In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth , I’ve recently begin a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” (you might also be interested in The Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2013):

10 video calling apps to connect you with family and friends this Christmas is from The Next Web. I’m adding it to A Potpourri Of The Best & Most Useful Video Sites.

Curious.com lets you create, share and view video lessons. I’m adding it to the same list.

Vobok is an iPhone app that lets you easily record thirty second audio messages. You can read about it in the San Francisco Chronicle here. It might be a useful tool for English Language Learners, but I haven’t tried it out yet. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Beginning iPhone Users Like Me.

(By the way, I’m also adding The Verge at work: making perfect pictures on your iPhone to the same list)

Quiz Up looks like a neat iPhone game. You can read more about it in The New York Times. It’s similar to the games on The Best Online Games Students Can Play In Private Virtual “Rooms” list, except played on an iPhone.
