Oklahoma State University has formally released its internal findings on an iPad pilot conducted during the Fall 2010 semester, showing that the device had a positive impact in an academic environment.
In this article, I will guide you through my creative process in which I developed a simple but useful iPad web app in just one weekend.
KF: While learning coding language can seem a daunting task this article begins to suggest that it isn't necessarily a prerequisite for App development. Solid web design skills can translate your work into the area of app development.
"Cocoa Box’s Penultimate, the beautifully simple handwriting app for iPad, has been one of our favorites pretty much since it came out two years ago, so we’re very thrilled to announce that we’ve acquired the company and that Penultimate is now part of the Evernote family!"
KF: Just a little insight into the market place around mobile apps. This sort of merging aften leads to integrated functionality and development into hybrid areas. The effects on eLearning and mobile productivity will surely emerge over time.
Picle is a free app for iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch that works well for putting images and audio together to create digital stories or multimedia projects. It’s hard to imagine an app that’s easier to use.
Many ways to fill your queue. Bookmarks. RSS. Facebook and Twitter.
Watchlater comes with a powerful bookmarklet which detects videos from over 40 platforms, even if videos are embedded on other sites. You can also post URLs into your queue via email. On top of that, connect with your Twitter, Facebook or Google Reader profiles to automatically add videos from these streams to your queue.
Nothing will hone your iPad skills quite like rising to a creative challenge. I wanted to get a better understanding of GarageBand's new Smart Strings section, plus I still felt that there was more to explore with the new iPad's camera.
With the in mind, I decided to shoot, edit and score a short film about a pleasant subtropical garden that's not too far from me. Abbotsbury Gardens is lovely this time of year, I knew that there would be lots of colour on show and that all the extra pixels of the new iPad, both in the display and the camera, would help me get those macro flower shots just right.
Screenleap makes it really easy to share your computer screen. You can share your screen with as many people as you like with no downloads, account setup, or cost required. Friends, family, and colleagues can view your computer from their laptops, desktops, or mobile devices without having to install anything.
KF: May offer some alternatives in a BYOD environment - "pushing" your presentation directly from your computer to student devices.
Deploying iPads at any kind of scale is just short of maddening. While the process of tapping around to install one app on one iPad isn’t too bad, installing a dozen apps on hundreds iPads isn’t a particularly appealing way to spend a month. If you are going to deploy iPads at scale, you need a strategy. You need a battle plan. In addition, you will also need to stay hydrated. I don’t think I’ve discovered the silver bullet, but I’ll share some of my experiences with you in order to, hopefully, shorten the learning curve.
Editing video on the go with the iPad and iMovie is pretty simple. Below I’ve grabbed three different free tutorials from Youtube that show you how to use the app. While the tutorials can give you a good of how to use the app, they are free so there are some limitations. If you are looking for really good, thorough tutorials on everything from iMovie to WordPress, I’d recommend subscribing to Lynda.com. These are a good starting point for you though if you’ve never seen iMovie on the iPad.
This time around Stanford says it will use a peer to peer social learning site called Piazza to foster more community in the online class setting.
Stanford University is offering a free, online video course on creating apps for the iPhone and iPad this summer. It uses videos from Paul Hegarty’s programming course and was wildly popular in years past with more than 10 million downloads of individual lecture videos from the 10-week course.
