SmartPhone Recommended App
Borders College supports students using smartphones to support their learning and has identified a series of free iPhone/iPod/iPad and Android Apps that students should find useful to support their own learning. This will be updated every week or so, so watch out for new apps regularly!
This week's app is. EVERNOTE
Evernote is an easy-to-use, free app that helps you remember everything across all of the devices you use. Stay organized, save your ideas and improve productivity.

The E-learning team are very grateful to hear your views on this app once you have tried it - have you found it useful or was it not relevant / useful for you, etc. In future these apps will be available on the College's IPads which are bookable from the E-learning team.
