Cite your Sources: CiteLigher

Web Address:

CiteLighter is competing with dozens of other tools out there for taking notes on the web.  But with it's unique academic perspective it might find a useful niche to fill.  With tools for highlighting, saving and ordering information CiteLighter may be a tool worth reckoning with.

Infuse Learning

Web Address:

I have been using as a learner response system in my classes and presentations for a while now and I really love it. But recently, at UCET, Leslie Fisher introduced me to Infuse Learning.  It does several things that Socrative doesn't and still does all the things that Socrative does.  I still like the simplicity of the Socrative URL but if I was regularly using this with students the power and features of Infuse learning would quickly overwhelm what other interactive clicker tools can do.

Remember Everything

There are a variety of tools, techniques, resources and information available for taking notes.  There isn't just an App for that there are literally hundreds.  This time we are going to talk about just 4! All of them part of a single service.

Evernote  is the service.  It  lets you take notes and keep track of lists, documents, all kinds of stuff on virtually any device you own.  There are apps for the desktop, iOS devices, Android and clippers, plugins, and add-ons for most browsers.
Skitch Logo
Skitch for Annotations! Skitch lets you take photos and annotate them.  These can be anything from screen grabs on an iPhone to massive images on your desktop.  Skitch basically lays a transparent layer over your photo and allows text, arrows, shapes and squiggles on top of your image.  These annotated images are uploaded into your Evernote account and available in Skitch on all your devices.

Penultimate logo

Penultimate is a handwriting app.  It lets you make simple and complex notes and keeps them all...yup, you guessed it.  Right in your EverNote Notebooks.

The last item sort of speaks for itself. It's Contacts management tool.

Three tools and 1 Service that let you remember it all.

Welcome to Jorgie Learning

I really am learning and this blog is maintained both as a record of some of what I am doing as well as a place for me to train and teach others about creating an online presence. So please don't mind the dust. We aren't remodeling we are learning!

Visit some of my other blogs or the other blogs I find mildly entertaining for a more polished feel.
