When using the iOS version of Explain Everything you can now more easily share your whiteboard via your favorite video conferencing tools with a few taps.
The pricing and products should be much clearer now thanks to updates to the pricing page on the Explain Everything website. There are still lots of choices - but they should be easier to navigate and understand.
You can now easily switch between three user interface modes (and more are coming not just to iOS but other platforms) from the record screen. The presenter mode is especially useful when sharing your device screen via a video call.
It is now possible to browse and add files from your Slack workspace directly onto the canvas when using the web version of Explain Everything. You have to first add a Chrome browser extension and then authorize it for Slack (this is done in seconds). After that it becomes super easy to find images, videos, and documents that are needed for a video or a collaborative discussion.
Use the inspector to select an object or multiple object on the canvas. Then click on the 'Export' button to quickly download the selection as a PNG image. Quick and easy!
Explain Everything now can insert images from Unsplash, one of the best resources for free-to-use high quality photographs.
Last week I shared the first two phases of a mockup and feedback process. Above is the final product.
We're working on a postcard insert to give to audience members at an event next week. I put together a proof of concept of the general idea and handed it off to the team. Then, a more polished draft was created and shared in Jira. Then, I gave a little more feedback on it. We'll see where the final design lands.
Explain Everything now has a Slack Files integration. This makes it easy to pull together various attachments that might be a in channel or private message group on a shared canvas. This can be especially helpful when needing to explain a report or give feedback on a design or just see the bigger picture which is not always easy in a linear, vertical chat. Combine this with the Explain Everything Slack App and you can really extend your communication, productivity, and collaboration across distance and time.
Sometimes a document that is going to be used for an activity or a reflection can use additional guidance which is not easy to put in written words. And sometimes, those written words are hard to follow at least the first time that they are presented. To address this, you can easily create a short whiteboard video of you showing and telling about the document and share it with the intended audience before, during, or after the related session or instructional delivery.
