The name says it all – Explain Everything. This app is used for screencasting (screen recording). It’s similar to recordable interactive whiteboard apps such as Show Me and Screen Chomp. However, it’s much more complex. I think it’s more like a recordable version of PowerPoint or KeyNote. I actually think it’s more appropriate for teachers to use rather than students. I can see this primarily being used by teachers for tasks such as recording instructional movies. Although students could easily import existing PowerPoint/KeyNote presentations and turn them up a notch using this app.
Explain Everything is extremely robust – which perfectly justifies its price point. Start with a blank slate or import almost any type of existing file. I appreciate that you do not need to create an account; this makes it easier if you do decide to use this app with students.
