“Introduction to Educreations”

Date: Thursday, September 4, 2014

Educreations is a free downloadable app for the iPad that allows instructors to make narrated videos as they write out problems with a stylus pen on the iPad screen. The created videos can then be uploaded for student access on a website. The ability for students to access videos on their own time and review questions other than their own notes can be a valuable instructional tool for both distance education and regular inclass students.

In this session, I will be talking about ways the program can be used effectively in the classroom, how to create videos and how to upload them for your students to access.

As example video I have for STAT 1000 can be found at .

Though it is not necessary, feel free to come with the app pre-installed on your iPad to try it out during the seminar.
