WorkFlowy.com - Organize your brain.

WorkFlowy.com - Organize your brain. | academiPad | Scoop.it
WorkFlowy is an organizational tool that makes life easier. It's a surprisingly powerful way to take notes, make lists, collaborate, brainstorm, plan and generally organize your brain.
academiPad's insight:

My personal productivity-ninja-friend @bsippel introduced me to WorkFlowy - a dead simple and free to-do and outlining web app. It can help you organize personal to-dos, collaborate on large team projects, take notes, write research papers, keep a journal, and so much more.

Presentation.io | Sync presentations to all devices

Presentation.io | Sync presentations to all devices | academiPad | Scoop.it

Live broadcast your presentations to mobile devices, tablets and laptops of your audience - no matter whether you are in the same room or in different parts of the world. 

academiPad's insight:

I can see how this tool is good not only for giving online courses, but also for collaborating online. Your thesis advisor sits half around the world, but you want to go through a talk you are giving the next morning? No problem with presentation.io

Kickoff - Chat and Tasks for Teams

Kickoff - Chat and Tasks for Teams | academiPad | Scoop.it
academiPad's insight:

This new collaborative task management app for Mac and iOS looks interesting. Think of it like a blend between iChat and Wunderlist/Things. There are lots of these collaborative task management apps on the web, but they ask for monthly subscriptions. This one is a one-time payment. A large one with about $25, but only once.

 

I can see this be a good tool if you are working with co-authors in a different town, or for students working on group projects. Its only Apple so far, unfortunately.

Quip - Collaborative Writing

Quip - Collaborative Writing | academiPad | Scoop.it
academiPad's insight:

This new app ecosystem for collaborative writing might be interesting for working with co-authors on papers. Especially the integrated chat and an in-buiild checklist can be useful for larger co-writing projects in academia, although the maker of this app do not seem to have recognized this yet.

academiPad's insight:

The content curation (public and private) space is getting really crowded. I am no big fan of the very limited pinterest and prefer scoop.it. But Keep seems to be very worth checking out.

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

Thanks Robin, I'm going to try ;-)

LiveMinutes is a Free WebConferencing Solution for Everyday Meetings.
academiPad's insight:

The videos is one of the worst I have ever seen (skip the first two minutes), but the web app seems to be interesting if you are working with somebody in a different town / country / continent. It is basically a blend of skype, googledocs and online whiteboard. Really interesting information management tool!
