It is particularly useful for both Blended and Flipped learning. DocentEDU allows users to easily turn any webpage or published Google Doc into an interactive lesson where they can...

iTools One-stop manager of your iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch

iTools One-stop manager of your iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch | technologies |
One-stop manager of your iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch
John Dalziel's insight:

iTools is a simple and powerful tool for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch users; both learners and practitioners.
It is 100% freeware and a mobile tool. Users don't need to install the software onto a PC. Run iTools from a USB stick, as and when it is required.
The biggest plus for me is the ability to share both my iPhone and iPad screens on a Windowns PC; this is useful for both teaching and, as I've discovered, screen casting from the various apps. Resulting video clips are .avi.
iTools helps users manage media, iBooks, pictures and other files in their iDevices; although I haven't tried it yet, users are assured iTools can help install, uninstall and backup apps; it also can backup and restore folders.

John Dalziel's insight:

SnapStill is a handy iPad app for practitioners, learners, assessors, and or others, to use to extract photos from videos.
SnapStill allows users to pull out high quality shots from any video in their Photos library.
The way this works is very simple they...
   ● simply select a video,
   ● scroll to the frame where they want to grab a photo and
   ● press the save button or double-tap the video.
For precise frame-by-frame control, they drag their finger directly on the video.
SnapStill also includes ’Suggestions’ feature which enables the app to conduct automatic searches to find the best shots to snap from a given video.

edshelf allows users to curate libraries of relevant apps, and store them by whatever measure they choose.
