Speak to Me

Oultines outloud bDuring class all students are supposed to take notes, but what about those who more efficiently learn by hearing the material? Well, OutlinesOutloud can help by reading outlines to students on their phones or computers. Just create an outline in the OPML format that is similar to a .txt file but preserves the outline’s hierarchy. While you can’t use Word or Google docs to create the initial outline, OPML Editor is a good freebee that works with Macs and PCs. After saving the outline to a DropBox online storage account, the student and play it back on the OutlinesOutloud iPhone app; sorry, there’s no Android app at the moment. They can not only listen to the outline start to finish, but can relisten to areas of weakness or loop the whole thing several times. The software costs $5.
