What is Apture?
It is an amazing site that is a multimedia source locator. It has the capability of making one's website, blog, or wikispaces go from being purely text to three dimensional pages that appeal to many different learning styles, particularly visual and audio learners.
How does it work? When a person comes upon the entry in your website, blog or wikispace, they just point and click on the highlighted word and presto - they will see additional information about the term.
I will be using it to highlight the the educational terms that we all frequently encounter in our emails, articles, books, and meetings.
The instructions are user-friendly. If I can get it, and believe me, I was pushed to learn it by the inventive, inquisitive, insightful, tech-savvy students at McKee to learn it, then anyone can use it.
By the way, it is - f-r-e-e. That's right - FREE.
