Smartphones are ubiquitous and easily accessible. Our presentation aims to show faculty and students how to take advantage of mobile applications in online education. "Get Smart with your Smartphone" will cover four apps for Android and iOS platforms including Google Hangouts and Scopia Mobile for video conferencing, and Google Drive and Evernote for document sharing. This presentation will showcase how these mobile apps can be easily used as free alternatives to online classroom/lecture capture tools like Blackboard Collaborate. We will provide a brief overview of each application and list suggestions on how to best use them from a faculty and student perspective. Streamline virtual classroom discussions and minimize the tech-related learning curve by using one of these simple video conferencing apps. Maximize organization and productivity by making class projects shareable and readily available in the cloud; no USB drive required.
