Quick Tip - iPad Screenshots

(iPads) Permanent link

At yesterday's cohort meeting, we discussed ways that remote whiteboards like AirSketch could be used to demonstrate concepts while the instructor roams the room.  One of the most useful tools on the iPad to use in conjunction with a remote whiteboard is the screenshot function.  

At any time and in any app, you can take a screenshot or a picture of your iPad's screen by pressing the power and home button at the same time.  This takes an image of your screen and saves it to your photo roll.  If you find an image on the web, a graphic in an app, or some text you'd like to capture and annotate, this is an easy way to get it quickly.

Here is a short video I made on how to do this:

Moodle tips of the week

  1. You may have noticed that the 2014SP classes were uploaded last Friday morning. As you build those classes, and migrate content from previous semesters make sure you don’t copy Turnitin assignments. Because of the way the Turnitin company denotes assignments in their database, it will see an assignment copied from one class to another as being the same assignment. Every time it is copied, it just adds the new students to the existing assignment.

Moodle tips of the week

  1. Sometimes entering grades in a large gradebook can be a challenge. One way to move between students in the same column faster is to use the tab key. In gradebook the tab moves down not sideways. And [shift] [tab] will move up. To avoid having to scroll all the way to the bottom of the gradebook to scroll to the right, just click somewhere in the gradebook (but not a cell you would put a grade in) then use your arrow keys to move right and left across your gradebook (this also works for up and down)
