Who was it developed by?The idea for ‘EduApps’ came about when a small team from the JISCRegional Support Centre Scotland North & East (disbanded in July 2011)discussed the use of portable applications and how freely available ‘apps’could be used to support learners with additional needs. The concept of usingportable applications within an educational environment was not new –members of the team had used portable applications in previous teachingpositions and there were commercially available examples in the marketplace.
