From Roger Hobbs, Creative Services Manager in the Office for Online Learning:

Hi all,
This is not a free tool offered by the University, but it may be useful to some instructors. Switcher Studio is an iOS-based app which allows you to use one or multiple camera angles using the built-in cameras in iPhones or iPads (note: the app is exclusively iOS). There are lots of features, including the ability to import images and videos, and add text to overlay on top of any source. The switcher app allows you to switch between all of these sources live, so there is no need for editing. You can record and save as a file to share later, or send to youtube live (or a few other live video sources). You can operate everything by yourself, but I recommend having at least one helper to pull it off smoothly.
