Online Colleges (http://www.onlinecolleges.com/) has a list of their top ten must-have apps for college students. I would add Tempo to this list, but other than that, I can’t think of any. What other apps are essential for students?
This article – How Professors Are Using Your Favorite Apps – has some great ideas for using technology in the classroom in ways you might not have ever imagined. Using Skype for multi-university collaboration, using Twitter for reminders, and sharing documents via Dropbox are great ideas, but some professors are taking advantage of the tools to restructure learning and the delivery of information. Some professors have even designed their own apps to take attendance and provide interaction during lectures.
How can we apply this to our department? What things are you already doing?
