  • Nicenet
    • Nicenet set out to provide a tool that is very easy to adopt and use . The ICA requires only a web browser and a connection to the Internet, so there is no software to install or servers to manage.
    • The simple format of the system is highly intuitive with a very low learning curve, requiring no formal training.
    • The interface has low graphical content to make it easy to use through a standard modem. Such a model allows teachers to incorporate the ICA based on their personal pedagogical priorities rather than institutional infrastructure

  • Tools for Teaching EFL Weblog or simply blog : - A frequently updated website consisting of dated entries arranged in reverse chronological order so the most recent post appears first . - Are published by individuals and their style is personal and informal. - Simple and free publishing tools . Since anybody with a net connection can publish their own weblog, there is great variety in the quality, content, and ambition of weblogs. - A weblog may have anywhere from a handful to tens of thousands of daily readers.

  • Tools for Teaching EFL Wiki: - server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. - hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly. - unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself. Like many simple concepts, "open editing" has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users .
