Primary Use:

Coach's Eye lets you record or import videos directly into your device and review them. Viewers can zoom and pan videos, use slow-motion playback, and annotate the video with drawing tools. The ability to add audio commentary in addition to the annotations makes this app very useful.

This app lets you show students/athletes an analysis of their performance and/or provide them with an easy to use tool to record and analyze their own videos. Because the video can be shown directly on the device, it allows teachers and coaches to provide immediate feedback to correct a tennis serve, refine soccer passing, review a created dance, or demonstrate how a specific skill should be performed.

Teachers can record demonstrations for the use of students/athletes and display them with a projector or on a TV.

How App is used in classroom/gym:


In physical education classes, teachers can video their students and analyze their performance or have students analyze their own or peer performances.

It could be incorporated into a station or provide an option for non-participating students to participate by videoing and analyzing peers' performance.

Students can video their own performance and analyze it using coach's eye for homework.

This app is also handy for assessment. Students can use the app to add to their eportfolios.

Not just for coaching, this app gives teachers a way to video performances, annotate them, record a commentary, and display them on a device, through a projector or TV.
