Teaching Improvement Through Video Observation

iris LiveView

The iris LiveView is a uniquely powerful tool for remote, live teacher coaching and collaboration.

iris LiveView gives a remote observer full control of the classroom camera from anywhere in the world, in real-time! That means that with only a computer and an internet connection, an instructional coach can see every corner of a room and hear high definition audio.


Audio is captured with two HD wireless, rechargeable microphones. A remote observer can also provide real-time, in-ear coaching, for immediate feedback.
