Grade levels: All grades

Sphere2 is a visualizer software that works with AVer document cameras. The tools allow teachers to control and present live video from their connected document camera, annotate or manipulate the image, and record it all for playback later. Other features include a spotlight tool and visor tool that help focus attention to key areas of an image, a built-in digital whiteboard, picture-in-picture or side-by-side display of two or three image sources, and document camera controls for easy access.

Access: Sphere2 is available for teachers to install through the Microsoft InTune Portal in the Edge web browser.
