What is 30Hands

30Hands is a fun storytelling app that allows students, teachers and anyone with creativity to easily create stories or presentations based on photos, images or slides using an iPad or other device. You can create great presentations and stories in a short amount of time.

Do we have access to the program?

There is a free app and it is in the app portal. You can access the videos in an online community The 30hands Community. There is a paid version that offers a lot more bells and whistles.

Is this on the computer or iPad?

Videos have to be created on the iPad but can be accessed from the computer. You can create a class on the computer and join an online community.

In addition to content on the computer, you can use the eClassroom to collaborate with your students and make your assignment process much easier.
