LiveBinders Comes to the iPad

The popular online online bookmarking, digital notebook service LiveBinders released a new iPad app last week. The new LiveBinders iPad app gives you access to all of your binders to edit and present the content stored within them.

If you aren't familiar with LiveBinders itself, it is a free online service that allows you to create online binders of webpages, images, and documents. Live Binders displays your collected content in a tabbed, book-like format. You can create binders for as many topics as you like. Adding content to your Live Binder can be done by manually typing in the url of a webpage, upload files from your computer to your Live Binder, or add content through the Live Binders browser add-ons for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer.

Applications for Education
Live Binders can be an excellent tool for students to use to create online booklets of resources they find online combined with content that they've created. I learned about the LiveBinders iPad app from Steven Anderson who uses LiveBinders to organize and share much of the great content he's discovered and developed online.

Live Binders Improves for Educational Use

Live Binders, a good digital portfolio service I reviewed in August, recently added some improved features that will be of interest to educators. Live Binders now makes all binders private by default. Live Binders has also added the option for users to import their Delicious bookmarks into the binders they're creating. Not a brand new feature, but a feature that teachers should be aware of is the presentation mode available in Live Binders.

In the email I received from Live Binders they included a link to this screencast about using Live Binders in education. The screencast was created by Teaching and Learning in the Digital Age. The screencast is embedded below.


Applications for Education
Live Binders is a good, free, resource for creating a portfolio of your student's digital creations. The new default setting is a good thing for teachers who are worried about the privacy of their students' work. The presentation mode could be useful for having students present their Live Binders to their classmates.

Live Binders - Online Binders of Webpages and Images

Live Binders is a neat service that allows you to create online binders of webpages, images, and documents. Live Binders displays your collected content in a tabbed, book-like format. You can create binders for as many topics as you like. Adding content to your Live Binder can be done by manually typing in the url of a webpage, upload files from your computer to your Live Binder, or add content through the Live Binders bookmarklet for Firefox and Internet Explorer. Live Binders has an excellent series of video tutorials to help you get started.

Thanks to Kelly at iLearn Technology for the tip about Live Binders.

Live Binders could be an excellent tool for students to use to create online booklets of resources they find online combined with content that they've created. Or students could build Live Binders to showcase the work that they've done.
