Over the past month, these articles have mentioned iAnnotate’s use in local government and schools.
- Murfreesboro, TN City Council purchased 10 iPads with iAnnotate for its council members. Their hopes mirror the goals of every city that has gone this route: increased productivity, elimination of printing costs, and making the neighboring city councils simply green with tech-envy.
- Hudson Oaks, TX City Council follows suit: “The iAnnotate software that the council and staff will now use to view the agendas provides council with more advanced electronic reviewing tools than were available to them in a standard PDF reviewer on a laptop,” Campbell-Husband said. “When they make comments, note questions they need to ask, these are automatically saved in the downloaded agenda on the iPad, making it harder for a council member to inadvertently lose their electronic notes prior to a meeting.” The article provided no solution for council members who may inadvertently lose their iPads.
- Edgewood, TX School Board will receive iPads to cut down on over 600 pages of printed material for each board member. The article goes on to cite iAnnotate’s use by students in completing and submitting assignments at a local high school: “The ability to tag books electronically and email or print notes has been a wonderful addition to our learning environment.”
