Doceri software for iPad is a powerful new technology that affords an instructor a variety of pedagogical tools. Doceri is an application that can be used with any Windows or Macintosh computer to control the computer with an iPad. Anything that can be displayed on a desktop computer can be annotated over, and the annotated screen capture can be saved. There is also a whiteboard feature, in which the instructor can create handwritten or hand-drawn content on any of 48 backgrounds, and a timeline feature, which allows an instructor to play that content in real time as though it was being drawn at that moment. This technology allows an instructor to highlight easily items on display, to involve students more easily in problem-solving activities, and to have increased mobility in the classroom. Its use in both remote video classes and resident instruction classes is discussed.
