Notability for Teachers & Students
Course participants should have the Notability app on their iPads. This course does not cover the OSX version of Notability.
Learn how to use Notability for iPad – an amazing note taking app for students and teachers of all levels.
If you are using an iPad in school you know how valuable a great note taking app can be. The right app has to be fast, flexible, and powerful, but most of all it has to help you learn.
After researching dozens of apps for an Apple Distinguished 1:1 iPad school I discovered Notability.
This amazing app transcends basic note taking to become a flexible tool for teachers and students of all levels.
With over 60 video lectures this step-by-step course will guide teachers and students through basic and advanced topics to get the most out of Notability on the iPad. Each unit includes in depth videos, sample handouts, and a practice activity.
- Getting Started – Learn what Notability can do and practice with the ‘Welcome to Notability’ note. Your homework for this section will help you brainstorm how you might use Notability.
