OSX Daily: How to Access & Use the Undo & Redo Buttons on iPad

OSX Daily: How to Access & Use the Undo & Redo Buttons on iPad | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it

"Much like OS X and Windows on the desktop, iOS on the iPad has an “Undo” and “Redo” option. Undo does just what it sounds like, it undoes the last text based action. For example, if you typed out a sentence but decided it wasn’t what you wanted to say, you could hit “Undo” and it would instantly disappear. Redo is also fairly self explanatory, as it redoes the prior text action that was just undone. For example, if you wanted to restore that sentence you typed out but made disappear with “Undo”, then hitting “Redo” would make it appear again."

How To : Visually Record Ideas Using an iPad

Visual recording is similar to audio recording: they both use the same concept that is : recording. One uses voice and the other uses visual cues like diagrams, charts, lines, arrows...etc. Think about visual recording as visual mind mapping.

This is Visual Recording and NOT (in this case) Visual Facilitation

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad

11 Mind Mapping Apps for the iPad | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it

Mind mapping is a method that works for quite a lot of people. Brain storming, idea mapping, thought generation, think tanks – call it what you will. Traditionally done on large pieces of paper, why not use your iPad to create mind maps? You could use these for your own purposes, or “convert” those large flip charts into a smaller, digital version.

e-book-news.de » Mac OS X Mavericks bringt iBooks bald auch auf den Desktop

e-book-news.de » Mac OS X Mavericks bringt iBooks bald auch auf den Desktop | iPad:  mobile Living, Learning, Lurking, Working, Writing, Reading ... | Scoop.it

Der Mac-Desktop bekommt ein neues Betriebssystem verpasst – und zu den neuen Features von OS X “Mavericks” gehört die E-Reader-App iBooks. Das wurde am Montag auf Apples jährlicher Entwicklerkonferenz WWDC in San Francisco bekanntgegeben. Ab Herbst 2013 können Apple-Fanboys und -girls also ihre im iBookStore gekaufte Lektüre nicht nur auf iPhone und iPad, sondern auch direkt am Bildschirm von Desktop oder Laptop lesen. Außerdem haben Sie so natürlich auch direkten Zugang zum iBookStore, der Apple zufolge mittlerweile mehr als 1,8 Millionen Titel enthält.

Der Schritt erscheint logisch: Ohnehin hat Apple die Unterschiede zwischen mobilem iOS und dem klassischem MacOS-Desktop im Verlaufe der letzten Versionen immer mehr eingeebnet. Absurderweise konnte man mit Apples Editor namens “iBooks Author” auf dem Desktop zwar E-Books erstellen, die reguläre Lektüre musste jedoch auf Mobilgeräten stattfinden. Andere Anbieter waren Apple da deutlich voraus – Amazon etwa hat sein App-Universum von Anfang an konsequent für so viele Plattformen wie möglich bereitgestellt, darunter auch für Windows- und Mac-Desktop.

Für die Lektüre zu Unterhaltungszwecken mag der PC-Bildschirm zwar weniger geeignet erscheinen, doch gerade wenn es um den Bereich Schule und Universität geht, könnte iBooks für Mac OS X durchaus Sinn machen. Viele Sach- und Lehrbücher werden schließlich nicht nur mobil, sondern auch stationär gelesen, was wissenschaftliches Arbeiten erleichtert. Nicht vergessen sollte man auch: zu den ersten E-Books auf einem PC-Desktop überhaupt gehörte Ende der 1980er Jahre eine Shakespeare-Gesamtausgabe. Möglich machte das ein Deal zwischen Oxford University Press und Steve Jobs damaligem Startup NeXT.

Looks like a great tool - I hope there is an Android version of it. 

StudentSupport@EdinburghCollege's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM

Studying is not the intended function of this application, however, by uploading lecture slides as images, or taking pictures of the board during class, then uploading these images to Pixntell, would allow you to create your very own custom Flashcards. By recording your own audio notes to accompany the images, you could create short movies that could act as bitesize recap tools to support your revision, or prompts for studying, or a visual plan for your coursework.
