Mobile Applications

Screencasting for Mobile Devices

These apps are free and allow the user to draw and write free-form on the iPad screen as you might do with a Tablet PC. The ease of use of these two apps makes screencasting a possibility for the iPad. It would be very easy to turn out a quick screencast for a class.  Limitations include a lack of options for exporting video. Screenchomp only exports to Facebook, and EduCreations only connects with Facebook or its own third-party video hosting service.
