Explain Everything for Windows 8 - now available

  • Comments 2

I’ve been away for a nice holiday, and now that I’m back I’m staring at a huge backlog of blog posts to write up, as there’s been so much happening and announced whilst I’ve been away. And because many schools, TAFEs and universities are heading back next week, I thought I’d better get started…

There have been some great new apps added to the Education section of the Windows 8 store recently, and one of the highest profile ones is Explain Everything for Windows 8.

imageExplain Everything for Windows 8 is an easy-to-use design, screencasting, and interactive whiteboard tool that lets you annotate, animate, narrate, import, and export almost anything to and from almost anywhere. You can use it to create slides, draw in any colour, add shapes, add text, and use a laser pointer. It allows you to rotate, move and arrange any object added to the stage, and then to record and playback your screencast.image

You start by using an existing images or PDFs (you can save Office files directly as PDFs within Word and PowerPoint) and then use a variety of tools to edit and annotate as you go along – with Explain Everything recording all the actions for playback later as a video file or still images.

Download Explain Everything from the Windows Store

  • No matter how much I love and want to use this app on my PC I cannot for the life of me find out how to download it.

    Any help - looking for the big button with download on it - nowhere to be found....

  • Hi Clare,

    If you're running Windows 8, then the link above should load a new web page that then automatically opens the download page in the Windows Store. If you're not seeing that, then I guess you're running an earlier version of Windows, which isn't compatible with this version of Explain Everything.
