I'd like to second the use of the MagniLink cameras - when I was working
with students these were always checked out and were very popular.
Lightweight, easy to setup, and a few different connection options (some
students had large-screen monitors in their dorm rooms that they would
connect to as well).
Not cheap, but the students took very good care of the cameras when they
realized the quality. The cameras fit in a briefcase sized case that is
well-padded and there is a "travel" case that a student can use to
transport the camera to/from class.
Students tended to prefer the 1080HD version.
There are a few other devices that I remember researching:
SceneEye 500 - http://www.sightenhancement.com/index.php/products/sceneeye
Readit Scholar HD -
Mars HD -
