"What you can do with TabCam and the app leads right into the way testing is going to be for new Common Core Standards. I love the ability to annotate and edit, as it's so authentic for the kids to be able to put their own work up and see what corrections are needed, where they need to add, and to interact with it as a whole." — Kathy Schlief, Teacher, Campbell, CA

"It has been a wonderful experience working with AVer solutions. I presented our sales rep, Mike Hiller, with our situation and he was quick to respond with a solution. I found AVer's tech support to be very insightful and was always just a phone call away..." — J. Todd Chicchirichi, Technology Resource Faciliator, Head Technologist, Jefferson County Schools
