. Moodle is a class management site that allows teachers and students to manage assignments, monitor attendance and grades. It provides communication avenues through blogs chat and forums. I have used this site for several of my classes and I find it easy to navigate and very useful in monitoring my class work.
Mozilla FireFox I have found Firefox to be very useful and user friendly. It is also more secure than my old browser, IE6 (Internet Explorer 6). There are also many extensions available to enrich your browsing.
Google apps offer many useful applications that make my school work and group work easier.
However, I do find it frustrating at times because some features do not load on my laptop.
Some things I find irritating are the size of your spreadsheets (in particular) are limited to 1MB and google docs sometimes changes the format of documents loaded to google docs.
