2 Materials

You will need the following materials:

  1. Webcam: any webcam with tripod mount (thread). The Logitech C920 is a popular camera with this feature
  2. Flexible camera mount: I prefer a goose-neck monopod with a sturdy clamp like this Smatree. This kind of mount is flexible enough to allow you to clamp the camera to your desk or to other furniture around your work area.
  3. Dry Erase (optional)
3 Equipment Setup

  1. Connect camera to monopod and point it toward the desired surface.
  2. Plug USB cable to your computer
  3. Start your favorite software: Panopto or Zoom
