Grading with Voice on an iPad - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Grading with Voice on an iPad - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

One of the frustrating things I found in teaching online last semester was the lack of direct contact with students. The class felt impersonal, despite my efforts to give it life.

I found that especially frustrating when I graded assignments. The feedback seemed cold and distant, even as I as I tried to point out strong areas of writing and multimedia projects.

I overcame this in part by using my iPad to add audio comments to grading.

The Best iPad Note Apps [Best Of] | Cult of Mac | iPad Apps for Education | Scoop.it

"One of the first things about the iPad that caught people’s attention was the touch screen, and it goes without saying that some of the first apps to start taking advantage of that touch screen were handwriting/note taking apps. Apps that let you write, draw, sketch—-and sometimes type–notes on your iPad. Something that combined technology with the age-old practice of scribbling notes on paper."
