Search Knowledge Base: (MOVED) How to use my phone as a document camera This article has been moved to the new OIT Knowledge Base. This article will be retired. Please update your bookmark. If you need to show something on Zoom that you would normally show on a document camera, you can do this using your smartphone. You can connect your Android, Windows, or iPhone to a Zoom session you are hosting at the same time you are connected to the session from your laptop. Create a make-shift tripod by stacking books or boxes and inserting your phone between the stacks until you get a good view of your paper. You may need to angle the phone slightly and sandwich it between something to keep it steady. Then, all you have to do is connect your device to your Zoom session. To connect your phone to your Zoom session: Download the Zoom client to your phone from your app store. Log in with your account. (Don't forget to choose the SSO login!) Join your class in progress. Important Tip: make sure you do NOT join audio from your phone or you'll get an echo. When you're ready to write, draw, or show an object, go to Zoom on your phone and choose Share Screen.
