We've also been getting our ELMOs from GovConnection, but, what I'm trying to figure out is whether it's worth it to buy a SMART document camera.  Supposedly, they have some kind of "extra" software that integrates with the SMARTBoard - but, is it worth $200 more?

Thanks, everyone.

Joanne,

Not sure which doc cams you are looking at, but I've found Kris Woodington
at gov connection gave me a quote for the new Elmo for quite a bit less than
I got from anyone else for that model.
