5 Great Organizational Tools for Teachers

Since the time Google shut down iGoogle, a whole bunch of web tools have emerged ( or were online but gained more prominence afterwards ) as alternatives to this service. iGoogle was my start page for a couple of years and I was really so much used to it that when Google finally closed it I was lost and it took me a couple of weeks till I got myself acquainted with another new star page.

The good thing about a start page is that it helps you orgnaize your bookmarks and the URLs that you visit so often. This helps you save time and renders your internet browsing more effective. Here are some web tools you can use as a start page. Check them out and let us know if you have other suggestions.

1- Symbaloo

This a great web service that lets you customize your start page the way you like. You can bookmark and save your web links into webmixes ( boards ) that can be both private or public.

My Link Cloud allows you to create several start pages where you can bookmark your favourite websites and web resources. You can change the look and feel of your start pages and make them visually appealing.
