Doceri is an iPad-based presentation tool that includes screencast recording, an interactive whiteboard, and hand drawn graphics and annotations. Teachers can control their desktop from their iPads, launching and controlling their Power Points or other presentation formats with the touch screen. Using Doceri’s pen or highlighter tool, teachers can annotate important features of each slide. Teachers can create new slides and order them appropriately with the timeline-based editing system. Teachers can record these presentations for viewing at home, or they can use the digital whiteboard tool live in class.

SP Controls was founded in 1995 by Paul Brown and Gary Arcudi, who developed and deployed their first smart panel 15 years ago at Stanford. Doceri is the “ultimate realization of the quest we embarked on when we started SP Controls - the quest for the "one remote" to simply and easily control all the devices in your classrooms.”
The Doceri team is based in South San Francisco, CA. They released the original iPad app in 2011 and have plans to release the app on Android and Windows8/RT in Fall 2013. Since Doceri was released on the iPad, it has over 250,000 downloads as of October 2013.
