Innovative iPad Use in Liberal Arts

June 12th, 2012 Comments off

Recently, Dr. Rebecca Frost Davis, Program Officer for the Humanities with the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE), put out a call on the NITLE listserv asking for examples of innovate iPad use by humanities faculty. I’ve attached a link to her presentation in which she gives a number of model use cases, including three by our very own University of Alabama faculty, Dr. David Michelson (p. 28), Dr. Jonathan Whitaker (p. 30), and Dr. Margaret Peacock (p. 36). I’ve also provided direct links to the posts on this blog that detail the iPad work that Dr. Davis referenced in her presentation.

Camena provides lyrics to songs played on the iPad. You can paste in lyrics, or correct lyrics that the app has provided. There is not yet an iPad version for this app, but the iPhone/iPod app will work on the iPad.
