Web 2.0 Tools

There are lots of “tools” available on the Internet for both students and faculty to use in the pursuit of learning. How do you choose? Do you just keep “Googling”?

What is your strategy for finding easy-to-use, online tools that help you with teaching and/or learning? I think it would be interesting to hear how other educators and/or students find tools that assist in their work.

I have tools that I like to use and I always like to share them with others.

These are my TOP FIVE PICKS:

  • Pho.to—an online image editing in your browser.
  • Jog the Web—a place to store a list of links that can be organized by topic, and it helps you better share, show and comment any web pages on the Internet. http://www.jogtheweb.com/
  • Voice Thread—provides a place to have group conversations around images, documents, videos and allows people to leave comments in 5 different ways. http://voicethread.com/
  • Audio Boo—record and upload audio to share with others. It is so easy to use too. http://audioboo.fm/
  • Jing—provides a way to take a picture or make a short video of what you see on your computer monitor and then share it. http://www.techsmith.com/jing/
