Online tutors who are up-to-date on technology typically use a document camera for your online tutoring sessions. You should have a “doc cam” too so that your tutor can see your mistakes when you share screens during your tutoring session. A doc cam allows for a better connection between the tutor and student. It helps students feel more like they’re in the classroom, learning with the teacher.
Here a list of some of the top document cameras, best suited for your needs.
- IPEVO easily plugs into your laptop and is easy to set up. This camera is really easy to use so there is no need to be a technology expert. The camera has an adjustable arm so that you can show your notes to your tutor. The picture quality is excellent and you can easily rotate the picture and brightness level. The lag in the video is minimal.
- Kodak NUSCAN Q500. This camera has a clear picture.
- Elmo is a well-known brand with a good reputation. Note: this is a more expensive option.
It takes only a few minutes to install and set up a document camera. Once you have done so, you will be fully prepared for an online tutoring session.
