How To Create An App Library

How To Create An App Library | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Apps and books are more similar than they might seem. They each diffuse content, provide access to expertise, and allow the cataloging and consolidation of knowledge into accessible forms for learners to study. And while there are important differences—apps can be constantly refreshed new information, while a book is what it is the moment it is published—there are some lessons to be learned with how we collect and categorize books."

EDTECH@UTRGV's insight:

Intetesting idea. UT-Brownsville just launced a 1-to-1 iPad pilot project. App Libraries may be a good way to distribute apps to all members of a program.
