All iPads out…

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:

Start of Semester 2

Happy New Year :-)

The students who received the iPads should now be familiar with the devices and the good news is that the iTunes vouchers have arrived :-) We will give the vouchers to the students tomorrow and also contact the remaining level 6 students not yet taking part in the project. The students have also received emails regarding the blogging that they are expected to carry out. It was decided that the student blogs will be kept on Blackboard, with possible extracts published on the main iWestminster blog.

The team will also meet tomorrow 10.20am…
