Excellent Assistive Technology Tool

Assistive J

I work in the assistive technology department of a very large school district and have found this app to be an excellent tool to support students and staff with technology. With only 3 AT consultants to cover over 90 schools, offering good support is challenging. Making these "tutorials" is super easy and open ended so I'm able to use it for a variety of purposes. It is intuitive, user friendly and very easy to use the end result. Folks I support have high praise for having a personalized tool to access whenever they need it. This will always be a tool in my AT toolbox!

I had the worst experience.....

I was working on a project for Spanish due the next day and I had to do voice overs on this app specifically for some reason. Each slide took many different recordings to finish and if I messed one take up, I had to start over the slide. And after working and translating for an hour the app shut off and when I re opened it it said all recordings were lost. I about threw my iPad at the wall because I wasted an hour and I had to be up for another 40 minutes finishing it. I had used it before and it was ok and useful but this experience made me want to write this review. Just use iMovie.

Excellent Teaching Tool!

I use this app to improve the speaking skills of my English as a Second Language Students. They get so excited when we produce our mini-movies. More importantly, they are engaged in learning in a fun way. Love this!
