Creating interactive video on the iPad

TouchCast is an iPad app that I downloaded recently and have been exploring a bit over the last couple of weeks. It's not often an app come along which really shakes up and existing genre like video, but I think TouchCast does and in a way that can be very beneficial for learners.

TouchCast is a bit like having a TV studio in your iPad. You can both film and produce really polished interactive content which can link to media and learning resources all over the web.

Here's a quick look at the kind of content you can produce.

I think this kind of tool can be really beneficial for creating flipped learning or video orientated learning as the speaker can guide learners to various learning resources on the web. They can also embed visual support for language learners such as text and images and even write over the video as though it were a whiteboard.

In my next posting I'll have a closer look at some of the features of TouchCast and how it can help you produce professional looking content, but for now watch the video and if you like it go and download a copy while it's still free (The free account enables you to produce up to 1 hour of content).

I hope you enjoy this great educational tool.
