Hi, do any of you use Doceri to control your classroom computer remotely or to make screencasts for a flipped classroom? I've heard of Splashtop, but have read that Doceri offers more. I tried searching through the Simple k12 community about this app, but didn't find anything.

We are starting to use Doceri in our district. It is pretty robust. I wish that I had more information for you. We had teachers try out several options and this is the one that they liked the best. One way we are using it is with low vision students. They can project what the teacher has on the screen on their ipad and then adjust the size.

I bought the Doceri app earlier this summer, but I haven't played with it to become familiar its functionality. It was an app recommended by a speaker at a technology camp our district's technology department put on after school ended last June. A colleague of mine who teaches first grade bought Splashtop for the district-owned iPad she is using. I don't know enough to tell you which app is better, but the speaker at our tech camp preferred Doceri. Please tell us your experiences once you get started with either one of these apps. I will be sure to share my experiences.

Thank you for the responses. I guess I will have to try it out using a free trial. I am hoping I can easily create a screencast over my PowerPoints. I think I must do that on the computer rather than the iPad.

Have you tried using Prezi?

Wonder if saving PowerPoint as images and bringing into doceri If that would be a place to start, then add and record

If Doceri works like Splashtop Whiteboard (and I believe they are similar). You can control your desktop from your iPad. i.e. open files, play slideshows, etc. that are on your computer using your iPad (as long as your iPad and computer are connected). Anything that you would do on your computer can be done through your connected iPad. It can also be used as a whiteboard. You can even annotate on whatever you happen to be projecting. I chose Splashtop Whiteboard since it cost less than Doceri. Had some connection issues initially, but that was mostly on our end due to our server and the safeguards that are in place. If this happens to you, your tech department will be able to help.

That sounds really cool. I would like to try it! Does this work better with a Mac or PC?

I know that both of these apps cost, but has anyone have a issue with students manipulating your desktop with their version of these apps? I have heard instances of this happening, mostly in schools with BYOD.
