Share this post:  
Below is a round-up of some interesting educational web tools I have been bookmarking in the course of the last two weeks. These are basically web tools that have been featured and reviewed by other edubloggers in different blogging platforms. Check out the list below and as always your feedback is more than welcome.

1- Glean

Glean is a platform that provides a wide variety of video lessons in education spanning various topics. You can use the search functionality to look for videos organized by topic, common core standards and teaching. Glean also allows you to pose your questions to the community for help with things you don't understand.

2- Presenter

Presenter helps you create nice visualizations of your ideas as simple as drag and drop. This is particularly helpful when creating interactive infographics and animations.

3- Groupiful

This is a great platform for promoting group work. It provides a set of tools to facilitate group work and enhance collaboration. Groupiful allows you to start a discussion, upload files, manage tasks, schedule events, and create notes.

5- Kuizza

Kuizza allows you to easily create quizzes and share them with others. You can also use it as a tool to garner student feedback around a given topic.

6- Quizbean

This is another cool web tool to use to create quizzes and assess your students. The basic free version alows you to create only 6 quizzes but you can go unlimited for $10 per month.

7- EduCanon

eduCanon is an online learning environment to build and share interactive video lessons. Teachers begin with any YouTube, Vimeo, or TeacherTube video content (screencasts, Khan Academy, Minute Physics, TED, NOVA, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students. By embedding activities that students engage with as the video progresses the content is segmented into digestible components - increasing student engagement and, through our analysis, informing the next day’s lesson planning.

8- Otter

Otter is a website that allows you to :
  • Accept digital homework assignments from your students. No more lost emails or forgotten papers.
  • Maintain a classroom calendar with class-specific tags.
  • Send classroom announcements to subscribed parents and students via email or text message.
  • Host your commonly needed files (Syllabi, homework examples, etc.)
9- MathDesk

MathDesk is a web tool that lets you create your own worksheets to visualize, interact with and explore the amazing world of mathematics.

10- Stiple

Stipe is a tool that brings life to your photos. You can make your images interactive by tagging them with videos, maps and people who were there and you can also include links to blogs and websites. This reminds me of the popular ThingLink.
