I am attending a lecture and I am viewing the slides in PDF that I retrieved via blackboard. I forgot my iPad so I use my iPod Touch. I didn’t have any PDF annotator, so I just downloaded neu annotate. It’s free and lets me view the PDF and annotate it! really good find!
Right, this week we have managed to get all the iPads out to the students in Life Sciences and Computer Science. All now have a £25 iTunes voucher to buy apps… and Blogging is starting… Personally, I have used my voucher to buy GoodReader (to read, store and organise documents), Pages (to edit documents) and Textastic (to write software code). These are apps that I would recommend. We have also recommended that the students get iAnnotate pdf and Blackboard Mobile.
Here’s a screen shot of Textastic:
Phil purchased iAnnotate. This was one of the apps mentioned in the article that I sent to the team this morning. Phil will be testing the app and will report on this application shortly. Cost £5.99.
