sarspri's curator insight, January 10, 2013 8:17 AM

The "no account sign-up needed" element is a key distinguishing factor for TitanPad.  Plus the playback feature, which is great for watching a (double or triple time) digital record of a learner's writing process unfold after the fact.  The latter distinguishes it from Google Docs for particular types of tasks.

 

This is a solid version of what used to be EtherPad.

"In this practical seminar Amy Lightfoot explores the current opportunities for learning English using mobile phones both in and out of the classroom. She debates the pros and cons of this medium and looks at a variety of content that is currently available. She shares her experiences of creating some of this content, and discusses the early outcomes of these projects.
