EDUTECH TIPS - Epic Pens

Epic Pen - Annotation Has Never Been Easier!

What is it?

Have you been in a situation where you just needed to draw an arrow to something on your screen but you had to take a screenshot and export the image to an image-editing software just to add/draw the arrow?

Epic Pen is an easy-to-use and one of the simplest annotation tools available for free (there’s a premium plan too but the free plan seems to meet most immediate needs!) Now that most of us are either working or learning from home, the act of literally pointing to something on your screen may not be possible. 

With Epic Pen, you can draw, write and highlight directly over most Windows desktop applications, including presentation software, webpages, videos, creative studios and even games. So if you need to annotate something, either to explain yourself better, or to get help to troubleshoot, or to even make quick marking / notes, Epic Pen can be the tool you can turn to!

Where is it available?

Epic Pen is available for download at :

epic-pen.com

However, it is currently available only for Windows OS.
