TouchCast is an amazing new tool that is perfect for creating instructional videos. You can create videos on your iPad or Windows computer (Mac version coming soon!). The great thing about TouchCast is the ability to make your video interactive...and I mean truly interactive. When you create your video you add apps like YouTube, poll question, etc. Viewers can click on those items during your video and see live content as your video continues to play. You have to watch the demo video below. It really is awesome!
