Doceri
◦ For iPad (iTunes App Store)
◦ Doceri Desktop - trial version at:
http://doceri.com/download.php
◦ A stylus
Camtasia
◦ Trial version at:
http://www.techsmith.com/camtasia.html
◦ A USB microphone (for better audio quality)
A plan – Generally “winging it” doesn’t end well;
especially with Doceri where order matters (no
cut and paste capability)

You can start Doceri either with or without
your computer
◦ Generally I start without the computer
Without computer
