    We have just added apple tv and are finding that Educreations drops Airplay everytime we try to record. When you stop recording it starts working again.
    We LOVE your app and need to figure out how to make this work. Any tips or suggestions for us?

    It also happens on the Sock Puppet app.
    • Educreations - There's an Apple iOS7 bug that is still causing issues when recording while using Airplay. Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do about it. We're waiting for Apple to fix it.

    How do I export my lessons to my youtube channel?

    Here is a link to a student - produced Educreation when given the challenge of explaining with animation the procedure of somatic cell nuclear transfer in under 1 minute.

    Here are some Educreations guidelines my class came up with:

    How to Make a GREAT Educreations Video:

    ➢ Give the video a title related to the content.
    ➢ Talk loudly enough.
    ➢ Talk at a good speed … not too fast, not too slow.
    ➢ Try to avoid saying a lot of "ums" and "uhs.”
    ➢ Write nicely formed numbers and words. Remember, you can hit back arrow, and redo anything. Also, you can type, too.
    ➢ Always explain what you’re doing and thinking as you work out the problem. Use the vocabulary and terms that we use in class.
    ➢ Have fun and use vocal variety (expression). Have some personality when teaching your peers.
    ➢ Stick to the topic.
    ➢ Start by telling the audience what you're going to be teaching them! Introduce your topic!
    ➢ It’s okay to make mistakes in your video … just be sure to explain how you figured out where you went wrong, and how to do it the right way.
    ➢ PRACTICE first before recording! ☺

    • Mrs. Harvey - Thank your class - this will help my 4th graders who are starting to use this, and some tips will work for iMovie as well.

    Hello, we need some help grading short answer questions, do you know of any program or app out there that could identify key words or phrases on short answer responses of at least 300 characters?
    (I know neither flubaroo (only grades one-word answers) or edmodo quizzes do this)
    I know I can do up to 140 characters using my student response system (Qwizdom) but wanted to know if there was anything else out there, more type efficient and with at least 300 characters. Thanks!

    Is there a way to have students upload a video or lesson they make from Educreations to Edmodo directly? I'd assume they can send it to their Gmail and then upload it, but I was hoping for something a bit more direct.
    • Mr. Bruder - Once the lesson has been saved in Educreations, you can then use the embed code available to include it in an Edmodo post.

      • Mar 4, 2014
    • Mrs. Woloszyn - Thanks, I found it!

    Hi! Is there a way to edit lessons? I want students to be able to create lessons over a couple days, not just in one sitting.
    • Ms. McLean - Its not made for that. I had my students create their Slides on paper first. Then create their slide in educreations then take a screen shot of them. This way if they are able to finish recording starting over will only mean re-recording as opposed to starting from scratch.

    Hello!

    I have a few students that are getting a ‘404 restricted’ notice when we try to view their video. They posted a Kidblog post with the link. It’s only a few students which is why I’m confused. Any idea why this is occurring?

    Thanks for any help!
    • Mrs. Linder - It just might be the way that they put the privacy of the video. If it is restricted then you'll receive that 404 notice. It just happened to one of my teachers who needed to share a video with the entire school. She had it marked private. Hope that helps!

    Here is cool new tool that you could use to share your Educreations videos. It is LiveSlide and you can sign up for a free account here: https://atlaslearning.net Here are some videos that show what it does.

    Looking for how others are organizing their educreations. We share iPad carts so we can't have individual student accounts logging in/out especially at K-2. So the teacher logs in to the iPads she has for the day. All videos are saved under her account. We share the links in edmodo. But, by semester the account is so full and you hate to erase them. Will there be a way to download the files to store/archive? Any ideas on managing non- 1-1 environments?
    • Mrs. Johnston - So you have your Educreations account and then a class account? I have no problem with the sharing on Edmodo....it is the saving/storing in Educreations itself. You have to sync the iPad to an Educreations account.

      • Ms. Spear - I have my students grouped on educreations. assigning by groups helps keep it separated according to the class it is for. I teach middle school, so I have videos for 6 different groups of students. I imagine it would be similar to do if the groups were by teacher instead of period. I will look into this and report back

        • Jan 16, 2014
      • Mrs. Johnston - So what email do you use for each group when you create the account? Is this on an iPad? You know how you have to login to the account on the ipad so they save to the account.

    First off, thank you to all who answer questions so quickly. I am so new to all this technology. I have created a class with a code. My students are diligently working on their projects. How do they upload them to the class, and how will we share these? Thanks again
    • Mrs. Johnston - When you finish and save on Educreations look for the copy link (looks like a chain link) or the Share button. I have our kids copy link and post it to our Edmodo group. You can also make a small group in Edmodo called whatever the Unit was and have the kids post to that small group, then you don't have so much on your main page. The presentations have its own little home for kids to log on and share with parents at home.

    • Mr. Salvucci - Mrs. Moore,
      A colleague of mine answered your question with this:
      "Once you've created the course and they've published them they can be viewed online by both you and the students either on a laptop when you sign in or on their account when they sign in."

    Hello, my second and third graders are beginning to create projects showing what they have learned. Has anyone created rubrics for grading Educreations slide projects? Or does anyone know where I view, share and create templates for my own rubrics?
  • Mrs. Moore's avatar
    I am very new at Educreations, can you save and edit on this app? I have my high school seniors researching a specific issue on Mars colonization and want them to create lessons for their fellow students to view. I did set up a specific classroom with a code. This is not a single class period task. How is this accomplished please? Thank you
    • Mrs. Moore - One of my students came up with the same idea. But do they lose recording? Thanks

      • Ms. Alvarado-Gonzalez - Yes. My students had to do the recording all in one day.

        • Dec 6, 2013
      • Mr. Orme - Screen shots are the best way to save the visual stuff but they will have to re-record which can get annoying.

      • Mrs. Grizzard - Hi, is there any way to save educreations lessons into the Edmodo backpack? My students need to save the lessons we have been working on. Thank you.

        • Dec 6, 2013
      • Mrs. Yakes - I have my students email their lessons to me. I also have them logged in to my account so that all of their educreations come to my account.
        I don't think there is a way to save them to the Edmodo backpack, but I could be wrong.

        • Dec 6, 2013
    • Mrs. Grizzard - thank you, i will try both suggestions.

    Is there a way for students to share work with the wider world without having their names attached to it? When my students submit links to their work I can see their name and profile pic even if I am not logged in to educreations. Is there no way to share anonymously?
    • Educreations - Mr. Hilton - All student-created videos are saved privately on Educreations. You cannot view these videos without being logged in. The only exception to this rule is if the student chooses to share the private link to their video. We're continuing to work on improvements to allow students to safely share their work online, but we have to be very careful about how we enable this. Glad to chat about it further if you have questions, just email support.

    Is there a way to upload Educreation on YouTube? This would be a very important function. We have experienced an issue when trying to show student work, but the student deleted their screencast so the link no longer works.

    I appreciate any feedback you might have to offer.

    Thanks!

    Joyce
    • Mrs. Pereira - Thanks for all the responses!
      It would be great if Educreations could have the screencast saved to "Camera Roll" on the iPad. Hopefully this is something that can be looked into.
      Thanks again!

      • Mr. Zdrojewski (Amherst) - You could use the Explain Everything app ($3) if you want capability to save to camera roll, just a thought!

        • Nov 26, 2013
      • Mrs. Pereira - Thank you Mr. Zdrojewski! I love that app!

      • Mr. Ramirez - Hey All,

        Just wanted to see how teachers are incorporating Educreations into the classroom. Right now I am just having students make math videos, and post them to their student accounts, but I know there are a lot better ways to utilize Educreations. What are some suggestions? Thank you in advance!

        • Nov 8, 2013
      • Mrs. Pereira - Students can create EDUcreations to explain Enduring Understandings, key concepts and ideas for units. It helps them review and get the "Big Picture".

        • Nov 8, 2013
      • Mr. Griffin - I use it math/physics when I make my answer key. I post links to each problem (the longer ones) so that I don't have to spend class time going over a problem that only half (which is still a lot) got wrong. Helps the students be more involved in their assessments (corrections are required) and it keeps me moving through my pacing plan.

        • Nov 9, 2013
    • Mr. Pineault - IN MATH :
      - I create Video Lessons for my students to help them reviewing at home.
      - I also ask students to create videos in teams to show different ways of solving math problems (to explain their strategies)
      - I create Guided Video Lessons in which I explain the theory and ask them questions (within the video) for them to solve in order to practice what they have learnt.

      • Mr. Halterman - Is there a way to link your lesson directly to Edmodo, just as you would with Facebook?

        • Oct 30, 2013
      • Mr. Stelson - depends on the format...

        • Oct 30, 2013
      • Educreations - Not at this time. You'll need to copy and paste the embed link or lesson link into Edmodo.
