Moodle is a very useful tool for both students and teachers.
It provides special features that allow students and teachers to
communicate and keep track of assignments, attendance, and
grades. Moodle also provides a chat room that allows
everyone in class to converse online regarding homework's
and projects. Moodle makes it easy to access for students to
find out what and when assignments are due.
Google has always been my go to search engine.
Personally I don’t use any other search engines. Google
provides easy to use applications, for instance I learned
from taking this class the use of the wonder wheel. The
wonder wheel breaks down your main topic in a wed like
form that branch out related subjects to your main topic,
making it easier and convenient to search. It is awesome!
Firefox is a free web browser
that is easy, fast, and simple.
Firefox is free to install that
provides full speed and security
for web browsing. Firefox offers
special features that allows you
to customize your web browser
to your personal style.
Prezi is a unique tool to utilize if you want something
beyond PowerPoint. Prezi is free to install for the basic
features but costly if you want more excitement to your
presentation . I find Prezi to be fancy and dramatic that
presents a lot of creative features you don’t see on
PowerPoint. However, it is very confusing and difficult to
navigate around. Prezi can be very time consuming if you
don’t use it often.
Slideshare is a new and unique tool that I’ve learned from
this course. Since I am a PowerPoint fan, I am able to
present my slides differently. Its quick and trouble-free,
simply upload your PowerPoint slides onto your slideshare
account and share it with your fellow peers and teachers. I
highly recommend everyone to try it out!
Boxnet is another practical
tool that I’ve learned in this
course. Boxnet is user friendly.
With Boxnet you are able to
share, manage, and access all
documents online. It is an
easy way to organize
documents whether it is small
or large into folders with easy
Picnik is personally one of my favorite tools for editing
photos. I love playing and editing photos for fun and with
this newly learned site I am able to try the many features
Picnik has to offer. It is a easy, quick, and fun way to edit
photos. I recommend everyone to give it a try!
Delicious is a tool that I find to be very useful for
everyone. It is user friendly and not difficult to navigate
around. Delicious provides users to organize important
sites that may be useful for future references. With just a
copy and paste of the URL, delicious makes it effortless to
save countless significant websites.
