The online teaching space has seen a significant increase in participants over the last few years. Not only has the global pandemic forced many schools and universities to conduct their classes online, but

advancements in distance learning technology have also enabled and encouraged people from around the world to receive an education online. As an educator in a classroom, you have many tools that facilitate learning at your disposal, such as a whiteboard or a projector. When you are teaching online you may have some props on hand, but the problem you may face is that everything needs to be conveyed through a camera. A stationary camera can sometimes make it difficult to present material in an engaging way and everything has to be held up to the camera for students to be able to see it, making documents especially hard to capture.

The AVer M11-8MV interactive visualizer was designed to eliminate these issues and seeks to improve the online teaching experience for both educators and learners. Also known as a document camera, the M11-8MV was created with digital and distance learning in mind. The device is lightweight and compact, made up of a mechanical arm that pivots the camera up and down. This enables the camera to capture documents from the top down and creates space for the educator to work underneath the lens without the body of the device getting in the way.  The camera lens can also be rotated 180° to capture documents at different angles or even the educator themselves as they are busy with an online teaching session. The camera is equipped with an LED light to improve visibility and also has a built-in microphone for better audio quality. The upright design of the device allows up to an A3 paper size capture zone and with 20x zoom capabilities you are able to present fine details clearly even on documents of this size.

As with any of AVer’s devices, the M11-8MV is very easy to set up and requires only a USB connection to your desktop or laptop. The camera can be connected to platforms such as Zoom or Skype and is exceedingly simple to set up for online teaching. The user is able to capture images or record video directly onto a USB storage device or SD card and is the perfect camera to capture presenters or visualise teaching materials. If you are interested in taking online teaching to the next level, then this could be the device for you!
