iPads are used by many of our students but they can also be used to great effect to assist your teaching and learning. We have collated an introductory fact sheet with links and apps which will help you learn the basics of how to use your iPad. 'Using iPads for productivity' provides information about more advanced apps which can be used to enhance your teaching and to help you create materials. Deakin Learning Futures also offers iPad workshops. Check the Professional development page for dates and information.
Cloud concepts can be made relatively easily using an iPad, other tablet device, your laptop or a camera.
Below you can access some fact sheets which will introduce you to the theory of cloud concepts and also help you to develop your own cloud concepts using an iPad.
Deakin Learning Futures also offer workshops to introduce you to the concept of cloud concepts and how they can be used to enhance your your course materials.
