In yet another attempt to get at the enormous backlog I have of sites worth blogging about, I post a regular feature called “The Week In Web 2.0.” (you might also be interested in The Fifty Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2016). I also sometimes include tech tools or articles about them that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0 (look for the year-end addition of that “Best” list later this month):
Twitter has announced that, though they’re shutting down Vine, they are relaunching it as a new app called Vine Camera that works the same except for the fact that there won’t be a Vine “community.” You’ll be able to save your Vines and also share them on Twitter. These abilities should work fine for education. I’m adding this info to The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video Apps “Vine” & Instagram.
PixTeller is on The Best Tools For Creating Visually Attractive Quotations For Online Sharing list. They’ve just expanding their features to including online photo-editing. I’m now also adding it to The Best Sites For Online Photo-Editing & Photo Effects.
Tools To Create Infographics is a useful article from Voice Of America. Though it doesn’t share any tools that aren’t already on The Best Resources For Creating Infographics list, they do provide short-and-sweet descriptions of how to use the ones in their article. Thanks to Michelle Henry for the tip.
Revue is a new tool for creating email newsletters. It’s only free to use if you don’t have more than 200 subscribers, but it’s not very expensive if you have larger numbers. You can read more about it at TechCruch. I’m adding it to The Best Applications For Creating Free Email Newsletters.
