Projects / Mediabird


Mediabird allows students to document and review their study effort using a collaborative notepad. The Web2.0 application allows for taking notes on a personal notepad. A virtual text marker allows the students to highlight their notes and ask questions about the highlighted parts. The sharing feature allows study groups to share and discuss their notes as well as questions they have created. By-and-by, the students collect answers to the questions. Pairs of questions and answers are collected in a card box that allows for memorizing the important facts later on (e.g. for an exam or presentation). The program is also available as a Moodle activity.
