Sketchcast is a great way to demonstrate ideas and concepts through drawing and voice. Using Sketchcast is as easy as drawing on a white board while explaining a concept. Sketchcast provides users with a place sketch diagrams while speaking at the same time. The sketches can then be embedded into a blog or shared via email.
Applications for Educators
Sketchcast is useful for creating short video tutorials for students. Teachers who are using blogs, wikis, or other websites with their classes will enjoy the ability to quickly create a sketch while explaining a concept to students and then quickly embed that sketch into their blog or wiki.
