This sounded good: how to use an iPad as an interactive whiteboard, using some software called Doceri. I thought, if I watched this, I’d learn what Doceri is and how to use it. Well, I watched 4 minutes of this 7-minute video, and after that time, I was really no wiser as to what Doceri is, or how you can use an iPad as an interactive whiteboard. Apparently, you hook it up to a computer, and you need a projector, and you need Doceri, and you need at least one other bit of software… after that I tuned out. And this guy needs not just ONE video but TWO to tell you all this and more. You still awake?

If you want to know what Doceri is and does, I think we’re better off going to the Doceri website. I did get a tip on something called ink2go, which looks more useful for what I want to do.

The above video breaks a basic guideline for instructional videos: explain clearly in the first few seconds what the video is about and why the viewer should keep watching.
