Westville High School senior Bailey Bruner asks viewers for help choosing a major next year.

As a follow-up to our post on how teachers are using Touchcast, here’s an example of how students are using Touchcast from Westville High School in Oklahoma: to create interactive welcome videos! Touchcast is a free iOS app where users can create interactive videos including linked websites, live polls, images and other videos. You can view and share your videos on a channel on your iOS tablet, or online with a conventional web browser.

Three of our favorites: Bailey Bruner (above) conducting a poll on what she should major in next year, Nick Hamilton (below) sharing his favorite music right in the browser, and Torrii Crittenden discussing an inspirational quote that motivates her love of softball.

What do your students want to share about themselves?
