using Doceri before going "live"
  • (The remainder of the video consists of random experimentation)
