20 Awesome BYOD and Mobile Learning Apps

If students can’t find, review and access their notes or pictures of the board, their mobile notetaking system is useless. There are two multi-platform frontrunners. In my opinion, the most robust single note-taking app is Microsoft OneNote because it looks just like a traditional notebook. It rocks interactive whiteboards because the notes you write on the board go directly into the notebook you share with the students. You can also edit simultaneously with a maximum of five students (my unofficial number from testing it). Even with its strengths, I think the iOS version of OneNote is lacking, and it doesn’t have the robust developer and app community of Evernote. But if you’re predominantly using Windows or Surface RTs and have an IT staff who can support the setup, this may still be your best option. Evernote is a multiplatform app with robust, useful apps like Skitch that let you work with your notes in cool ways — but you cannot edit simultaneously.
