Explain Everything is a whiteboard video creation tool with many features that make it very versatile for use in the classroom.
Ideas for using
Tips and Tricks
- Students can import a file or image to start their task instead of always beginning with a blank slate. For example, you could share an image/file of a Maths problem that students import into their first slide to commence their explanation.
- For younger students or those just beginning with the app, change the settings so only the simple tools are shown.
- Use the app to create video instructions for your class to complete a task they often need to do. (Flipped Classroom)
- Although you can take a photo using the camera within the app, it is better practice to collate the assets you need in an album in the camera roll first so that you can easily access them again in the future if you need to edit at a later date.
- Switch between the simple interface and the complete toolset?
- Insert a picture from your camera roll (and crop it to select the part you want)?
- Add a second (and third and fourth...) slide?
- Reorder your slides?
- Delete a slide?
- Add audio to a slide?
- Edit your audio?
- Use a laser pointer or annotate as you record?
- Insert a video and annotate over the top of it?
- Split an audio track to delete a section?
- Join two pieces of edited audio track? (Hint: what does "mark" do?)
- Group two objects?
- Lock a piece of text so it will not move?
- Delete a piece of drawing?
- Find help on the internet?
