OneNote Class Notebook Creator enhances learning in the classroom

43

Microsoft has released an interactive teaching and learning tool called OneNote Class Notebook Creator, which works in a similar way to OneNote allowing students and teachers to type, ink, and save clippings to their notebooks. Where OneNote Class Notebook Creator shines is that it creates a collaborative teaching and learning environment where the teacher could set up a notebook for each student in the class and monitor learning and engagement of each student through their notebooks, distribute digital handouts to all students, and setup a space for students to collaborate.

Duet, an addictively challenging Windows Phone game, is your myAppFree deal of the week

26

Duet from TMSALOFT is a frustratingly challenging Windows Phone game where you have to guide a pair of rotating orbs around various objects as they fall from the top of the screen.

While it's not the official version of the game (which isn't available for Windows Phone), it is still a fun time waster of a game. Duet is also the myAppFree deal of the week.

This is why Microsoft keeps 'starting over' with Windows Phone

640

Over the weekend, an article appeared on Digital Trends entitled "Microsoft needs to stop starting over with Windows Phone". The commentary in question put forth the idea that Microsoft is rebooting Windows Phone a third time with Windows 10 in 2015 and that this is an issue. The odd reasons cited for this being a problem span from the OS being inconsistent to "driving app developers and users crazy".

The Digital Trends article is flawed in many ways, but I believe this is, once again, a perception issue that is probably not uncommon in tech media, especially ones that do not live and breathe Microsoft news. For that reason, I would like to articulate a more accurate position on the changes Microsoft has gone through in the last few years.

Warframe review – the excellent *free* alternative to Destiny on Xbox One

93

A few weeks back, Bungie finally released its first post-Halo game under the Activision label: Destiny. Destiny revolves much more around completing missions and hunting for loot cooperatively with friends than Halo, with far less narrative driving players forward.

Everyone knows about Destiny, but did you know the Xbox One has another cooperative action game with just as much content and even more features at a fraction of the price? Warframe is a free to play third-person action-shooter, similar to Destiny and multiplayer classics like Phantasy Star Online. With tons of missions and playable characters, full clan support, and a very fair free to play model, Warframe has become one of the Xbox One games I just can't put down.
