I love my tablet and my smart phone. I knew the iPad was going to revolutionize my teaching and I spend a lot of time looking for the best apps to make doing my job better. The one problem was that I felt like I really had to dig to find apps that didn’t involve colouring a picture of Curious George (the education category on the iTunes App store really seems much more geared for K-12 apps and there are just more apps that suitable for the younger learners).
Here are my favourite apps for teaching in Higher Ed:
1. Explain Everything – I use this to create my video podcasts and post lecture recaps (probably my most used tool)
4. Keynote- I’m a Mac Gal, keynote is the way I roll for lectures with beautiful templates and the best animation created, magic move. You can create presentation from scratch, or run existing presentations.
