  • Discover, access, organize and keep your professional resources in one convenient location. Utilizing Web 2.0 tools also allows you to update, share and collaborate in real time.
  • With so many choices, how do you know what’s BEST? What’s best is what works for you. What are you comfortable with? What do you understand? What skills are required? What kind of support? How much time do you have to put into it? Who is your audience? Can students / parents / colleagues easily access? (account creation, busy-ness, user interface) Understand what you want and what the tool offers. Is it the trifecta? (Web, PC, Mobile)
