Tech Tip: Choose a document camera

Webcams, and digital camers have come way down in price, but now there's something on the market that puts a Document Camera  easily within the reach of every classroom. The HUE HD webcam is very reasonably priced.  But along with the reasonable price, you also get a quality product.  HUE cameras are USB and compatible with Windows, and Mac.  HUE also provides support for Linux which means that the lower cost netbooks would also benefit from the HUE.  With a flexible, snakelike arm supporting the HUE camera head you are enable to set the HUE to focus on just about anything you want.  The arm can either plug directly into your computer's USB port or into a provided base that allows for stable use. These two features make the HUE HD a very passable document camera allowing teachers to project images from books, papers, close-ups of small objects as well as allowing recording of demonstrations and actvities.

So as they ask on their website: Which HUE are you?

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
