New Canvas Integration – Respondus LockDown Browser

Are you looking for a way to prevent students taking an online Canvas quiz from accessing any outside websites, printing, copying or accessing other applications  during the quiz ?   If yes, then consider requiring students to use the Respondus LockDown Browser,  which is now available within Endicott’s Canvas platform.

Socrative.com – Exit Ticket

Now that the semester is underway, you will begin to present material to your students. Maybe it will be a review of a text or a presentation or maybe you will show a film. However you present the material, your hope is that the students understand it and can put it to use.

DON’T WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT ASSESSMENT TO FIND OUT IF THEY “GOT IT” or NOT! USE THE FREE EXIT TICKET WITHIN SOCRATIVE.COM.

This free resource can be used on any device via the web or you can download the free app.

BaiBoard 3

BaiBoard 3 – I would like to introduce a new App for white boarding/note taking/ collaboration and more. I am amazed that an App with all the functionality such as this is free!

import and annotate PDF’s, photos, text, web clippings and more.

collaborate with others on the same document

add in the ability to add voice capability to talk to others while collaborating via the app

Use it to journal about a project, share group notes, discuss designs, etc.
