Swivl

TIP Sheets & Frequently Asked Questions

TIP Sheets and Resources

What is the Swivl?

The Swivl is a video recording system. The equipment consists of a robotic base on a tripod which uses an infrared signal to track the wireless microphone worn by the teacher/presenter. The base holds an iPod to record the audio/video. After the lesson is captured, it is automatically uploaded to the Swivl Cloud where it can easily be shared with a video URL link.

How do I reserve the Swivl?

NPAS teachers can reserve the Swivl for classroom instruction or self-reflection activities. Email Shawn Brandt (sbrandt@isd721.org) the date/time you would like to reserve the equipment. In most cases, Shawn will deliver the equipment to your classroom and pick it up at the end of the day.
