App description

This open ended app provides the user with the ability create screen casts, digital books and simple animations.

Reviewers comments

Explain Everything has limitless opportunities for learners who can capture screen casts, digital recordings, images and annotations on any topic, adding photos, videos, drawn images, typed text and recording video and audio files. The App is essentially limited only by the “author’s” imagination and enables the user to share their created work through videos or photos.

The tool allows users to create slides then add detail to these using tools including digital pens, simple shapes, images and videos. Users can record each page and play back either one page at a time or a complete slide show of multiple pages. As this tool is so open-ended the opportunities for creative engagement are vast and content is controlled by the user.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
