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!
Mark created a Posterous site for the student blogs. That’s a really good idea! Here’s my invite and the site details. Let’s hope we get some really good information there
Right, this week we have managed to get all the iPads out to the students in Life Sciences and Computer Science.

These are apps that I would recommend. We have also recommended that the students get iAnnotate pdf and Blackboard Mobile.
