Khan Academy is a free website that hosts thousands of video lessons ranging from first-grade math to college world history. The videos feature drawings on an electronic blackboard with teacher commentary about the material being taught, similar to the style of a lecture.
But what if you want to create your own lesson video to share with students that showcases your artful notes and golden teaching voice?
Rocketbook Snapcast has you covered.
These are good questions. Snapcast is a feature in the Rocketbook app that allows you to share any notebook page or whiteboard with remote students. It’s like a website that immediately updates with new content any time you take a photo of your notes! (Actually, that’s exactly what it is). Learn more about what Snapcast is or how to enter Snapcast mode in the Rocketbook app from our help center.
Later in this blog post, we offer some use cases where you might find Snapcast useful, but first, we’re covering the instructions on how to use Snapcast to create a video lesson. It’s a little boring, but it’s massively important. Scan in Snapcast mode, open the Snapcast URL on your computer, then record your audio and your screen. You will then have a saved video of your handwritten notes with audio commentary for students to follow along.
In case you can’t think of why this would be useful for you, here’s some situations where using Snapcast to create a Khan Academy style video will help you share lessons with your students:
