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 50 Best Web 2.0 Applications For Education In 2017). I also sometimes include tech tools or articles about them that might not exactly fit the definition of Web 2.0:

The BBC just made 16,000 sound effects downloadable and usable. You can read more about it at Open Culture. I’m adding it to The Best Places To Get Royalty-Free Music & Sound Effects.

Motion Comics lets you create a comic that can function like a slideshow with music, like this one.  Unfortunately, you have to upload any of the images or sound you want to use – they don’t have a “bank” you can draw from.  I’m still adding it to The Best Ways To Make Comic Strips Online.

Vinstant looks pretty interesting. Basically, you mix and match different video clips in order to tell a story. The app isn’t public yet, and, though they say they’ll have a web-based version, that’s not available, either. But I think this could be very useful for English Language Learners.
