Innovative Uses of your iPad in the Classroom

Computer Services will be hosting a seminar presentation tomorrow, January 26 from 10am to 11:30am on innovative uses of iPads. Please see the announcement below for full information and please pass along to your colleagues in SCT.

A growing number of faculty across the world are using iPads to enhance teaching and learning. Tomorrow (1/26), Apple representatives will be visiting Temple to demonstrate and discuss some of the interesting and innovative ways that faculty can use the iPad. In this 90 minute session, we’ll explore a “day in the life” of a student and instructor, and demonstrate how the iPad can be a powerful solution that transforms both the academic and personal experience. Participants will also understand how the iPad improves learning workflow, enhances communication, fosters collaboration and contributes to a greener campus. The session will be interactive and attendees are invited to bring their iPads and encouraged to share their favorite iPad use either in or out of the classroom.

This discussion will be especially pertinent after Apple’s recent announcement regarding its new iBooks app.

  1. I discovered this week that my iPad would not enable me to leave Discussion Board posts in my course’s Blackboard site. Anyone have a solution?

    • Er, no . . . didn’t even think of that . . . just going in via Internet connection. You’re so smart, Sheryl. Tell me more!

  2. I believe BLACKBOARD MOBILE LEARN app allows you to access Blackboard in a fairly user-friendly environment. I am not currently using the Discussion Board feature but I checked a past course of mine that did, and it works quite well. Let me know how it goes for you.
