HoverCam, an innovative technology leader in the education market, announced that it has redesigned its Flex 11 software to fully integrate with Zoom, one of the chosen UC platforms for remote classrooms. HoverCam is already compatible with popular remote conferencing programs including Skype, Google Hangouts™, Google Meet™, and Microsoft Teams™. Now, teachers can initiate and schedule Zoom calls directly from HoverCam’s free, comprehensive document camera software. This integration eliminates any complexity, errors, and time wasted opening and switching between the two applications, delivering an intuitive workflow for teachers and an engaging, productive learning experience for students.
“We recognized some teachers were confused using their document camera, with Zoom requiring settings changes that interrupted their lesson and were a distraction to students,” said Bayley Pierson, HoverCam’s marketing director. “By integrating Zoom, we’re standing by our commitment to transform the teaching and learning experience — whether it’s in a classroom, remotely, or blended learning — by engineering simple, smart solutions. With Zoom capabilities built into Flex 11, teachers don’t have to spend valuable time wrestling with technology and can get back to creating an engaging, successful lesson. We recognize some users have security concerns and may not feel comfortable using third-party video conferencing programs, so we’ve made it easy to disable Zoom functionality within the software settings.”
