On 8th February I attended an event in Sheffield which was hosted by the Media Enhanced Learning Special Interest Group (MELSIG). The aim of the event was to disseminate good practice using a range of mobile devices – mainly tablets and not surprisingly, mainly iPads. One session I attended which was facilitated by Chrissi Nerantzi & Olaojo Aiyegbayo, was called Killer Apps. It was here I heard about Explain Everything.
What is it?
It’s a presentation app which allows you to create a deck of presentation slides. It records audio, annotation and animation. Not impressed so far? Read on…
What does it do?
Using its built in annotation features, it allows you to create a page, record an audio narration, add visual annotations and animations, then save the recording as a video for others to consume. Don’t worry if your presentation already exists in powerpoint, you can import it and use Explain Everything to add your audio and annotations on top.
How can I use it in my teaching?
The options are endless. Use it to explain a maths concept to ITE students. Use it to highlight anatomical features for physio students or access issues for OT students. Get students to use it to provide collaborative feedback on each other’s work. Create a revision resource for your students or create a multimedia lecture.
How much does it cost?
£1.99 from the app store.
