Su Doug,
Sounds like the beginning of a great thing. I know nothing about pad
cameras but I think there is an important first question - What is it you
want to create? Better visual lectures? A students-centered learning
environment? Those two among many would ask for very different requests.
Arts is so well documented on the internet in many different ways, would
you want to use that resourse? Good luck with your project. Carole
