Sharing a Document Camera in Zoom

If you would like to share a document camera through Zoom, make sure it is connected directly to the computer (usually via USB). If teaching from a classroom, most of the document cameras will work in Zoom by following these same steps. Get in touch with Classroom Support if the document camera is not working in a classroom.

Once in the Zoom call, select Share Screen at the bottom.
