Translations that happen continuously as you compose

I guess most of us still use Google Translate when it comes to getting accurate translations of foreign language text. It's not too difficult to do except that it takes a few click and pastes and then there's the question of how much text you can translate at any one time, of course. So when an app like this one for iOS comes along, it does make the regular translator sit up and take notice. Translation Cheki takes the cut and paste hassle out of translation by having the app running constantly in the background so all your need to do is to copy the text and Cheki does the rest of the ...  More

Move into the 21st Century with this next gen lesson planner for teachers of all kinds.

The image that immediately comes to mind when thinking of planning and preparing teaching lessons is of the kindly teacher, laboriously trudging through large amounts of paper and mapping out the direction of the upcoming lesson. Oh, hang on...that was a Dickens book i was reading. Well, its either that or you can update it to the 20th Century by imagining the same scenario with its modern day equivalent - Excel spreadsheets and Word documents. Now it's time to move on from those efficient but bad old days and move into the next generation of lesson planning. Common Core is a great new ...  More

Find out of school activities easier and realize your true potential

It seems like a parent's life takes a bit of a  back seat as soon as a child comes along and takes up the majority of their time. Trying to further yourself with classes and courses can turn into a bit of a nightmare. Half the problem isn't necessarily with the harried parent though.  Quite often the problem lies with poor website information and badly organized companies who fail to deliver the information that you need. Nurturize is a new search engine application designed for parents that makes it easier to search and find the classes and courses they need for both them and ...  More

If only Brian Wilson had this music app when he created Pet Sounds

I've listened to a lot of music in my lifetime and I think I can pick a bum note as well as anyone but, by no stretch of the imagination, could I be regarded as an expert on the more technical side of music. So when I came across this new music learning application, it took me quite a while to realize what it actually does.

In other words, it cuts out the bum ...  More

A superior learning management system to evaluate and train your staff

Staff training and evaluation used to be a quite labor-intensive and time consuming activity and generally used to involve bringing in people from outside the business who were trained in the process. This is disruptive for your staff as well as being somewhat costly. While this may be fine for multinationals it doesn't necessarily suit the budget of the smaller organization. SkyPrep is a new cloud-based, online LMS (Learning Management System) application that is designed to train and test your employees simply and easily. Upload all your source material, create tests and discover how ...  More

Train your small business like the big boys

Things are changing for the  better for small business. In the past there has been a bit of a defeatist attitude from them when comparing their opportunities of bettering themselves and their workers against a larger organization. When it came to training staff, the argument has always been that it was too expensive and took up too much time so a more ad hoc approach was taken up. But if the small business person is canny, they can find everything they want as apps and quite often for little on no cost. TalentLMS is one such app that will be of great benefit. This cloud-based ...  More

Make learning times tables a lot more fun

While no one wants to rob kids of their childhood years there is little doubt that the earlier they start learning the better. And, while many parents spend a lot of time reading to their children and starting them off on the road to learning simple words, it's often math that gets left behind. You only have to look at some of the Asian countries who grasp the math concept far quicker than their western counterparts to see how important it is later on in life. Back in the 'old days' times tables were learned on a rote basis with children remembering tables by endlessly speaking...one two ...  More

Learn all things Linux for amateurs and pros

I have just been reading the Malcolm Gladwell book "Outliers" which talks about the lengths that Bill Gates and Steve Jobs went to in their pursuit to learn all things computer back in the seventies and eighties. They were lucky. These days, the computer is thought of in the same way as the brain, it seems - the rule has been that you don't mess with it. But it's not quite so daunting as it appears. Linux Academy is a cloud-based learning application that offers interactive video courses to discover all you need to know about the Linux operating system and learn how to easily rebuild your ...  More
