Explain Everything


Explain Everything is an easy-to-use design tool that lets you annotate, animate, and narrate explanations and presentations. You can create dynamic interactive lessons, activities, assessments, and tutorials using Explain Everything’s flexible and integrated design. Use Explain Everything as an interactive whiteboard using the iPad video display (via Airplay/cable).

Insert a web browser for live annotations and basic recordings.

Explain Everything records on-screen drawing, annotation, object movement and captures audio via the iPad microphone.

Import Photos, PDF, PPT, XLS, RTF, Pages, Numbers and Keynote from Dropbox, Evernote, Box, WebDAV, Email, iPad photo roll and the iPad camera. Export MP4 movie files, PNG image files, PDFs and share the .XPL project file with others for collaboration.

I have not used Explain Everything yet. I have used Educreations for creating narrated whiteboard lessons. I think from reading about Explain Everything it has a lot of versatility that I have not seen in other similar apps. I’m excited to use it!
