mysimpleshow is a Video-Creation Tool for Educators

Educators—are you flipping your classroom by using technology or e-learning tools in general? If so, we have the perfect tool for you . . . and not only is it quick, it’s free too!

mysimpleshow is a video-making tool that lets users create explainer videos in just a few minutes. The tool empowers simple explanation in a short amount of time and is of great help to educators and students alike. It is perfect for making a complex topic simple or introducing new subject matter.

Luckily, the tool’s benefits don’t stop there. mysimpleshow’s possibilities are plentiful. As traditional and online classrooms become more diverse, incorporating mixed media into lessons to support classroom strategies such as the flipped classroom ideology become easier with this tool. Using mysimpleshow aids in catering to different learning styles identified by the VARK model, as well as developing multiple types of knowledge.

Let’s take visual learners for example. mysimpleshow is perfect for this learning style because combining words and images is proven to be more memorable than using solely text. The cognitive association created when watching an educational explainer video is much stronger due to the images being used.

The tool also allows teachers to enhance their presentations with relevant video content, assign more enjoyable homework and in-class activities to students, explain common classroom procedures at the click of a button, or communicate messages to parents and other staff. Some teachers have used the tool as a video supplement to traditional book reports as well as lab reports.

We know what you’re thinking by now—“I’m an educator, I don’t have much time, how does it work?”

mysimpleshow was created with educators in mind as it is known that time is a luxury for teachers. It’s quick and easy to use because the tool provides clear structural guidelines in each of its many storyline templates, which range in subject areas so all teachers can utilize the tool. Storylines include explaining a law, explaining a historical event, introducing a biological process, and even presenting a CV. Storyline templates fall under educational, professional, and personal use; offering something for every user.

Once a storyline is selected and text is entered, the tool then visualizes your text automatically, but there are plenty of modification options. After you finalize your text and visuals, you end up with a professional video—with a voiceover!

There’s also a PowerPoint import feature, which is even quicker than choosing the storyline option. Using this feature, the tool extracts the most relevant information from your PowerPoint instead of prompting you to write something new, and visuals are then generated for you. You can still polish up and personalize your text and visuals using this option, of course!

No matter the topic at hand, mysimpleshow allows educators to tell a great story and explain important topics through an animated video in minutes. If you want to make a stellar video, try it out here.
