Blackboard App for iPhone

March 26, 2009 Leave a comment

You can check out more details on the iPhone application here. This is definetely interesting and I think a big step in the right direction for Blackboard.

twidlaTwiddla is a great tool to set up a quick meeting with a virtual whiteboard. It’s got a ton of features. My favorite is the ability to load up any website within the whiteboard. Once there, you can free draw and type text right over the page you are navigating. Best of all, it’s free and each room provides an easy link so that you can share with team members.
