I love trying new apps. Here are my latest discoveries…

1. My Moodle

Our university uses Moodle for its LMS. This app now works with our new Moodle upgrade! Woo hoo! Although this app cannot serve as a replacement for the Moodle interface, it does have useful tools. You can view the participants in your course, send a memo, upload pictures and video to your private files, and download class material for use off line.

Type one word, one line, or even paragraphs into Notegraphy, choose a format, then share instantly. Your post will appear, in beautiful writing, to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr. Here is an example of a post I created and shared on Twitter and Instagram:

This app costs $1.99 but I love it! In fact, I used it to create the graphics for this web site. Edit photos or backgrounds with Rhonna Farrer’s exclusive frames, designs, fonts, and filters. I use it all the time. You can add the fonts and designs to images or any background. Here is an example of a picture created in less than a minute:

4. Subtext

Subtext is excellent for any instructor. Engage your class with any eBook, PDF, or article. Create private groups and embed discussion questions within the text. Notes are linked to specific passages so there is a “natural emphasis on close reading, citing text evidence, and supporting claims.” Read the material on or offline. Paste tagged passages or annotations in Google Docs. It’s FREE!
