Be a News Reporter with the I Can Present iPad App

Kudlian software have released an iOS version of I Can Present, their popular presentation software. The app allows students to write and edit their own teleprompter script and record video as they read it out. The app is available for all iPads and iPods and will soon be available for Android devices.

I Can Present can be used in three different modes including video only, video and script and script only. The split screen mode allows users to hold the iOS device, and record footage whilst still being able to read the script for a flawless performance. You can switch between the front and rear cameras – so you can either act as a presenter speaking to the camera or a narrator of something else.

With the teleprompter mode on, it looks something like this :

The app saves the video to your camera roll – so you can then do other things with it afterwards, such as export to YouTube or edit in other software such as the desktop version of I Can Present. You can preview your recorded video inside the app.

The app has a number of cross-curricular applications for all age groups. They could present items from history as news reports, or present the results of a science experiment or speak “live from the scene” on a field trip or school visit.

The teleprompter features are very nice, but I’d like to see the app do a little more for your money. Being able to load up pre-recorded videos for narration would be good – as would being able to make a photoslide show for narration. Green screen features would be welcome too. Hopefully these features can be added in future updates.

The I Can Present app costs £1.99 and you can download it here.
