Pop-up Videos X Explain Everything

In my never ending blog posts about how to use Explain Everything, here is a new one, creating pop-up style videos.  The process is best explained via video tutorial (below), but the final product will essentially look like the videos that VH1 created in the mid 90s.

Process:
1. Shoot raw video
2. Insert into Explain Everything
3. Record screen & play video
4. Switch record option to "is mixed with existing"
5. Reveal time slider by tapping on the timing indicator
6. Slide the recording to the desired location for a pop-up element
7. Insert element & record the screen
8. Delete element at the end of the recorded section
9. Repeat the process to include multiple pop-up elements (both image & video)
10. Export to the camera roll, YouTube, Vimeo, Google Drive, etc...



There is tremendous potential for this sort of video creation in the classroom and with a bit of #appsmashing, students can create quite the final product.

How would you integrate Explain Everything pop-up videos into your classroom?

  1. Perfect timing! I was looking for a new idea for EE. Thanks, Greg. This really reminds me of a news reporter sitting at the news desk with graphics popping up as s/he talks. I will have to experiment with text boxes. I'm thinking about key vocabulary being highlighted through the pop up. Thanks, again, for the inspiration.
