in the March 2020 issue
In the December 2017 issue of the Academic Newsletter, we introduced the The 12 Apps of Christmas to those who weren’t familiar with it.
As a reminder, the 12 apps of Christmas is presented by the Educational Technology User Group (ETUG) and supported by BCcampus. On each day of the 12 days, they would highlight a different free educational app, including important information like how to use it, where to get it, and how it might be used for teaching and learning.
This year, they’ve transformed it into the 12 Apps of 2020. For each app, they explain what it is and how it works, provide download links, and offer a short task so you can challenge yourself and begin using the app.
January’s App is Animoto, “a cloud-based video creation tool that allows users to storyboard with video clips, photos, and music, for designing and producing impressive videos, slideshows, and presentations.”
February’s app is Remind, “a simple app that enables communication between a group of people.”
Visit 12appsofchristmas.ca to see all the apps, including the “12 Apps of Christmas” lists from 2016, 2017, and 2018.
