In this weeks episode we have on the SAP couch Reshan Richards from ExplainEverything.com. Reshan is the Co Founder and chief learning officer for explain everything. In this interview he takes us through the features of the explain everything app and what it can do.

The Explain everything app is a collaborative and interactive whiteboard, you can also use it for projects, add backgrounds, add objects, write on the app, screencast with the app, add in HD videos and you can even work on projects from around the world at the same time.

This is an amazing app to add to your screencasting toolbox and it is also useful for on the go professionals, teachers and educators.

 

Screencast tip of the week

If your using video in your screencast videos, then highly recommend the Logitech c920 Web Cam. It's the camera that I use when recording video, I don't use a fancy $1000 camera I don't need to you can have great quality video with the Logitech Web Cam. If your going to be using the Logitech then I also recommend grabbing the web cam settings app to go with it, it has more advanced options when it comes to tweaking the video and the lighting, white balance etc.

So that is my screencast tip of the week

Screencast tip of the week

when using transitions stick to only a few. There are either the dip to black/white or the cross dissolve. Too many people over use transitions that are available to them. If your goal is teaching transitions then by all means go ahead and use them all, if it's not, only use the ones I suggest. Adding transitions can and will detract from your message.

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:

Why Jeff Uses final cut pro to add intro outs 

He uses Compressor to slim down his videos and batch create saves time
