Starting today, you can caption all your ShowMe videos and give your content the polish it needs to reach everyone in your classroom.
ShowMe’s closed captions feature is a premium feature that is relevant to all ShowMe educators, including anything from the Kindergarten level to university instructors or professors. There are three main goals that this feature encompasses: helps to seamlessly add subtitles to online courses and meet the educational requirements, makes quality education even more accessible to students around the globe, and provides so many more benefits that improve your classroom experience.
ShowMe’s positive impact on your classroom is immediate and easy to see: students engage and take ownership over their content, your content can be divided up amongst different groups to facilitate focused learning, and the flipped classroom model ties everything together into a neat package. However, ShowMe’s indisputably most valuable asset is you.
As a classroom aid, one of many purposes of ShowMe is to provide an intuitive tool that helps make your teaching as simple and stress-free as possible. While creating presentations from within the ShowMe app is very convenient, until now it wasn’t always easy to take your work with you. Today, we are thrilled to announce our Google Drive full integration.
Google Classroom is an incredibly important tool for educators everywhere. The ability to organize and manage your classes in an online setting facilitates inclusivity while fostering an understanding and appreciation of technology for your students; unfortunately, it also means that your online teaching tools are often confined to your selected tool. While Google Classroom offers plenty of resources, ShowMe’s integrated Google Classroom support will help elevate your curriculum even further.
ShowMe is optimized from the ground up for mobile use, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t do plenty from your workstation. By accessing your ShowMe profile page from the ShowMe website, you can edit your profile, create courses and groups, view and edit your existing courses, and more. Any changes that you make will immediately carry over to the ShowMe app on your tablet.
While ShowMe’s main appeal is that is allows you to create and save your files within the app, there are times where you need to add an existing file—such as a photo—to your presentation. Advanced file-importing features are available for ShowMe Premium users, but your free account allows you to add or take photos as well as select a background for your ShowMe.
ShowMe isn’t just a whiteboard app; it’s also a social hub for teachers, as well as a compendium of your saved assignments and groups. From within the ShowMe app, you can create an assignment, post it to your profile, check in with local educators, and view your current courses—all in a few seconds!
ShowMes take two main forms: slide presentations, and video presentations. Slides consist of static images with written or drawn content, while video presentations allow you to narrate your drawn or written actions while performing them. Both of these options are available for use with your free ShowMe account, along with the ability to save up to 15 minutes’ worth of ShowMes.
Good organizational skills are crucial in any classroom setting—both for you and for your students. With ShowMe Premium’s Courses feature, you can keep your content organized and tidy on a class-by-class, year-by-year basis.
While sharing your ShowMes publicly is perfectly safe, there may come a time when you would rather share a ShowMe only with one student or group—or even keep the entire lesson to yourself. With ShowMe Premium, you can do just that.
