What is it?
A Digital OHP or Visualiser is a presentation resource that directly connects to a PC or projector. It can pick up any kind of material placed under it be it photographs or objects. It is essentially a camera which sits over a flat surface on which you place an object whose image/video is projected on screen.
Over the summer of 2012, Digital OHPs (also known as ‘visualiser’) will be installed in c. 80% of pool teaching rooms on campus, replacing traditional OHPs.
What are the advantages?
- Not restricted to OHPs. You are able to project black and white paper, objects and much much more
- Available in almost all teaching rooms
- Simple to use, no set up required
- Portable version available from the E-Learning Office
- Anything shown on the visualiser can also be captured by the ReVIEW lecture capture system
What are the disadvantages?
- Display surface is restrictive in size
What are the potential uses?
- Display of transparencies
- Use as an alternative to a flipchart, eg to draw diagrams in realtime or to make notes of class discussions
- Display objects (eg engineering components) on a large screen
