“Explain Everything is an easy-to-use design tool that lets you annotate, animate, and narrate explanations and presentations. You can create dynamic interactive lessons, activities, assessments, and tutorials using Explain Everything’s flexible and integrated design. Use Explain Everything as an interactive whiteboard using the iPad2 video display. Explain Everything records on-screen drawing, annotation, object movement and captures audio via the iPad microphone. Import Photos, PDF, PPT, and Keynote from Dropbox, Evernote, Email, iPad photo roll and iPad2 camera. Export MP4 movie files, PNG image files, and share the .XPL project file with others for collaboration.”
Learners have used Explain Everything during a practical sports session. They were able to video record skills, activities or games using a mobile device (such as an IPAD) before importing the video to EE. Once imported they were able to position the video on a slide before analysing in real time. This included annotating and comment on the athletes performance on to the slide. EE allows several videos and images to be imported on the each slide. This allows for comparison between different performances or performers.
Finally, students were able to record their finished presentation (multiple videos and slides) using EE including any verbal feedback to the participant/s before exporting the final product as a MP4 movie file straight to Google Drive.
