Discussion for LectureTools App for iPad
Perry Samson (Faculty)
The LectureTools iPad app is an excellent alternative to clickers. Not only does it allow student response to multiple-choice questions but also image-based and free response questions. Students can pose questions and indicate when they are confused and students see the instructor's slides and videos in and outside class and can take notes synchronized with the slides. All notes and questions are instantly stored in the cloud and available from any web browser.
Despite the potential distractive power of having a mobile device in class it's been shown that deliberate engagement of the mobile devices like this actually significantly increases student engagement, especially in larger classes. Basically if you allow students to participate in class they will!
Cloud-based, all it requires is a wireless connection.

Seems like this would be a great way to keep students engaged in the course. Material can be flagged as confusing by the student. Notes can be taken on the individual slides. Slides can be bookmarked for later study. Questions can be asked to the instructor. The instructor can ask questions and embed videos for the students to watch.
