Ignite Teaching is Shutting Down Next Week

Ignite Teaching is a free mobile app and web app that students can use to collaborate on the development of multimedia projects. It became fairly popular a couple of years ago, but apparently not popular enough as it is shutting down next week. In an email that the company sent out yesterday they announced that on August 1st the Ignite Teaching mobile apps and website will be taken down.

Some tools that provide services similar to Ignite Teaching include SeeSaw, Edmodo, Otus, and Google Classroom.

Ignite Teaching - Collaborate on Multimedia Projects

Ignite Teaching is a free iPad app and web app that students can use to collaborate on the development of multimedia projects. Through Ignite Teaching teachers can create project titles that they share with students through an invitation code. Students then join the project and build slides that include pictures, text, and video. Students can work on their contributions to the project at their own pace. When they are finished working on the project, students submit their work and their teachers can see it in their accounts.

Ignite Teaching allows teachers to create multiple projects and have multiple projects running at the same time. This means that teachers could create small group projects instead of whole class projects to complete in Ignite Teaching. It is also possible to have students work on independent projects in Ignite Teaching.

Applications for Education
Ignite Teaching's design tools have improved of late which makes it easier for students to create slides although there are still better tools for slide design. Where Ignite Teaching shines is on the sharing and collaboration side of things. The sharing options make it easy for teachers to view their students' work and give them feedback on it.
