ScreenChomp is one of many great digital creation apps out there for students and teachers to use on the iPad.

Once you finish and stop the recording, you will immediately see a playback of what you just did.  You can do one of three things: (1) delete it, (2) save it to your iPad, (3) share it.  If you decide to share, you will get a web address that provides a directly link to your ScreenChomp creation.
