TouchCast - Creating interactive video on the iPad

TouchCast - Creating interactive video on the iPad | FACS | Scoop.it

TouchCast is an iPad app that I downloaded recently and have been exploring a bit over the last couple of weeks. It's not often an app come along which really shakes up and existing genre like video, but I think TouchCast does and in a way that can be very beneficial for learners.

EWC Presenter now offers its users a really beautiful collection of vector graphics which are to be found in the library of assets.

The article explains the difference between an ordinary image and a vector graphic - a piece of knowledge for non-professionals.
