Ipad tips

As usual, the net is flooded with sites providing various ways to get the most out of your ipad. Gizmodo site floats up first on a google search. The most useful one here is to be able to take a screenshot – especially useful for maps of places you are about to visit.

Tech radar does a one up by providing 75 tips!! Many useful with iphone / ipod touch but a good review of the various shortcuts and ways to maximise use of the iphone OS. How to geek has a ‘definitive list’ with well laid out instructions and many tips not covered in the previous two sites, well worth a good look.  Also some interesting tips on ipad news daily including 12 little known features and the evolution of various technologies which culminate in the ipad.

All above useful toward how we can leverage the use of net tablets to enhance student learning at CPIT. Have just purchased the ipad camera kit and the ipad dock connector to VGA adaptor which I will test out over the next couple of days.

The iPad is a perfect tool for elearning students. With the easy interface and fast connectivity, it's destined to become as ubiquitous as laptops in campuses. I hope they develop more e learning authoring tools designed to work on iPads.
