Amazing!

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: I use this frequently as part of my teaching. It was necessary to be able to properly deliver information to students online.

Pros:

This is one of the absolute best products in its space. I have tried to find free alternatives, but nothing compares to the features and functionality of EE. It is definitely worth the money if you are an educator teaching online.

Cons:

I wish that some of the drawing tools were a little bit more powerful, but aside from that, no real complaints. Given that it is more for annotating / writing notes, I can see why the pure drawing features may not be at the top of the list of priorities.

I won't teach with out it

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: I love it!! I use this program EVERY day in my classroom. It will project any file onto my screen that I can write on or manipulate to help my students learn.

Pros:

I love being able to pull up my notes in pdf form and can write on them with my students. I can highlight, manipulate shapes, use different colors for emphasis, and work out problems. I also like to flip my classroom for part of the year and this allows me to make videos using the same format that they are use to in class. I simply teach the lesson using explain everything while recording my voice and writing on the notes. It is easy to upload to any platform and share with my students. This program made a huge difference when we had to teach in an online platform when schools shut down. Since I use this program everyday, the students had a smooth transition to online learning.

Cons:

There is not much that I do not like about this program, however I do with it had a few more shapes to incorporate for geometry.

Explain concepts more clearly using Explain Everything's intuitive whiteboard

4.0 7 months ago

Pros:

Explain Everything provides more engaging slide presentations. It helps explain concepts in a clearer way, as Its whiteboards are very intuitive and can support multi formats: image/video, audio, file, clipart, sticky notes, screenshot, emojis, etc. Using Explain Everything enables us to design presentations in more creative, interesting, and fun ways not only for younger learners but also for adult learners.

Cons:

Sometimes It needs a bit of delay to open and save a project compared to other digital tools that I have ever used.

I LOVE Explain Everything!

5.0 3 months ago

Comments: Have I said that I love Explain Everything? I'm serious, it's so cool, and it's fun to use. Try it, and try the free certification course they provide. Then make something!

Pros:

I am actually excited to write this review. I love Explain Everything so much! It is such an amazing tool. I have been familiar with EE in teaching for many years and have seen it evolve. In its current feature-rich (an understatement) version, it is possible for someone who has not studied graphic design or video editing (me!) to make engaging and informative content. It is accessible to someone without a lot of training, and it can do so many things, but at the same time, I don't end up creating cookie-cutter content. I have to dial back my enthusiasm, lest you think I'm unhinged.

Cons:

Part of using Explain Everything is putting some time in to learning it. It's not nearly as hard to learn as something like Photoshop, but it's not as easy as, say, Google sites. Explain Everything is worth the time. And the creators have made boatloads of new instructional resources (made with Explain Everything, of course) that have helped me get to a level where I feel more fluent with the tools.
