"I just came across this app this weekend. Downloader Elite (iTunes link) will allow you to “download any legal resource from the internet”. Here, you will be able to save videos directly onto your iPad, iPod touch or iPhone without connecting it to a computer. I have tried it with a couple YouTube videos, and it has worked quite well. "
"Editing video on the go with the iPad and iMovie is pretty simple. Below I’ve grabbed three different free tutorials from Youtube that show you how to use the app. While the tutorials can give you a good of how to use the app, they are free so there are some limitations. If you are looking for really good, thorough tutorials on everything from iMovie to WordPress, I’d recommend subscribing to Lynda.com. These are a good starting point for you though if you’ve never seen iMovie on the iPad."
"One of the frustrating things I found in teaching online last semester was the lack of direct contact with students. The class felt impersonal, despite my efforts to give it life.
I found that especially frustrating when I graded assignments. The feedback seemed cold and distant, even as I as I tried to point out strong areas of writing and multimedia projects.
I overcame this in part by using my iPad to add audio comments to grading. This was a revelation to me. Using an app called iAnnotate, I could write comments on PDFs but also add voice comments, allowing me to make grading more personal but also add details that I otherwise wouldn’t have included."
"I don’t want to make blanket statements regarding purchases. I fully recognize that every educator, school and institution has to decide what makes sense for them; ultimately, it is you that must live with the purchasing decision. At the same time, I would like to point out some things to consider. Applecare, from what I understand, extends the standard warranty of your iPad from 12 months to 24 months. Additionally, if you crack the screen of your iPad, you can have that iPad replaced for an additional $49 fee over and above the cost of your applecare protection plan of $99."
"But now, some smart Australian developer by the name of Simeon Nasilowski has come up with the brilliant idea of being able to program (simple) iPad apps – and all straight from your iPad. Codea (formerly known as Codify) is not only a simple way of designing your own iPad apps but also features plenty of built-in tools and tricks to help make your programming experience a lot more easier and, dare I say it, enjoyable."
"Serious, it’s Free and it works. The developer would love to have you in-app donate of few of your hard earned cents towards their efforts, which proves to be a easy decision after playing with all of the features of Yocto Clock on the iPad."
"If you’ve been interested in learning how to develop apps for the iPhone and iPad, this may be the best chance yet. Based on Stanford’s Fall 2011 iOS development course, the new offering from Stanford gets social and lets you work on assignments with the rest of the enrolled class. "
"Every teacher seems to fully acknowledge how quickly and comfortably the average student adopts new technology. The truth is, students learn how to have fun on an iPad pretty quickly, but they don’t always learn how to trouble shoot, be safe, and learn effectively right off the bat. Having a team of students that are well trained in iPad support can help build leadership amongst your students, and will help alleviate the stress on both students and teachers as they learn to adopt this new technology."
