TouchCast: An Exciting New iPad Tool to Create Wildly Interactive Videos | Wired Educator

TouchCast: An Exciting New iPad Tool to Create Wildly Interactive Videos | Wired Educator | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

"TouchCast is an exciting new tool that combines video and the web in amazingly new interactive ways that I have never before seen. I believe TouchCast could be an exciting new for educators and students.

 

The ability to move and interact with the content on the screen during the video reminds me of the user interface used in the movie Minority Report. Very creative ability to both create and interact with various content. You can just tell when an app fully uses the capabilities of the iPad and TouchCast is one of those amazing apps that gets it right."
