Mobile Apps for Study and Research Part 1
Today we begin a three-part post on mobile apps of interest to the John Tyler community.
When using your smartphone or tablet, mobile apps can be an advantage for studying and researching when you aren’t near a computer. Mobile apps are specifically designed to view on a smartphone or tablet; they usually have a clean design and larger text, making the site easier to operate on a small screen.
All of these apps are free to download. Some may require registration.
- Blackboard Mobile Learn: This app is designed for students and teachers to access documents in multiple formats, read announcements, create discussion threads, upload media, and create content items within the course map, comment on blogs and much more.
- OverDrive Media Console: Virginia Community College libraries provide free audiobooks you can borrow just like regular library materials. Just sign in with your VCCS account and enjoy access to over 1,000 audiobook titles you can download and listen to anywhere.
Tomorrow: Recommended mobile apps for research in periodicals and scholarly journals. Stay tuned!
