iPad Apps for Law Professors (and others)

Filed under: Apps, Tech Tips — Tags: — uhlawlibrary @ 5:15 pm

Product Details  Get a connector cable that allows you to project your iPad to a projector and you can use these apps in class.  Not all apps on this posting are free.  The ones that cost something are worth it.

iThoughtsHD – totally awesome mind mapping app that includes the ability to send an email with an outline made from the mind map and the mind map image (like the one at left).

Keynote – presentation app that isn’t as flexible as PowerPoint, but has very cool transitions and templates like chalkboard.

Socrative – this is a free clicker app.  Technically it’s an iPhone app, but works well on the iPad.  The Teacher app has a companion Student app.  Students can use their smart phones, iPad, or regular computer with online access to answer questions.

ShowMe – a whiteboard on your iPad when you don’t have a whiteboard or a chalkboard or chalk.

RDM+ – when you forget a file that’s on the desktop in your office, this app gives you access to your “other” computer.  (Saved me more than once.)
