  • Great

    by William Angel

    It is a great app. The problem is you can not save your work for latter, and you can only save it as read-only

  • Great!!!

    by Manytrees2

    This is a great app. I use it to teach some math lessons to my online students.

  • Echo while recording using airplay

    by Phaz30

    I used this app often until I started to get a bad echo when recording using airplay. Educreations says it's an Apple problem and offer no support except a "maybe they will fix it with the next ios upgrade". I want to use Educreations again, but find it impossible with the echo issue. Please fix.

  • Okay

    by Hacloer

    I'm a student, and my social studies teacher wants us to make a presentation on chapter 11. She later found out we can't save our work! We have more homework, we now have to make power points all the time, if it we were able to save and edit our work this app would be the best!

  • Great app

    by Still miffed

    Very useful & easy to use!

  • So helpful

    by Mathgirl3.14

    I've been creating mini-lectures for students who need the extra instruction, and since I've started posting them online, my students won't stop asking for more! It really helps absent students as well as those who can't focus well in class. It's also great for parents so that they can help their child with homework. This is easily my favorite educational app - thank you!!

  • Nerd

    by Hhfyjjhhuiiasdddw

    I love school and you

  • Great app for this teacher!

    by Professorpost

    I have used Educreations for more than 2 1/2 years. It helps me to connect with my online students as well as the face to face classes.

  • Beyond helpful!

    by Jacrolfe

    I started using educreations last year with my 8th grade Algebra 1 class. I had students at varied levels so I decided to start recording my lessons. I got a cable to connect my iPad to the projector to record my lessons everyday and putting them up for my students to review from home as needed. They later later realized that when they were absent they could watch videos from home before they came back to school. I realized Educreations was a great tool, so I started recording my lessons the day before class. Ever since, my students have been able to come prepared for class, having a basic understanding of the lesson concepts being taught and we have required a lot less time to master concepts that took a long time in the past.

  • Educreations rocks

    by Thisisdumb2

    I love this app. It's easy to use. It's user friendly. It's high quality. I have moved to online teaching and this is a life saver. The only reason it didn't get 5 stars is you can't edit your video. It's either redo from the beginning or you are stuck with an error. It would be nice to be able to do more finessing. But overall, a great product!

  • Love it

    by Chiver101

    I use this app every day in my classroom. I also appreciate how responsive the designers are to suggestions.

  • So easy and effective!

    by MathTeacher87

    This app is very user friendly and makes flipping easy! Teachers looking to try a flipped classroom should definitely use this app. I've used several whiteboard screen casting apps, but this is by far the best.

  • Keeps getting better and better

    by 129755

    Really love the new eraser and page scroll tools. I am a college professor and I use this extensively for delivery of supporting materials...sort of like having office hours for the entire class. Probably one of the best e-learning tools out there.

  • A simple way to engage students!

    by yellow_pineapple

    With Educreations, I have started to create my own math videos. It's so easy and yet the clips come out so clear and easy for students to follow. I am also really excited to use Educreations with students and let them design videos to show their learning!

  • Use it everyday!


    I use this app everyday. Great app for teaching

  • Love it

    by Daddaman3

    This app is great! My teacher used it to explain the notes we were taking when we had a snow day and it was great.

  • Really Great, even though I'm not a teacher

    by Japanesemath

    I use this app to demonstrate anything that I can think of: tutoring kids, taking notes, home improvement projects, etc. I am not a teacher but it is great. I love being able to record my session.

  • Very useful

    by Metria15

    I use it in my classroom frequently. User friendly interface and the students like it also.

    This app is so helpful with school work

  • Horrible

    by C00kieAddict

    Needs option to edit audio during recording

  • Best app ever!

    by rstet1

    ...especially for teaching. It lets you get your points across in the best way possible, allowing you to speak and write without any restrictions. I enjoy using it!

  • OMG

    by Lizzyrizk0328

    This game is awesome I love it because you get to make slide shows about whatever you want !!!

  • Educreations

    by DEMusicGal16

    I think Educreations is a great app! It's a great substitute for PowerPoint! Because PowerPoint can't be on the iPad, Educreations can be the exact same thing!

  • Use it all the time

    by HuskerXDM

    I use this app every day teaching math. Kids love it. Easy to use.

  • Quick and easy

    by jmcrenglish

    Love it! A quick and easy app that allows me to pull pics from the net and organize lessons for my flipped or differentiated classroom. Also, it's easy to share with my PLC for new teachers learning content. Middle schoolers can use to create comprehension lessons for themselves and for others.

  • Great app!!

    by Clairedoubleu

    Love this app. Has many many uses in my special ed classroom. Easy, quick way to modify a lesson, provide visuals, or help a student work through an assignment or idea, visually. The add picture feature is great it allows for pictures to be easily resized, rotated and locked to avoid unwanted movement. I also love that a picture can be added straight from the web! Awesome app!


    by Chilesslp

    I use this app the most of any others. I would recommend to anyone.

  • Deletes work and picture choices now awful!!!

    by Jaylew1987

    I used to love this app but it delete my notes while I was trying to get a more useful image using another app. It's supposed to still be running in the background. NOT USING anymore

  • Awesome app

    by etomi57

    Simple and easy app for creating videos. Just what I've been looking for.

  • Not good

    by Zachco

    It doesn't let u. Change ur mistakes. Bad app

  • Helpful app!

    by Cutiepahtootie!

    Great app! Would be better if you could edit after you post.

  • Mr.

    by Justin Chramosta

    Very nice to help catch up sick kids by posting math videos on my website

  • Very helpful

    by Chem-student

    Great app, but really needs longer recording time and the ability to go back through the pages without rewinding the recording.

  • Like it but needs improvements

    by Gabriela Paz

    I really like this app. I think my students will also like using it. I just need to be able to edit my lessons and recordings. I look forward to give you a 5 star!

  • Great app for flipping the classroom

    by CrossDaddy

    I use Educreations in my flipped Algebra 2 class and it works really well! I like the way is syncs with Dropbox which allows me to insert graphics in the presentations. The video quality is very good and it's simple to link the videos to my class website...a great tool!

  • I love it but

    by Poptropica is awsome

    I love it its awesome. Only one thing you should make this app available for the i phones and i touches

  • No edit or save to camera roll

    by Yogity

    Needs an editing feature. Needs to allow you to save to camera roll. That makes this great app just ok.

  • Favorite App

    by Lllsmith

    Educreations is the best app that I use in my 5th grade classroom. I can create or use lessons that have already been created by other educators. Students love showing what they know and sharing reports with classmates or at home with their families. My fifth graders love learning with Educreations.

  • Love this app!

    by al4405

    I use this app every single day! I use it to make all of my Calculus and Precalculus videos. I flipped my classroom and no longer teach during class. My students watch my videos that I make using this app at home and come to school to work on their assignments. I highly recommend this to every teacher. I chose this app to make videos because it was easy to use and it saved much quicker than other similar apps. I only wish I could go back and edit my videos instead of starting over.

  • Awful app

    by Russplane

    This is the worst app ever don't get it. I had to do a reading project on it and I did a 20 slide thing and it deleted it so I got a 0% on it. Now I can't get into Middle School

  • Great

    by LHagstrom

    Great app

  • Techno Teacher

    by 50 & feeling it!

    Love this app! How better to capture the minds and attention of students who live in the age of modern technology!

  • Best App To Teach On!

    by Karissa Hiegel

    Best app 2⃣ teach on!

  • I like it a lot because you can combine photos to make a cologhn

    by Askaates1

    I like it a lot

  • Kid friendly and awesome

    by Annabanana925

    This app is awesome. I made some really awesome videos. I also feel like this and bContext are very similar, but this is better; it's a whole lot more kid friendly.

  • Nice...very nice

    by Eccoly

    It's an ok app, kind of frustrating though because if you mess up you have to start all over again. Overall it is a really nice app.

  • Great App

    by Moi pour toi

    An absolutely fantastic app, I love it and so do my kindergarten students. Those folks that have a problem with the app, need to make sure they know how to use all the features correctly and understand their iPad,instead of rating the app as useless and awful.

  • Helpful.

    by fissiksman

    My lower level kids have shown 10 to 20 point improvement on their last few tests since I've been using this. They can play problems over and over until they really understand it.

  • Good

    by human#

    Needs more colors and you should be able to e-mail what you make.Pretty Good

  • Useful in classroom

    by Miss V14

    I use this app everyday in the classroom. The students love the playback after the lesson.

  • It's ok

    by Ethan cox 1234567890

    But can't save to camera roll

  • Love love love it!!!

    by Harry Potter lover 7

    This app is great even if ur not a teacher or teach at all! Great for nerds like me....just wish there were stamps.... But over all love it

  • AMAZING APP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    by JTWashington

    I love this app, it's amazing. It is very resourceful and very helpful. I'm in 7th grade and I bring my I pad to school and I record my teacher's voice while I do the same math she's doing on the board. You can color code things and I'm very organized so it really helps to see how to do the problem on the screen and to identify things on there easily. LOVE IT, SO WORTH DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ps

  • by Luttman

    I don't understand why we need this


    by Haxor!

    Cannot scroll or edit text boxes taller than the page. Also multitasking is not supported. HAX!

  • Deleted All My Work

    by Bayonate

    Does not allow you to use other apps while you are working. It deleted all my work and now I have to start over. The built-in engine that searches images for you is terrible. Does not give any useful images. Have to create separate boxes to have different size text. This app will cause frustration and will consume your time. If you get your project deleted, then it will consume more of your time.

  • Keeps dropping presentations

    by K-5 art awesomeness

    I have a lengthy presentation I want to do - I have build it twice... Then it disappears. Gone. Please make a way to save projects while working.

  • Easy to use!

    by meggles1234

    Love the simple, clean design of the app! I love being able to create quick on the spot videos and easily share them!!

  • Update needed

    by Ccalvarese

    Please update! It keeps deleting all of my work even though I never hit the done button. I would also like to see the ability to rerecord the last thing you said. Sometimes if I mess up I would like to go back a few seconds and redo it the right way. Please give us a way to save and then continue our work at a later time or edit lessons.

  • No control

    by doddsey55

    Cannot edit once you've saved, and I have LOST entire slide shows without being able to get them back. Disappointing to put in all that effort with NO results. Give me some control, and I would love to use this app - but not now. Waste of my time.

  • Great app

    by FC Barcelona .

    Really helps studying.

  • This teacher loves it!

    by Cole are

    This app is awesome for making mini tutorials for my students. Students and parents alike have found them very useful. It is a great app!

  • Great for student review and differentiation

    by Wise Huys

    It works great for students who need a little extra, they can review the lesson as needed.

  • Awesome

    by KEEPCALM123

    This app is awesome because I use it for school. It really helps me with math. You should get this app!!!

  • Great

    by Odakuzhal

    Educreations is not just for schools, but also for universities, and research institutions.

  • A great teaching tool!

    by Lisawrites

    I love how easy it is to create a narrated presentation. I'm hopeful in the future there will be a way to save the slides in case the recording needs revision. Still it's a great application.

  • UGH

    by JaceeJaneZ

    We can't save it to the camera roll! It'll be one star until you FIX THIS.

  • Awesome ,earning technice!

    by SimsKidderDanny

    I'm a sixth grade student and my teacher teaches on here. It makes her voice clear, and now I can understand her and get help from home.

  • Amazing!!!

    by Beccag315

    This app is great for making tutorials for your students. It acts just like a smart board. You can even use a coordinate grid, lined paper, writing, and typing:) I totally recommend this app!

  • Mr. A

    by Focusgt200

    I absolutely love this app. Great tool for review and condensing main points of a lesson! Two thumbs up!!

  • Great

    by Jb lover liker

    I love this app so much but I have one problem I don't no how to save it to camera roll other then that it is an awesome app

  • Great for Reteaching Lessons

    by Angie Mac

    I love that this app allows me to work math problems for my students!!!! Best EVER! They also create their own video tutorials!

  • Easy to use but...

    by Missbean46

    It REALLY needs to have a SAVE feature!!!! I use it all the time, and the few times it has crashed & I've lost all my work I was really frustrated. Also it should allow us to edit recording per slide. I don't know how many times I've messed up in the middle of a lesson & can't redo it without going back to the beginning. Add those 2 features and I would give it 5 stars.

  • Great App

    by San Rafael rat

    Love this app. It is easy to use.

  • This app lacks the most obvious features

    by Jman1234567891

    This app seems to have the inability to save anything for more than 30 seconds. Why would it do this? I don't know. I consistently spend hours on projects only to have my progress lost when I so much as swipe to another app for seconds. Why they do not have a prominently placed save button or auto-save feature I just don't know.

  • Great app!!

    by Clairedoubleu

    Love using this in my special ed classroom!
