A Sketching and Annotating Tool for Learners



Clarisketch - http://www.clarisketch.com/ - is an interesting app that enables educators and or learners to create animated sketches by combining speech, drawing and photos.

As educators, Clarisketch can be used to…

·        create flipped classroom videos,
·        explain a complex process
·        illustrate a given topic using both annotated commentary and recorded audio.
·        walk learners through explanations using features such as…
o    highlights, drawings and audio prompts.

There are three ways to create an animated sketch on Clasrisketch

1.   grab a photo using a smart phone or tablet camera ,

2.   import a photo from your photo library, or use a blank canvas.

3.   annotate the image by
a.   drawing on it,
b.   adding lines and shapes,
c.   highlighting specific parts,
…while recording your voice as you work.

The finished product is a screen recording of your sketch which you can then share with others via…
·        email,
·        Facebook,
·        Google+,
·        Twitter and/or other social networks.

"The shared sketch can be played in any browser and without the receivers having to install Clarisketch."
