5 Excellent iPad Apps Students Can Use for Taking Audio Notes ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Excellent iPad Apps Students Can Use for Taking Audio Notes ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | School Librarian | 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."

How to Save Web Pages as PDF Files on the iPad & iPhone - OSX Daily

How to Save Web Pages as PDF Files on the iPad & iPhone - OSX Daily | School Librarian | Scoop.it

"One little feature that iOS really needs is the ability to natively “print to PDF” directly on the iPad and iPhone, a popular trick on the Mac and in the PC world that allows you to digitally print anything and, in this case, save the contents of any web document or web page as a self-contained PDF document, allowing it to be read later, printed, or used for whatever other purpose. Since this great feature isn’t around on the iPhone and iPad at the moment, we can use a nice bookmarklet trick combined with a free third party web service to be able to add a “Save as PDF” option to Safari in iOS, which allows you to ‘print’ or convert any web page to a PDF file that is then accessible to apps like iBooks. Let’s walk through the process of setting this up:"
