Eight years ago, in another somewhat futile attempt to reduce the backlog of resources I want to share, I began this occasional “Ed Tech Digest” post where I share three or four links I think are particularly useful and related to…ed tech, including some Web 2.0 apps.
Here are this week’s choices:
Flya looks mildly interesting – it lets you compose multimedia online articles. It doesn’t have many features now, but could be useful in the future as they add more.
Meet Enhancement Suite offers some… enhancements to Google Meet. It could be helpful if you’re using Google Meet in your remote teaching (which, for some reason, our district won’t let us use).
ZipCall is yet another new online video conferencing tool. In the face of the pandemic, these are being developed fast and furiously, and I just don’t have time to check each one out. If you do, let me know what you think of it.
Kallu is a too for voice only conference calls.
Google has just unveiled something they’re calling YouTube Video Builder. It looks like it’s a fairly automatic tool for creating video advertisements of 6or 15 seconds each. It’s in beta, so you have to apply for access. I haven’t gotten “in” yet, but I’ve embedded a video about it below. I periodically have students create video advertisements (for example, to illustrate the use of fallacies), so it might or might not be a tool worth exploring for education.
