  9. 9.   What:  Online photo editing software  Where:  https://www.photoshop.com/   Why:  When you need basic photo editing, but don’t have the budget to purchase a  professional photo editing software package. Also useful in training situations where you  want students to produce photos but don’t want to require them to purchase a product.   What:  Place to save notes, thoughts, tasks, photos, web sites, and ideas  Where:  http://www.evernote.com/   Why:  Useful tool to keep track of things for the trainer on the go. Available on mobile  devices such as iPhone, iPod Touch, Droid, and Blackberry for notetaking, web clipping, and  more.  What:  Online document sharing and collaboration  Where:  http://docs.google.com   Why:  Excellent for collaborative work on presentations, documents, and spreadsheets. In  addition, Google forms allows you to disseminate quick surveys and gather results in a  spreadsheet, which is likewise shareable.  What:  Place to create and manage targeted, or niche, social networks  Where:   http://www.ning.com/   Why:  Targeted social networks are becoming the next wave of the social network  revolution. Useful for organizing socially around a particular topic or training idea, Ning  offers a full range of social network activities within its own space.    8
  10. 10.   Sharing      What:  Web‐based RSS readers  Where:  http://www.bloglines.com/ , http://www.google.com/reader   Why:  Online sites to aggregate and view RSS feeds. Useful when using blogging in  training and education; you can pull RSS feeds of blogs and gather them in one place to re‐ share or to use for assessment/evaluation.    What:  Video sharing site  Where:  http://youtube.com   Why:  Useful for holding video to use in training and education; also good for finding  video that is able to be embedded in your content. Basic editing of video (audio track  replacement, captioning) is available on the site.    What:  Online photo sharing site that allows basic editing of photos  Where:  http://flickr.com   Why:  Useful for finding creative‐commons licensed content for use in education and  training, but also for keeping and holding a pool of photos around particular topics/ideas.     What:  Online social bookmarking site  Where:  http://delicious.com   Why:  Share and save bookmarks to sites across the web; makes bookmarks available via  any computer/browser. Good use in training/education is to tag relevant links in common;  thus, users get an ever‐growing pool of resources.  9

  12. 12.   Connection      What:  Microblogging platform    Where:  http://twitter.com   Why:  Useful for connecting with others in a training course, profession, or other interest  area. Also good for sharing and receiving quick tips or snippets of information around a  particular topic.  Good for connecting with others during times when traditional media  aren’t available.    What:  Online Social Networks  Where:  http://www.facebook.com, http://myspace.com   Why:  Connect and reconnect with others on these social networks. MySpace and  Facebook tend to have different audiences, but both are generally used in more of the  “social” sphere, e.g., friends from high school, etc. MySpace is additionally heavily used in  the entertainment industry, where Facebook is big at colleges and universities.    What:  Online Social Networks    Where:  http://linkedin.com, http://plaxo.com   Why:  Connect and reconnect with others on these social networks. LinkedIn and Plaxo  tend to be more professionally based networks commonly used in corporations and  business.         11
