Which Plan is for me?
Here are couple of activity and position descriptions that show how Explain Everything is used in certain scenarios.
I’m a private tutor and I have a group of students that I want to work with
Choose the Pro plan. If you know that you will share many projects or videos and invite your students to your projects to connect on a whiteboard it gives you more cloud storage space and allows you to invite anyone to your projects.
Students don’t have to necessarily have accounts if you don’t need them to work independently on projects (like assignments or homework). Find out more in the FAQ
I’m a teacher and I'd like my students to be able to present their understanding with a whiteboard presentation or video
Choose the Class plan. It will allow you to give 100 students access to Explain Everything and them to create their own content whether it be a video or a live whiteboard presentation. It will also allow you to connect with them on their project in case they need help or as a form of assessment. They won't be able to share that content outside your group to protect their privacy.
Learn how you can distribute the licenses to your students.
I’m a lecturer and need this software to present and create materials
Choose the Solo Teacher plan. If you'd like to share your powerful multimedia whiteboard on a classroom screen the Solo Teacher lets you do exactly that. It also lets you create videos and materials with no limits. You can later upload them external clouds or streaming video sites like YouTube.
If you’re going to create a lot of videos and share them as Web Video Links, you may need more cloud storage space. You can easily upgrade your Explain Drive storage. Learn more about what you can do if you’re running out of space on Explain Drive.
I run for-profit educational institution and need to provide digital whiteboards to my partners or employees
If you run a for-profit organization, the Team plan will be right for you. The Education plans were created with teachers and institutions with school budgets in mind.
I/we will mostly work online
I/we will mostly work in a group
This means that you will need more space in the Explain Drive cloud and cannot be limited by collaboration time and participant limit. Go for the Pro or Team plan. They feature 20GB cloud storage per member and no time limit on collaborations.
I want to create videos and upload them on YouTube for educational purposes
The Solo Teacher plan is right for you. It allows you to create as many projects as you need and it doesn't limit your recording time.
Frequently Asked Questions: Explain Everything Plans
Here are some answers to the most common questions we get that may help you pick a plan that's right for you.
Does everyone need an account to collaborate?
On Education Plans – yes. On these plans the content can be shared only within the organization. Additionally, Student accounts can only share projects only with Teachers. This is in order to protect student privacy.
For Pro and Team plans we recommend creating accounts for everyone, but it's not required. Users with no accounts will still be able to collaborate. However, there is one limitation: the project owner needs to be in the project for them to join. In other words, they won't be able to work independently.
Does everyone need an account to watch my videos?
On Class and School plans – yes. On these plans the content can be shared only within the organization. Additionally, Student accounts can only share videos only with Teachers. This is in order to protect student privacy.
For Free, Solo Teacher, Pro, and Team plans viewing content created in Explain Everything does not require an account or subscription.

Yes, you can add more users at any point during your subscription. You’ll be charged a prorated fee for adding new users. See more details.
