How I Use It
I have used it to create tutorials for students to reference outside of class. An example is here: http://youtu.be/pEJsFfWFWBk A blog I wrote about using Explain Everything is here: http://thecasalos.blogspot.com/2013/12/my-first-appsmash-including-some-os.html
My Take
Explain Everything is exactly as it sounds. The concept of a flipped lesson, a whiteboard that lets you record audio, sharing to the web, this app does it all. It integrates seamlessly with cloud platforms such as Google Drive and Dropbox. You can use it as a simple whiteboard app and record your notations, including audio voiceover as needed. The app is also great because it allows you to import previously recorded audio and video files, allowing you to mix newly created material with existing artifacts. Of all the apps in the app store this is definitely one worth purchasing. The ability to literally explain anything for your students and share it via YouTube or popular cloud services make this app invaluable.
