[Ed Note: I just learned that Movenote now requires a paid subscription, starting at $2.99 a month. I think they need to provide solid help and support if they are going to that model (their “Help” function is pretty minimal and I don't see any way to communicate). We'll have to see how that works out. – KW 5/9/16]
WEEK 7 – Movenote
Want to deliver an assignment and explain it with a quick video or audio clip? Movenote makes it a snap! Movenote is a great free web app for creating a video or audio note to ‘attach' to one or more digital resources. One of the coolest functions of Movenote is the ability for students to respond via video as well. This is such a good way to bring more social interaction and teacher presence to digital assignments, online course work, flipped content delivery, blended learning, etc. So go for it – give Movenote a try today!
