Touchcast is an IOS app for creating smart, Interactive video for the classroom and beyond.
Imagine where students can watch a video, interact with web pages, read documents, PDFs, look at maps, take short quizzes, even check their investment portfolio all with out leaving the video.

TouchCast does have a medium complexity learning curve to master but beginners can get up and running with excellent results in a couple of hours.
The app is based around vApps (video apps). vApps are small apps that can be set up and delivered to pop up in the video at any time. The vApp can be interacted with while the video itself pauses (or not). Record the video direct from the iPad or import video clips; add sound clips, titles, whiteboards. Record with Green Screen technology and replace the background with still photos or video. Trim the video in app and add the vApps.
When you're ready share your video with social media (YouTube, Facebook, Twitter), copy the code for sharing, or embed into a web site.TouchCast has excellent support with video tutorials for its features.

The best feature of all...it's a FREE app. If you need privacy or the ability to live stream there is a paid version available. The TouchCast Studio works with iOS only (iPhone, iPad, iPod). There is a multiple camera set up by using a second and third device, and use another device as a remote control. So bring your iOS device, and if interested, download the app from the App Store ahead of the workshop.
