Welcome to ERAC’s mobile apps collection. ERAC teacher evaluators have reviewed over 300 mobile apps focused for education and for various platforms. Each review contains a product description, pricing information, any social considerations and more. These apps have also been rated out of 5. This rating was based on the content, instructional and technical design.
You will also be able to rate any apps in this collection. Your rating will be averaged with all other user ratings for that app. You will also be able to post comments, suggested uses and any other feedback. To make this an even more valuable collection for teachers, your expertise and user experience is very important.
Please submit any apps you’d like ERAC to review and include in this collection. Although we need more apps for non- MAC devices, all suggestions are welcome.
Here are some featured apps that are new to the collection. Each month we add new apps to increase the collection and address any gaps. We will also be checking for any upgrades or similar apps that may be better than ones in our collection. Please post any feedback to help make our collection current and robust.
