3 Easy Ways to Record Educational Screencasts Using Your iPad 

3 Easy Ways to Record Educational Screencasts Using Your iPad  | Teaching tools for undergraduates | Scoop.it
In today’s post, I am sharing with you some interesting tips I learned from Jonathan Wylie  to help you record your iPad screen and create instructional screencasts and tutorials. The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of creating a screencast on iPad are those popular apps such as Explain Everything and Educreations but the thing with these apps is that they do not allow you to record what you do on other apps. For instance, you can not open Explain Everything and go to Evernote app to record your screen there, once Explain Everything window is closed , recording stops.

To be able to navigate your iPad and record this navigation, you will need to mirror your iPad screen to a bigger screen that is your computer. Once you can access your iPad screen  from your computer, you can then use a screencasting tool to record your iPad screen. Here is how you can do it all:

Nearpod works on all different types of devices. Making it good for a BYOD class.

Baiba, my mistake and my apologies. I mixed up one post of yours with another and got myself confused. I have deleted my comments and I apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused.

Keep up the great curation work.

A comparison of the features, scope and price of the 3 main tools. Also see emaze.com - more interesting than PowerPoint, less 'dangerous' than Prezi!

Teri Thomas's curator insight, April 10, 2014 10:07 AM

Yes, Prezi is an option for some presentations, the most universal information in this piece is the 2nd to last line.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, April 11, 2014 12:38 PM
Baiba Svenca's insight:

The article compares three most used presentation tools - PowerPoint, Keynote and Prezi. There is a table that sums up pros and cons of each software and helps you decide which one is the best for you.

Useful discussion about the fifferences and possible uses of the Lssson tool vs the Quiz tool and a consideration of the Book resource including Glenys Hanson's useful suggestions for using Book

Jasmin Hodge's curator insight, June 23, 2013 2:46 PM

Useful to help engage staff, the great examples and explanation of differences between activitites help, especially when contextualised.  I hope to 'relaunch' all Moodle activities to staff through 5/10 minute webinars using our upgrade as the opportunity.
