Part Ten Of The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly

| 0 comments

Here are several more sites to add to my lengthy list of The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly. These all meet the usual criteria, which you can read about in previous parts of this series.

Here they are:

DESIGN A (I DON’T REALLY KNOW HOW TO DESCRIBE IT): LiteBrite is its name, and students can create a multi-colored design, describe it, and then get its url address for posting on an online journal or blog.

CREATE AN HONEST JOHNNY: In another example of viral marketing, users can create and accessorize a virtual person called Honest Johnny, make him/her speak using the text-to-speech feature, and then email their creation for posting.

SEND A VIRTUAL BIRTHDAY CAKE: I just posted yesterday about virtually baking and sending a birthday cake along with burning candles.

CREATE YOUR OWN BABY QEE: Design and send your own virtual doll called a Baby Qee. Thanks to Linda DeVore for suggesting this site.

MAKE AN ONLINE POLL: Micropoll is a new web application that allows for quick and simple poll creation.

DRESS-UP A BEACON STREET GIRL: Beacon Street Girls appear to be some sort of popular series for tween girls (mine are older so I don’t keep track of these things). In this game you can dress one of them up, describe their outfit, and email your creation and description for posting on a blog or online journal. There are several other similar games linked to the same page, but I didn’t have much luck getting those email functions to work.

When I get around to it, I’ll be placing all these links on my website with other Examples of Student Work.

You might want to look at all of the other “The Best….” lists, too.
