    Final version - Free Windows 8 programming ebook


    Cover - Windows 8 Programming bookLess than a week ago, I wrote about the free Windows 8 programming ebook "Programming Windows 8 Apps with HTML, CSS and JavaScript" from Microsoft Press. The link I gave then was to the second version, but five nights have passed, and Microsoft Press have now released the full and finished version.

    So if you're interested in Windows 8 programming, then here's the book to read. It will teach you how to develop apps for the new version of Windows, and get them running on existing desktops, laptops and notebooks, as well as slates including the new Microsoft Surface.

    Given the size of the book (800+ pages) and the fast and fluid nature of the subject, then it will have been a remarkable achievement to get it finished and out within a week of the Windows 8 launch, so I'm sure Kraig Brockschmidt will be having a long lie down in a dark room now.

    Right now the download is a PDF book, but EPUB and MOBI formats are coming, for people who want to get it onto their Kindle, Nook etc

    Updated - Free Windows 8 programming ebook


    imageThose nice people at Microsoft Press released an update in August to their free ebook – it’s a preview version of “Programming Windows 8 Apps with HTML, CSS and JavaScript”. And it seems perfect timing to highlight it (being absolutely transparent, I didn't read it when it came out, but I've started to read it this week, as I'm spending more time talking to people about building Windows 8 apps for education)

    It’s the perfect guide to Windows 8 applications programming, and gives you the whole story for creating Windows 8 apps. As it’s only a second preview version, the whole thing isn’t yet there – so far there's 12 of a planned 17 chapters, along with a download of companion content (code samples etc)

    If you’re interested in getting started, or you’ve got students that you know will want to have a go, then this is a great book to download and to share.

    And, before you go beetling off to start writing code, can I also recommend reading building an education app for Windows 8 is about designing an experience, before writing code beforehand too.

    Learn More You can either download it in PDF directly, or go and read a bit more about it on the Microsoft Press blog.

    NOTE: There's now the final version of the Windows 8 programming ebook - see here
    Bonus: Here’s a long list of more free technical ebooks from Microsoft Press.

    Building an education app for Windows 8 is about designing an experience, before writing code


    As the interest in Windows 8 builds, with new Windows 8 devices being revealed weekly, and new education apps for Windows 8 appearing in the Windows Store, I'm having regular conversations with people about developing new apps for education users (typically teachers or students) for Windows 8. Often the conversation isn't about the technical detail of producing an app, but about the purpose of proposed app – especially about how it will help a student or teacher to do something. Often, when planning a Windows Store app, it makes sense to think less about what features should be included and more about the experience you want to provide your users. Of course, there's plenty of advice published already (like Making great Windows Store apps) but here's an extra set of thoughts about approaching the design of an education app for Windows 8.

    Decide what your app is great at

    This is good advice – it's much more meaningful to say "my app will help teachers track the learning progress of all of the students in their class for the year" than "I'm writing a markbook app" – you can imagine how the former will help you focus on solving a problem for a teacher, rather than just build an app

    Decide what user activities to support

    Think about the flow of activities that a user is going to need to do to achieve their goal. If their goal is to see progress, how do you help them see that? Sure, entering marks in a markbook is a step on the journey, but it isn't the goal. What do they need to see – progress of their class; progress of individual students; which areas the whole class is struggling with; which areas a single student or group of students need reinforcement on.

    Decide what features to include

    One of the lessons about building apps in Windows 8 is that a bunch of the features you might want to give your user is already provided by Windows 8 – which means that if you want to provide a way for a teacher to share information – for example to email a chart to a student, or email a parent – then you can use the built-in facilities in Windows 8 to do it, rather than creating a unique way (especially when you don't know what ways of sharing each teacher is going to prefer – the other apps installed will be able to add more sharing options on top of the core ones in Windows 8 – meaning that you don't have to go back and re-develop your software every time a new social network comes along!).

    Decide how to monetize your app

    Although this is a whole subject in it's own right (Do you go for free, trial, paid apps? Do you use in-app advertising to allow you to give the app away for free?) there's plenty of advice on this at Plan for Monetization

    Design the UI for your app

    There's tons of detail on this on the MSDN network, starting at Design Guidance for Windows Store apps, including some project design templates, as well as some great advice on touch interaction and navigation patterns.

    Make a good first impression

    In the app culture, it's amazing how quick and easy it is to install – and then un-install an app. In the early days of your app, you're unlikely to get thousands of users recommending it to their peers, so that app has to have an attractive experience – a splash screen that's attractive and fast, and a first-launch experience that helps users understand what they can do with the app. And don't forget too that most users will see your tile on the Windows Start screen more than the app itself – so having a tile that updates itself with status or information messages is a way of re-engaging users. In the case of a markbook app, how about having a tile that tells you when you're ahead of your target with your students – or a live tile that scrolls through the names of students that haven't had a mark updated for the last two weeks?  

    Learn MoreAdvice on these areas, and others, is detailed over on the Windows Store apps Dev Centre, in the "Planning Windows Store apps" article

    As a bonus, in the video below, David Chou, who's one of our developer evangelists, talks through some of the concepts of building well-designed apps that create a consistent experience for users – so that as they move between different apps from different publishers, students and teachers can have a familiar experience, without having to learn new techniques to navigate different apps. Although this might seem like an easy thing to do, it could be potentially frustrating for users and developers, especially when you consider your user might be using a touch-enabled slate without a keyboard, or a conventional laptop with keyboard and trackpad, or a huge monitor with a standard desktop computer with keyboard and mouse. The design advice published is there to help you build a single app that works across all of those different devices, rather than having to have multiple versions for different devices.

    If you're not a developer, but a user or a teacher, the video is still interesting, as it helps you to understand how so many different apps doing so many different things, can still be easy to use.

    Combining Moodle with OneNote and SkyDrive to raise standards


    Icons_teacher_blueThere's a case study from the UK that I'd recommend reading. It's the story of a college that has enhanced their learning management system – Moodle – with integration Microsoft's OneNote to improve assessment and feedback processes for students and teachers. And their experience is that the system – a combination of Moodle and OneNote - has helped with raising student completion rates in courses:


    Business Need

    Eastleigh College’s Computer Sciences lecturing team wanted to provide an up-to-date and highly vocational experience to their students, whilst having an easy solution for sharing notes and PowerPoint slides to the class. Microsoft OneNote and the Microsoft Interactive Classroom add-in for PowerPoint were found to be a very beneficial system for the staff and students to easily collaborate on work. A combination of Office Web Apps and SkyDrive, a set of services and software that enables users to manage their files online in a simple yet secure repository for resources, was chosen for its level of integration with other Microsoft products.

    In 2010, the Computer Science department were using Moodle, a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), which is used throughout the college. Moodle provided a system that enabled resources to be shared with learners both in college and from home, a facility the college makes great use of. However, the Computer Science staff found Moodle 1.9 to be limited in some respects and in particular the work flows for assessment were causing problems for staff and students. Under the old department system, a learner would submit written assessments by uploading them into Moodle. The lecturer would assess, mark and provide feedback via a form on Moodle, which the learner could then read to gain feedback. If, however, the lecturer asked for changes or additional evidence to be submitted, the student had to upload a completely new document and the lecturer had to complete the feedback form again. In some cases this destroyed the previous relevant and valuable feedback.

    So although many of the features of Moodle are valuable to Eastleigh College, the Computer Science department were looking for an easy solution to improve the ease of use and comprehensiveness of assessing, allowing the Lecturers to share notes and PowerPoint slides to the class.


    Microsoft OneNote was chosen by the department as an electronic portfolio system. OneNote 2010 notebooks, shared via SkyDrive, enabled learners to organise their notes, embed evidence files, including video and other formats, all in one central location. When this was shared with the lecturer, comments and feedback could be written directly onto the OneNote document adjacent to the evidence. The learner would then see these comments as soon as they opened their OneNote portfolio, and the feedback would be in context with their supplied evidence. Students could therefore adjust their work immediately as directed, without having to re-share or upload a new submission.

    The Computer Science department trialled a number of systems with students, including Google Docs, SkyDrive, iCloud and Ubuntu One, but ultimately made the decision to go with SkyDrive due to its level of integration with a range of Microsoft products. The college found that SkyDrive provided a simple yet secure repository for resources that could be shared to both individual students and whole groups with ease. The students could share their documents with one or more lecturers or even other students when group work was required.


    In addition to changing working practices to use OneNote alongside Moodle, the college is also using the Microsoft Interactive Classroom add-in, which allows lecturers to create PowerPoint Decks, and collaborate with students in real time. All the slides from the deck are visible to the student in separate OneNote pages and the students are able to take notes directly onto their OneNote page containing the current slide in the presentation. If a Lecturer writes on the interactive whiteboard, this text is also visible on the OneNote page, meaning students get a copy of all the notes available during a lecture. This is then available to the student in his/her OneNote portfolio for later revision while writing assignments or uploading evidence.

    How it helped the college

    The result was a flexible electronic portfolio for students, which resulted in the college having a much better overview of students' work, and to be able to share that work with other authorities – for example, with external assessors and examiners. And the ability to both share online, and synchronise files for offline use, means that group collaboration is now possible.

    The combination of SkyDrive and OneNote also enabled the department to share calendars, which were used to record the timetables of all learner groups and lecturers in the department. As SkyDrive can be accessed anywhere in the world and using any internet enabled device, such as Windows Phone, iOS devices and Windows 8 tablets, learners had no excuse of not being aware of any timetable changes.

    As Craig Chambers, Course Manager at Eastleigh College put it:

      I genuinely think that Microsoft Technologies have contributed to the improved completion rates achieved in our BTEC ‘Computer Science’ courses.

    Update 4: Windows 8 apps for education


    After last week's launch of Windows 8 and the Microsoft Surface, it's no surprise that there's more interest in education apps. And there's plenty of new Windows 8 apps for education being added to the Windows Store. I've actually got too many for one blog post, so I'm working on another blog post even as I hit 'publish' on this one…

    For all my recommended Windows 8 Education Apps, follow this link, which has a list of 20+ apps for you

    More free Windows 8 Education apps from the Windows Store

    As with my previous blog posts (Updates one, two and three) you can click on the Link to see each app in the Windows Store, and if you're running Windows 8, you can then just install from there.



    CareerPath hasn't been designed specifically for students or education users, but as soon as I saw I could see how it would be incredibly useful in High School, TAFE or University. What it does it to allow you to explore career paths, based on a database of 30,748,234 datapoints about careers progression.

    Students can search on a particular career choice, and position, and see how people have historically got into that role, and where they have gone on afterwards.


    The really clever thing that I found is that by connecting it with my LinkedIn account, it would offer me suggestions of people who could provide coaching or mentoring for my next career step. As university students start to build their social connections (via Twitter, LinkedIn and Yammer) geared towards employment, then they'll start to get more value from their existing and potential connections and from CareerPath. And then the final piece of the puzzle is that it helps you find job openings locally in specific career roles.



    Kno Reader

    Kno is a digital textbook reader which has been specifically designed for students and courses, rather than being a generic ebook reader like the Kindle and Book Reader apps I'd previously mentioned. The kind of things that Kno makes possible are:

    • Automatic flashcard creation
    • Smart Links, to interactive support materials, videos, interactive modules etc
    • Shared study through social sharing – either student-student, or teacher-student
    • Personal study journal
    • Advanced search that allows you to search across books, courses, terms, notes etc

    Find out more on the Kno website, or try out the web-based client for Kno on your current PC




    Attendance is one of hopefully many apps that we'll see that help teachers perform standard tasks – in this case, to take a class register. You may already have a system for this that integrates closely with your student management system, but find this useful for specific scenarios in TAFE or universities, or for school trips or sports activities (imagine if you put this onto a Windows 8 touch-based slate for a trip out of school, with students' names, photos and mobile numbers).


    It's core features include:

    • Take Attendance – Mark students as Present, Absent or Late
    • Notes – For each class session, you can store a note for each student and the entire session
    • Calendar – Switch between class sessions and create new ones using a calendar
    • Messaging – Send an email message to all students in a class, all the students that are flagged in a class, or an individual student
    • Student Details – See how a student is doing in each class, with their attendance information displayed in a calendar
    • Random Student – Pick a student at random. Great for calling on student during class for questions and greater interactivity
    • Group Students – Place students into groups, either automatically at random or manually. You can create multiple sets of groups that are saved by the applications, for example, one for each project

    Bonus thought for software developers: This developer obviously got in early and reserved the name 'Attendance' in the Windows Store for their app. Have you registered your names yet? You might want to get in early to get the obvious, search-friendly name reserved for you app idea!




    This is an app created by Amity University in India, and it's a great one to look at if you think that your school/TAFE/university needs an app. It provides students with access to personalised information, such as their class schedule, class information, information from the student system (like attendance, assessment results) and university news. And it also contains standard information, such as contact info, an online directory, a news feed and noticeboard


    And, as you can see above, it looks very cool too!

    Update 3: Windows 8 Education apps in the Windows Store


    NB You can see a complete list of my previous recommendations of new Windows 8 apps for teachers and students on the Windows 8 Education Apps page, that I published on this blog earlier, and which I update regularly. And all of the apps I've highlighted so far are free.

    Windows 8 Education apps I noticed this week

    NASA Be A Martian Windows 8 tile
    NASA – Be A Martian

    Windows Store link for NASA's Be A Martian
    As the team at NASA say "Space exploration is no longer limited to the intrepid few, but is open to us all as members of a spacefaring society. Be part of exploration and discovery in these times, and personally contribute to the expansion of human knowledge for all of us now, and as a legacy for those who follow."

    Screenshot of Be A Martian for Windows 8The app offers students ways to take part in discovery and learn about NASA's Mars missions, and view Mars images and videos, and read the mission news. The app delivers the latest mission images and updates from Curiosity, allows students to ask NASA questions about Mars, and find out more about the people behind the mission.


    My Study Life for Windows 8


    My Study Life

    Windows Store link for My Study Life
    My Study Life is a planner for students, teachers and lecturers. It is a combination of the Windows 8 app and the My Study Life website. It's designed to make life easier by storing classes, tasks (assignments, homework, revision) and exams in the cloud, making study connected activities available online and offline (through the website online and the Windows 8 app). Having spent a little bit of time with it, it seems an incredibly powerful app, with some smart features. For example, two-week timetables can be tricky to setup in some software or conventional calendar software, but is a doddle in this. And, because it uses the Windows 8 live tiles, it means that students will see upcoming activities and assignments on their Windows 8 Start screen.

    The list of features highlighted by the developers include:

    • Organize your study life like never before
    • Get a customised view of your day ahead
    • Keep track of task progress and revision for upcoming exams
    • Keep your study life up to date across multiple devices with StudySync
    • Get notified of classes, tasks and exams whilst not using the app
    • Glance and go information with smart live tile updates

    Given the scope and professionalism of this app, I can't believe this will stay as a free app for long!

    Windows 8 ebook Readers

    Over the next couple of weeks I'm planning to spend a bit of time looking into the ebook software for Windows 8, and highlight those that have features that are especially useful for etextbooks, as opposed to just normal book reading. But until I've completed that, here's a couple of ebook readers for Windows 8 that I think are useful:


    Book Reader

    Windows Store link for Book Reader
    This is a reader for ePub files (one of the number of different ebook formats) that will read books that are not DRM protected. What that means is that you can't use it to read digitally protected books, such as the ones you can buy from iTunes and Kindle. However, what this will allow you to do is to download free ePub format books from places like Project Gutenberg (which offers 40,000 free ebooks)  and


    Kindle Reader

    Windows Store link for Kindle Reader
    The Kindle app allows you to read your Kindle library on your Windows 8 slate or laptop. And because it uses the Kindle sync service, your library is automatically synced to your device, and you it automatically knows which book you're currently reading, and which page you last got to. So it means you can read on one device, and pick up where you left off on your next one. I love this, as I have one of the old Kindle eReaders too, so I can read the same book on the train on my Windows 8 slate, and on the sofa at home with my Kindle. The first time I loaded it, I was amazed at just how many ebooks I'd bought, when it showed my whole library on the screen, which went on for pages and pages. (For the eagle eyed, yes I share my Kindle with my daughter)

    Update 2: Windows 8 Education apps in the Windows Store



    I thought this week I'd highlight three Windows 8 education apps that have been created by universities -

    DePaul Windows 8 app 

    DePaul University – College of Computing and Digital Media

    Windows Store link for DePaul University Windows 8 app
    The DePaul College of Computing and Digital Media Windows Store App enables students to keep up to date with CDM news & events, courses, professors, and computer lab availability. It contains information for searching for and contacting staff, finding computer labs and their availability, and information on each of the courses offered

    SSES Windows 8 app 

    Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship

    Windows Store link for SSES Windows 8 app
    The Stockholm School of Entrepreneurship has created an app that acts as a shop front for their four member institutions, by making some of their content accessible to a wider audience.  As well as a news feed, which comes from their existing official RSS feed on their website, there's also information on their staff and faculty, events and recordings of lectures and talks. It's the video section, enabled from their YouTube feed and favourites, that grabbed my attention, as one of the first set I saw was a series of talks from Hans Rosling (of TED talk fame), and that lost me a few hours as I listened to more of his wisdom.

    Stanford University Windows 8 app 

    Stanford University

    Windows Store link for Stanford University Windows 8 app
    The Stanford University app is a well designed app, that looks very smooth, and contains tons of content, mainly in the form of recorded lectures and talks. They have a range of featured talks, with attention grabbing titles, including:

    • Donald Knuth: All Questions Answered
    • Good Boss, Bad Boss: A peek inside the minds of the Best (and Worst)
    • Strategic Innovation: Design Thinking in Business

    And then a series of topic-based sections:

    • Innovation
    • Leadership
    • Computer Science and Security
    • Engineering and Technology
    • Project Management
    • Risk Management

    For each of these topics, there's between five and 10 hours of content available.

    Update 1: Windows 8 Education apps in the Windows Store


    Since last time, that I've installed some more apps, so here's my additional recommended education apps for Windows 8:



    Windows Store link for Mathrathon

    It's a simple maths game – you're shown two numbers along with a simple addition or subtraction sign, and the answer. All you need to do is to click Correct or Wrong. Mathrathon creates 60 random questions (and the most difficult I got was 143-87=22). Sounds simple? Well, turns out it's a lot trickier than you imagine, and it's actually turned into quite a competitive challenge amongst a group at the office.
    As this is listed in Games, not in Education, it's also a reminder to check that category too for great learning games.


    SAS Flash Cards

    Windows Store link for SAS Flash Cards

    This is a flash card app with a great list of additional things that are good for teachers as well as students. Probably the best one is that you can create your own flash cards by uploading a spreadsheet. I could imagine that would make it much easier for a teacher to create flash cards to match their lesson plans. And the second handy addition is that, in Quiz mode, the results can be emailed – so that students could send their results back to a teacher, which would be great for assessment of/for learning.



    Windows Store link for QuickMath
    QuickMath is a simple app for improving your calculation knowledge. It presents you with a calculation of two numbers from 0 to 99 which you have to multiply. After you submit the result the app shows if your answer was correct or wrong. To be honest, this turned out to be quite tricky for me to do, but made me think quite hard for the mental maths tricks I could use to get the answer more quickly.


    Viewer for Khan Academy

    Windows Store link for Viewer for Khan Academy
    This is an independently developed video player for educational videos from Khan Academy, which was developed by Joel Martinez as a Coding4Fun Community Project.

    New Lenovo Windows 8 tablets and laptops


    A month ago I wrote about a dozen new Windows 8 devices – laptops, tablets and All-In-Ones running Windows 8 and Windows RT – that were being previewed before the big day on 26th October when Windows 8 is officially released. It means that as a education user thinking about what devices teachers and students could be using for next academic year, there's a huge range of possible choices that are popping up. It means that you can choose your priorities based on each student groups' specific needs – for example, for younger students you might want tablets with great touch interfaces, and for older students you may want a traditional laptop design, and then for high-school and university students, perhaps you're looking for a convertible that's equally capable as both a touch tablet and a keyboard-driven laptop. And there's also choices available depending on what software choice you need for your users – for example, do you need to run all of your existing Windows software, or would your choice be to have a device that will only need to run the new Windows 8 software?

    Well since last month the news has continued to trickle out from other manufacturers about what's coming, and overnight it was Lenovo's turn to take to the stage with panache.

    Lenovo Convertible modesThey've announced a quartet of 'convertibles' – where the screens can flip around 360 degrees, so that you can run them in tablet mode, laptop mode, 'stand' mode and 'tent' mode. In a classroom, that would give lots of different ways of using them for individual students at a desk, on a table, or on their lap; collaborative learning tasks; or teaching small groups.

    And the other big news for education users is that battery life has taken a big jump – up to 16 hours on some of these new devices!

    Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11 The Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga has two different versions:

      Yoga 13 -  a 13.3" screen, with Intel i7 processors, and which runs full Windows 8. This has got a battery life of up to 8 hours.

        Yoga 11 – an 11.6" screen, and an ARM-based processor, which runs Windows RT. The battery life on this one is up to 13 hours.
        Lenovo IdeaTab LynxAnd then there's the IdeaTab Lynx, which is a tablet and a laptop together – as a tablet, you have an 11.6" screen and an Intel processor, running full Windows 8. In this mode, you'd basically run in full touch mode. But if you add the keyboard dock, you've then got up to 16 hours battery life (because the dock contains an extra hidden battery) and a full keyboard – so you can run it as you would any normal laptop too.

        You can read the Lenovo press release here, but for more product details, I'd recommend reading the product info on the Lenovo website, where they show the product features side-by-side, so that you can see all four models together on a single page.
