The ALL In Learning doc cam is meant for use with ALL In Learning's cloud-based solution for easy in-class bubble sheet scanning and, of course, for use as a doc cam. It can be purchased by schools with a subscription to ALL In Learning but is also available on sites like Amazon.com for individual purchase.
If you have an ALL In Learning account:
Log into www.allinlearning.com and see the bubble sheet scanning instructions on the Home tab, and the "Doc Cam" feature under Lessons/Assessments>Teacher Tools. Also, see these articles:

Using the ALL In Learning Doc Cam without ALL In Learning software:
The camera itself can't scan bubble sheets without the ALL In Learning software, but it's UVC web-standard compliant, so it will work with programs like Flash, Skype, Google Chat, or FaceTime. There are also some free cam applications available online which should work -- we have seen users have good results with a free application called YAWCAM. Note, however, that we don't provide support for any 3rd party software.
Using the Hardware Features on the Camera
Connecting to a Computer
The ALL In Learning Doc Cam has a built-in standard USB 3.0 cable connection and plugs directly into the USB plugs on your computer for using ALL in Learning software.
To prevent refocusing delays and wrong things stealing focus (like a teacher's hand pointing at a spot on a page), this doc cam's focus is manually set.
Early versions of the ALL In Learning Doc Cam had a built-in light with a switch. We recommend when scanning bubble sheets that the light be kept off, as it can cause A) reflections off of lamination, pen ink, and pencil lead that make filled-in bubbles harder to detect, slowing down the scanning process, and B) an bright spot in the center of the page that slows down scanning. Because of the commonality of these problems and to reduce confusion, the built-in light was disabled on later versions of the camera.
