Upgraded flipped videos

A long time since I have posted anything, but thought I would do a quick update around my use of flipped videos.

I have been getting quite frustrated at the lack of flexibility that Explain Everything on iPad offers when working with powerpoint files. You can only import certain types of backgrounds and you always lose out when it comes to maintaining formatting. Granted there are some positive aspects about the app, in particular the ability to record each slide individually. When you are an unconfident speaker (like myself), this comes in handy when needing multiple recording attempts!

During the October holidays, I upgraded my laptop which allowed me the opportunity to trial Camtasia. Below is my first attempt using the software to create a flipped video. I am impressed with everything Camtasia has to offer and will definitely be looking into purchasing a license. I’m not 100% sure about having my mug in the videos, but it probably makes the videos a little more personal for the students. Once I get a little more experience using Camtasia, I will post a mini review highlighting some of the great features the software offers.

Have you tried flipping your camtasia videos using Versoapp. It is great for accountability, data re student collaboration in terms of quantity and peer assessed quality.

Good idea exporting ppt to PDF before importing to Explain Everything. Thanks for the tip!
