Wednesday Workshop: Moodle, Showbie and Conference notes

Just in case you missed another installation of our staff iPad Show and Tell, here is a list of links to the presentations and resources discussed!

1. MOODLE by David Pelletier

The first presentation was from David, who attended a tech conference and became enamoured with Moodle. Unbeknownst to him, he had already been using Moodle as a student – he is taking an online course on wine that uses it as a platform. It was the perfect opportunity to show us what the tool is capable of.

2. Showbie by Nadia Schoonhoven

Nadia has been playing around with Showbie as a way to collect student assignments and give feedback. She is using the free version which means she does not have access to the built-in annotation function in the app. To get around this, she uses Showbie in conjunction with Notability to send her feedback to the students. As she mentions in her presentation, it is a great tool to help you go paperless!

She even shared her presentation via Showbie so that I could have access to it:

I also wroe a rAPPido review on Showbie which you can see here.

3.Conference notes by Melanie Leblanc

Last but not least, Melanie gave us a whirlwind tour of a dizzying amount of resources she learned about at her conference. Highlights include resources for making info graphics, and mind mapping tools.
