Part Sixty-One Of The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly

| 0 comments

The first part of this post is my usual introduction to this series. If you’re familiar with it already, just skip down to the listing of new sites…

Here’s the latest installment in my series on The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly. As you may remember, in order to make it on this list, the web tool has to:

* be easily accessible to English Language Learners and/or non-tech savvy computer users.

* allow people to create engaging content within minutes.

* host the user’s creation on the site itself indefinitely, and allow a direct link to be able to be posted on a student or teacher’s website/blog to it (or let it be embedded). If it just provides the url address of the student creation, you can either just post the address or use Embedit.in , a free web tool that makes pretty much any url address embeddable.

* provide some language-learning opportunity (for example, students can write about their creations).

* not require any registration.

You can find previous installments of this series with the rest of my “The Best…” lists at Websites Of The Year. Several hundred sites have been highlighted in these past lists. You might also want to take a look at the first list I posted in this series — The Best Ways For Students (And Anyone Else!) To Create Online Content Easily, Quickly, and Painlessly.

I’ll also be publishing an “all-time best” list sometime this year.

Here are the newest additions:

CREATE A WEBPAGE EASILY: Instablogg is a super-easy, super-fast way for students, teachers or anybody to create a webpage, and it doesn’t require registration.

MAKE A DANCER PERFORM A WORD: With Dance Writer 2, you type a word and a dancer will “perform” it. You can share the url to your “joint” creation.

CREATE A “CRUSH”: This one’s a little weird. At Scholastic’s Create A Crush, you can design the person of your dreams and share what you created with your friends. Thanks to Michelle Henry for the tip.

Additional suggestions are always welcome.
