Teachers can upload or create assignments that let students type, enter numbers, draw (with a mouse or their finger, depending on the device), upload an image, or answer multiple-choice questions. Teachers can create classes (manually or by filling out a template spreadsheet) and then distribute their assignments to students through classes or via an access code. Teachers can watch their students' responses arrive in real time via the teacher dashboard, and teachers can send back grades (manually our automatically) and also send longer narrative responses in reply.

Select a video style, pick photos, videos, music, add text, and you're done.
You can import photos, videos from your computer or from the web. You can use photos from your Facebook, Dropbox, Picasa or Flickr accounts. You can even use your webcam to record.
Add a soundtrack by uploading a song or choosing one from our library. You can also add a voice-over file or use our computer voices that will read your text.
Then tell your story with text slides and captions on top of photos and videos.
