David Brooks / The campus tsunami: Online education is the wave of the future, even at elite universities | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

Online education is not new. The University of Phoenix started its online degree program in 1989. Four million college students took at least one online class during the fall of 2007.

But, over the past few months, something has changed. The elite, pace-setting universities have embraced the Internet. Not long ago, online courses were interesting experiments. Now online activity is at the core of how these schools envision their futures.

App Synergy: How To Synergize Your Evernote Use -- AppAdvice

App Synergy: How To Synergize Your Evernote Use -- AppAdvice | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it
This weeks App Synergy shines the spotlight on Evernote.

 

To date, this column has explored many different app synergy uses, each comprising a multitude of apps and steps. This week, we’re doing something a little different. Rather than explore one use composed of many apps, we’re going to look at many uses, which only require two apps each. The common link for each use will be Evernote, a well-regarded app that many people use, but few seem to use to its fullest potential.

These 7th Graders Have Already Published Their First iBooks Author Bestseller | Cult of Mac | Curtin iPad User Group | Scoop.it

The ebook is very creative and well written (it’s for kids, but the fun facts are interesting for all nature geeks). Sure it’s from a 7th Grade class, and it isn’t like E.O. Wilson’s free book, but I think the kids and their teacher tapped into all the best features of iBooks author. They’ve included:

Interesting layouts and nicely readable text with great info.Photo galleries of the plants and animals.Movies (made with iMovie, of course) … like feeding an alligator!
