I'm wondering which students will go above and beyond to attempt to use technologies that can actually be embedded into their TIB page tabs. I know that the easiest option, but not always the best, is to record the TIB essays on the iPhone app and upload it as a file. IDEALLY, students will seek ways for their recordings to play directly from their page without the expectation of listeners downloading additional software to listen to their essays.
I guess I'll find out tomorrow!
