5 Excellent iPad Apps Students Can Use for Taking Audio Notes ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Primary Humanities and Social Sciences | Scoop.it

"There are times when taking a note in a written format is not a practical option. You might for instance be attending a lecture or a conference or you might simply prefer to listen to your recorded notes instead of reading them, in these cases apps such as the ones below are what you will use for audio note taking. While keeping the basic note taking features, all of these apps are fantastic for recording notes and adding audio to your notes. I invite you to check out the selection I have below and share with us what you thin about it."
