How I Use It
This is an okay resource to review and help students develop a greater understanding of the content. The teacher can walk the students though a series of questions/problems and give them step by step instruction. The teacher could even lecture and bring in a power point presentation. It does not however have a feature to give instant feedback in the event the teacher wanted to go live with the class. I think going live is necessary with this app if it's really going to be effective.
My Take
As a teaching tool I think it was effective but I think there are a lot of tools that can do what this tool does and a lot more. I really like that the video caption was round and the set up was so simple. I don't think I would use this resource in the future as it was a bit confusing to navigate and it did not have detailed tutorials. The set up was simple but the tutorials were very bare.
