Doceri is an iPad interactive annotator and whiteboard with screencast recorder and built in Wireless Remote Desktop Control. In practical terms this means you will be able to control the desktop PC from your iPad with the added ability to annotate and record your session. Doceri is available from Semester 1, 2013 on all Desktop PCs (GATCF computers) in JCU common teaching rooms.
