How I Use It
I used this product to create videos to correspond with lessons in the math text (https://vimeo.com/channels/735355). Students could watch the videos at home or during work time in class to have the lesson again. I created a channel on my Vimeo account where they could be accessed.
My Take
This product has some great features. I scanned math pages into pdfs and loaded them directly into the app. There is an assortment of writing and pointing tools which were useful. A feature that was particularly helpful is that you can redo a portion of the video if you make a mistake. Educreations is simpler to use, but if you make a mistake, you have to start all over again.
