Get Your Tools Ready


As we discussed in class today, over the course of the semester we'll be publishing work to the blog and working collaboratively in our learning. We'll all need to use word processors and spreadsheets and other software. In today's connected learning enviroment we can all use the same tools, for free, any time anywhere. You all have to sign up for the following free accounts:



I don't know which one is the best. Try them out and let me know which you prefer, and why, as you use them over the course of the semester. Some other free online tools you might like to use. You must sign up for the four tools above. These ones are optional:

  • lazybase.com (Lazybase allows anyone to design, create and share a database of whatever they like.)

  • thumbstacks.com (Thumbstacks.com is a site for making and sharing presentations on the web.)

  • empressr.com (Empressr is a new Ajax/Flash-based web application that lets you create, share and store presentations online.)
