Knowmia Teach

Knowmia Teach is a free lesson planning and recording tool for teachers and their students. It helps you create short video lessons on any subject and publish them on so students, other teachers and the public can find them. Knowmia Teach makes it easy to bring in visual aids from multiple sources, organize them in steps (like slides in a presentation) and use your own voice to bring your lesson to life.

Vittles combine your photos, handwriting, and voice into engaging videos that can be easily shared with anyone.

Playback - Screencast Creator for Dropbox

Use playback to write, sketch and type on a virtual whitboard or over your presentation slides. Playback will record your annotations along with audio commentary to produce a movie you can share. Movies can be emailed, saved to the iPad’s Camera Roll or opened in any compatible apps you have installed such as Dropbox and Evernote. A PDF of your slides including all your annotations can also be exported and used as companion notes to your movie.


Create and share dynamic conversations around documents, snapshots, diagrams and videos. You can talk, type, and draw right on the screen. VoiceThread takes your conversations to the next level, capturing your presence, not just your comments. Anyone can join the discussion from their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or PC.
