  • Lensoo Create is an iPad and Android app to record what happens on a tablet’s whiteboard.
  • Explain Everything is my favorite iPad app for recording what happens on a whiteboard. You can add pdfs, images, drawings, shapes, colors, and more! You have so many possibilities from digital storytelling to flipping the classroom to creating how-to videos.
  • Other iPad apps similar to Explain Everything are Educreations (web version), Screen Chomp, and ShowMe.
  • Jing is another tool to capture your screen. You need to download it.
