In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth blogging about, 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 2015). I also sometimes include tech tools that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:
HoloKlip lets you…clip sections of YouTube videos. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Cutting-Out & Saving Portions Of Online Videos. I’ve just revised and updated that list.
Synap is a new easy tool for creating online quizzes. It will really be useful when there’s a large bank of user-created quizzes for teachers to draw upon. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Create Online Tests.
I’ve been hearing a lot of “buzz” about Versal, which lets teachers create online interactive resources. Even though you can do more than video with it, I’m going to add it to A Potpourri Of The Best & Most Useful Video Sites. I just completely revised and updated that list.
Screencastify looks like a great tool for making screencasts, though it only works in Chrome. Read more about it at Bill Ferriter’s blog. I’m adding it to The Best Tools For Making Screencasts, which I’ve also revised and updated.
The Complete Guide to Snapchat for Teachers and Parents is a useful post by AJ Juliani.
NoteBookCast is a simple online virtual whiteboard that can be used by many people at the same time. You can read a post at Richard Byrne’s blog to see a “how-to-use-it” video. I’m adding it to The Best Online Tools For Real-Time Collaboration. I recently updated and revised that entire list.
Speaking of Richard Byrne, he recently posted 7 Tools for Creating Multimedia Quizzes Compared in One Chart. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Create Online Tests, which I also recently revised and updated.
