What's it about?
EDUCREATIONS INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD lets users begin creating a whiteboard-style slide by adding images from the choices in the drop-down menu or by writing (choose a color and finger-write or type using the on-screen keypad). Creators can move around and resize images and text, as well as draw directly on the images. There is no limit to the number of slides in a presentation. There is also an option to record audio over the slides. Users can save, categorize by subject, and share their presentations. Free users can save one draft presentation at a time, and paid users can have unlimited drafts in progress. Subscription packages offer more storage, sharing, and download options; check the developer's website for the range of options to figure out which one best fits your needs.
Is it any good?
This versatile tool makes it easy to create a multipage presentation or lesson. Photos can be resized and moved around the pages with ease, and the colors for writing or marking the images are fun and help highlight points on the board. Recording a voice-over is as simple as a tap, and the audio plays back clearly. The app also makes it incredibly easy to categorize, save, and share creations publicly or privately. The biggest drawback is that, while you can edit your video and trim out mistakes, it's still critical to carefully plan since editing after is more cumbersome than getting it right the first time. Being able to piece together shorter clips would make it easier for kids who struggle with presenting.
