I am looking to get some advice about what apps are being used at the higher ed level?
1) What apps are successful? Engaging?
2) what apps don't work so well?
Hey David. "Apps" covers a lot of territory. Can you be more specific? For instance are you wondering about the Canvas mobile apps for iOS / Android? Are you asking about LTI apps that integrate with Canvas? If so, there are tons of them: https://www.eduappcenter.com/.
My campus uses Turnitin (plagiarism detection, peer review, and inline grading), Respondus Lockdown and monitoring (test security package), and SoftChalk (Lesson authoring software); all of these work well, and I would be pretty grumpy if the college stopped providing these tools.
Some faculty also use some of the free apps to trick out the RTE editor with YouTube or Quizlet or whatever. One of the neat things about LTI is that many tools can be turned on in an individual course; many LTI tools do not have to be turned on in the account level. For instance, a user can add the LTI tool for Office Mix to his course by following these instructions: Setting up Office Mix with Instructure Canvas.
I hope that helps!
Thank you! I was referring to LTI Apps
