Create Whiteboard Recordings on the Updated eduClipper iPad App

The popular digital portfolio and bookmarking service eduClipper has released an updated iPad app that offers four awesome new features. The most notable of these features is whiteboard recording. This new feature allows you to create explanatory videos in a Khan Academy style or to narrate and annotate an item from your eduClipper library. Complementing the whiteboard recording feature is a new option to download your eduClips to your iPad or to Airdrop them to a computer.

The other new eduClipper iPad app features are updated annotation tools and a new notification center. The annotation tools now include options for changing the thickness of your lines, new line and font colors, and new font style choices. The new notification center resembles that of Google+ in that you're able to go back and view all notifications on each of your eduClips.

Applications for Education
The new option to create whiteboard videos in the eduClipper iPad app could be fantastic for having students explain their understanding of how to solve a mathematics problem. Those videos can then be added to their portfolios in eduClipper where you can then review them.
