Trapit is a new web tool that lets you create a regularly updated personalized newspaper (or a “trap”) on any topic you want. It’s very easy to create “traps” and it has a very accessible and attractive interface — my students would be able to easily use it. The only negative I could see was there didn’t seem anyway to make your traps public, though you could share items that appeared in your traps. Perhaps I was missing it, though.

It’s not open to the public yet, though Read Write Web, where I read about it and which has a post that describe it much more completely than I have, has five hundred invitations available. Go to their post and you can find the link.

I’m adding Trapit to The Best Sites For Creating Personalized “Newspapers” Online.
