Share Both Your Face and Doc Cam in Microsoft Teams!

Looking to make your virtual lessons more engaging? Consider sharing two cameras at once — a front-facing webcam and a document camera. Sharing two cameras can work wonders in making your virtual lessons more like in-classroom lessons. 

The below instructions will show you how you can share both cameras at once, with your document camera taking up the majority of the screen and your front-facing camera appearing in the corner. 

To follow the steps below you’ll need OKIOCAM Snapshot and Recorder — our completely free live presentation, photo, and video recording app. Click here to download it. Once you’re all set, let’s go!

  1. After joining the Microsoft Teams call, ensure that your front-facing webcam is selected as your Camera. If your document camera is currently being used as the Camera, here’s how you can change it to your front-facing camera.
  • Click the More options icon (the three dots).
  • Select Device settings.
  • Under the Camera heading, select your front-facing webcam.
  1. Launch OKIOCAM Snapshot and Recorder.
  1. In Microsoft Teams, click Share content.
  1. Select OKIOCAM Snapshot and Recorder | Live Mode.
You are now sharing OKIOCAM Snapshot and Recorder with anyone on the call. This image shows what the other people on the call will see
  1. When you want to stop screen sharing, click Stop presenting.
