Mobile App Toolkit
For my project at Open University I am creating a mobile app toolkit for study online using a mobile or tablet. Due to their reduced operating functionality apps for study require some familiarisation and many distance learners or returners are not familiar with these types of apps. Additionally they often are not smartphone savvy.

I propose to create a presentation in Sway by Microsoft and use it either as a flipped classroom activity followed by the students creating their own with their favourite Study Apps.
