As practitioners I'm sure you will have tried out a number of online drawing tools and explored what they have to offer. If you haven't tried it check out Sketch Toy.
Sketch Toy is a free to use website offering a simple drawing interface but with a unique twist – the lines drawn can be made to appear as various degrees of shaky animations.
The canvas you are given has a texture that highlights this animated effect of shaky lines. The images created can be shared through a direct link. When people visit the link, they see the entire drawing made from start to finish, just like the user created it. Users can also download the image as a PNG file and share it but, of course, the animation effect would is lost.
P.S. the app offers a Chrome app as well.

P.P.S. With screen capture,it can be used to demonstrate maths or Science equations etc.

ruul. Screen ruler

ruul. Screen ruler | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

A fantastically simple on-screen ruler for lining up and measuring type, line height, strokes and just about anything on the web.


Ruul is a free to use browser extension for Google Chrome.


It enables Web designers to measure designs, that they find inspirational, in pixels.


Ruul lets users add an overlapping semi-transparent pixel measurements ruler onto the webpage they are viewing.


To add a ruler, users...
- click on the extension icon
- select the ruler colour they would like to use.
- align the ruler horizontally or vertically
- move it around one pixel at a time using the arrow keys on their keyboard.


Note: The mouse can also be used to click on the ruler and drag it.


To measure, users simply take down the reading from the ruler after placing it over the objects they want to measure.
