We wanted a quick and easy way to film and upload teaching videos without having to deal with flip cameras and annoying video compression issues.

Product Use: We purchased an account for all instructional staff at Brooke and asked all staff to download the app to their phones. We also asked all staff to share all of their videos with the entire network. Now, we have a library of over 1000 videos that principals and teachers can use for professional development.

What Worked and What Didn't: The ease of uploading and sharing videos is really amazing. The customer support at Torsh is also really fantastic. Honestly, we haven't encountered anything that hasn't worked.

I used this product through the Hollyhock Fellowship to record classroom video. After a few months, I began to use the product more extensively, approximately every other week, to record a particular instructional routine I was working on. I wouldn't describe it as a "problem," but this product allowed me to more critically analyze, monitor, and improve my practice.

Product Use: I would record myself teaching at least twice per month, analyze the video on the Torsh platform, and creating action steps for myself to move my instruction forward.

What Worked and What Didn't: The time-synced comments are fantastic. The platform is very straight forward, so it allows for easy access to your own videos and minimal challenges with uploading additional resources.
