SUU Online's App of the Month for April

Talkboard


Talkboard is an app for the iPad that allows users to participate in a call while remotely collaborating by writing, drawing, or adding pictures to a shared whiteboard. The ability to add images opens up a lot of possibilities such as adding pre-made images of questions for students to answer or adding graphs to draw on.



With Talkboard you can make different projects for different courses or for different groups of people. A project consists of a set of boards and the individuals you have invited to collaborate or view these boards.




You can create different boards to easily organize and separate illustrations or concepts.





If you are in a specific project or board, you can send out a call to all members of the project. If you want to save a project externally, there is a feature that allows you to export the project as a PDF.




Talkboard isn't just for collaborative learning, it is also a great way to share ideas whether you are in the same room with the collaborator(s) or in different states. The “talk” part of Talkboard is great. While other white boards are useful – they typically create videos for students to watch at a later time or they are used in classroom live (video or demonstration). With Talkboard when you call your fellow members you can actually speak with them and all can be working on a project at the same time – it’s live, collaborative, and communicative.

Talkboard is not compatible with Android devices or iOS devices other than iPad, so both teacher and students will need an iPad to call and collaborate with Talkboard.

Download Talkboard here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/talkboard-by-citrix/id691766202?mt=8

Attend the April App of the Month workshop for more instructions on how to use Talkboard. This workshop will take place on April 23rd from 12pm-1pm in ED 338.

If you would like to learn how to use this or other apps, please contact Michelle Thayer at thayerm@suu.edu or 435.586.1994 for an appointment. You can also stop by ED 338.
