Tech Tips

MyRoll
This app is free and available on iOS and Android. It is a photo-roll organizer that groups photos into “moments” based on time or event. It also recognizes which photos you view more often and displays your favorites more prominently. You can think of it like it auto-albums your pictures, then it’s easier to find what you’re looking for. You also can switch to a traditional view. It was recently featured by Business Insider in the App 100: The World’s Greatest Apps.
Moodle Renovation
Changes to Moodle will be taking place for fall 2015. Interested in the updates? Check out the ongoing blog that details Moodle updates now and in the future: blogs.butler.edu/moodleevolution.
