Note and Explain Alpha

A Java-based application that comes in handy during presentations, enabling you to use it as a digital notebook to explain certain principles to your audience
Note and Explain is a cross-platform application that can be used during presentations or lessons to provide visual support for explanations, in the attempt to have all your ideas get through to the target audience.

A practical virtual blackboard

The application has multiple practical uses: it can act as a virtual blackboard for teachers, enabling the latter to show handwritten explanations to their students or it can play the role of a note taking application. Alternatively, it can be used as a simple drawing tool for children to have fun with, also providing an option to save the drawings in PNG format.

Focusing on simplicity and ease of use, Note and Explain displays a simple interface with accessible options. The drawing toolbox is displayed in the lower side of the main window, where you can easily choose the desired pencil color, select the eraser or the highlighter.

Multi-tabbed interface and rich drawing toolbox

One worth-mentioning feature is that Note and Explain can open multiple notes simultaneously, in different tabs. This way, you don't have to waste time erasing previously written explanations, but simply switch to a blank sheet to go to the next topic.

The toolbox includes pencils of all colors and even a rainbow color drawing tool. The pencil thickness can be easily customized and the grid can be re-drawn with the push of a button. Thanks to the highlighter tool, you can easily point out important things on your board.

A handy tool for presentations and drawing creation

Note and Explain is a practical application that can find its purpose in anyone's toolbox. Whether you are holding a presentation or simply want to get an alternative to Paint, this application can be of help.
