Document cameras (also called visual presenters) replace the need for overhead projectors in today's classrooms. Not only can they be used for showing transparencies, they also allow for the display of non-transparent three dimensional objects.
The Media Center has been installing more document cameras in classrooms each year here at Canisius. Currently, 70+ classrooms are equipped with a document camera. Our survey findings have shown a slight increase in the use of the document camera over time.
