Feedback

We have received enthusiastic feedback from instructors:

  • “Enjoyed it. The students did not have to wait and take turns. The SKIES software allows two or more students to ask questions or post experimental results simultaneously. The instructor could manage his time better, after all the questions had been submitted.”
  • “Great interaction”
  • “I really like the SKIES software program. It enabled each person (high school student, teacher, or volunteer) to follow along with the lesson that the Caltech instructor was presenting.  It also was great for allowing the students to take pictures using the microscope attachment and uploading those pictures to SKIES, so that everybody else in the classroom could see their pictures of their fingertip, orange skin, chocolate chip cookie, leaf, etc.”
  • “Better form of collaboration”
  • “The final grades [in a class where SKIES was used] were astonishingly high – almost all A’s and A-pluses – the best I’ve seen in the 15 years I’ve taught the course.”

as well as students:

  • “We could all help each other learn better with the use of the cards on the SKIES app, we can quiz each other.”
  •  “Skies was excellent”
  • “Amazing”
  • “[I]t was easier to make question cards than to raise my hand because I’m shy so it was helpful.”
  • “It was great I loved seeing my classmates’ examples”
  • “It made learning feel personal”

    And where does one register for Skies and not word press?

  3. Hi,

    When I start my iPad skieslearn prompts me to update, and asks for a password and username, which I don’t remember. If I click cancel, it freezes. I want to delete it, but x doesn’t appear when I jiggle apps line on the others. I can’t delete it from the itunes, since itunes doesn’t have it. How do I delete this thing? which I don’t remember. If I click cancel, it freezes. I want to delete it, but x doesn’t appear when I jiggle apps line on the others. I can’t delete it from the itunes, since itunes doesn’t have it. How do I delete this thing?

      Hi Gabster, I can send you the username/password by email if you like — then you can finish the install and then delete it. Alternatively you can do a reset of your iPad (press power and home button together for 10 seconds), and it should let you delete it after that. Sorry for the inconvenience — Julius.
