What is Explain Everything?
Explain Everything is essentially a never ending white board. You can add text, images, audio, video and even record screen movements. This app is a great tool for presentations or hand in assignments



Getting Started
When you enter the Explain Everything app, you will see a screen similar to this one. To create a new file, touch the plus in the top left corner, the page with the plus will start a new page using an existing file. The send button is used when you hold your finger on a file. The gear on the top right is to change the settings, and the "i" in the circle is a help tool. The backups folder to the left is where lost work goes. For instance if you exit the app without saving, your work will be in this folder. Your work will not be in this folder if you deny saving, by hitting no when the app asks if you would like to save

Why use Explain Everything?
This app is great for students to make their projects more interesting. For example, a math class could use this app to explain polynomials. The students can draw equations on the app or print on paper and insert a photo. They can also video themselves solving a problem.
