intuiface

Intuiface

Intuiface is the world’s premier platform for creating, deploying, measuring, and managing interactive digital experiences. Create amazing highly functional multi-touch applications for any screen and any audience in record time, without coding.

We have found Intuiface a fantastic option for highly customised interfaces; however there is a steep learning curve for novices, and better suited to liaise with a design company to assist with the process.

 Hexagon Valley can assist you with your project if you are interested in creating a customised interface for your kiosk.

LucidChart

LucidChart

Teach your students the power of teamwork. Lucidchart runs in the cloud, so your whole group can create or comment on a diagram together in real time. If someone’s missing, tag that person in a comment to solicit feedback.

Lucidchart complements your BYOD or 1:1 initiative. Unlike other diagramming applications, which require installation on a single device, Lucidchart is accessible on all the technology you already have, including Chromebooks. Use whichever devices meet your needs—Lucidchart plays nice with all.

No matter what subject you teach or study, browse through our shape libraries to find the right images for your project. You can even add videos to your diagram or perform an in-editor search to find images outside of Lucidchart.

Songster

Songster

Another choice for viewing and playing music notation and guitar tablature is the popular Songster. Very similar to GuitarPro (which we also highly recommend if you are looking for a desktop installation) has midi playback and a large repository of notation.

A great resource especially for teaching guitar, and excellent when viewed on a large interactive display when teaching groups of students. Coupled with YouTube access on the screen, we really wish this was available when we were learning guitar as kids.
