Explain EDU is a version of our whiteboard for iPad and iPhone where creations are saved locally on the device. It does not include dedicated cloud storage or online collaboration.

Explain EDU was designed for schools with iOS-only deployments. It is also intended for those who may need to exclusively purchase it via Apple's Volume Purchase Program (VPP), those with internet access challenges, or both.

Our other app on the App Store, Explain Everything Whiteboard, is our full-featured platform. It includes cloud-based video conversion, web video links, and online collaboration as well as the experiences included in Explain EDU.

To try Explain Everything Whiteboard for free, please search for it on the App Store or use this link:

The differences between the two versions are explained here:

Explain EDU is featured by Apple on the Teaching Tools site: and has easy integration with Apple Schoolwork.

Explain EDU infinite-touch canvas, zoom, and mix recording is an unreal experience that you have to try to believe. Explain EDU is optimized for iPad, Apple Pencil, and transforming your imagination for what is possible with mobile devices.

You don’t have to be creative to express your ideas creatively. Capture every experience by inserting, including Drag and Drop, all the media you need to tell your story: images, websites, videos, PDF & PPT files, and more. Immediately record and share authentic moments as stories.

Share to anyone, anywhere, what is most compelling for your audience and inspire them from GIF to MP4 to YouTube and more.

What’s New

Version 6.0.2

• Improved and more intuitive drawing and annotating. From now on, drawings will turn into separate, movable objects when the space between the drawn lines is big enough. When drawings are close to each other, they will group, but can be manually ungrouped so you can move them separately.
• Most notifications and alerts have been rewritten so they’re easier to understand, and they also feature a brand new visual style.
• The new “Guides” section on the Home Screen now features free templates with step-by-step instructions for you to download right from the app.
• We’ve removed some pesky errors that used to appear when launching Explain Everything via external links. It is now more seamless.
• Objects set as the background now have the same set of actions available in the Inspector as when they’re not in the background.
• Numerous other small issues have been sent to the nether realm ;)

Editors’ Notes

A terrific interactive whiteboard and screencasting app, Explain Everything is perfect for making instructional videos that clearly demonstrate concepts. Annotate, manipulate, and add narration to documents, photos, and videos, creating visual presentations you can easily share. Instructors can use this powerful app to explain everything from math equations to football plays, or they can task students with producing their own projects to show to the class.

What an absolutely wonderful app/program! This developer did an amazing job developing a program that answers all the needs of professionals, teachers, and students!
TAKE THE TIME TO WATCH THE VIDEOS that the developer has created to teach you how to use the app. Like any great tool, you must put the time into learning how to use that tool. I’m still watching videos and every time I use this app, I’m learning new gems hidden inside!!!
To the Developer: Thank you for your creation! It has allowed me to improve the productivity and revenue of my business drastically. I’m looking forward to all your new updates and new products that you may create in the future!

A little confusing, poor playback options

I have tried many different apps for this purpose. I’ve noticed that while using this app, when I change the color of one slide it can change the color of all the others. Conversely, I’ll change the color and nothing will happen to the slide I’m on. My main complaint with this app is the inability to watch at 1.25 or 1.5 speed. This is rather frustrating, I don’t need to watch my video at eight times speed. I’m a medical student who uses this for my own review videos, not to be shared with others, but it’s still very difficult to edit the speed of the video after the fact.
