Piktochart is easy to work with and creates a fair Infographic. I still prefer to hire an art director. It's worth the money to have an intelligent designer with you :-)

Formerly known as WallWisher, Padlet is a cool web app which allows anyone to easily create, share and publish multimedia contents with extreme ease.


Padlet provides an empty canvas on which you can upload and freely position any image, link, video or file you want. Actually you have two options for layout: a) Stream (as in a blog) and b) Freeform.


Your final composition can be published as a public page, shared on social media or embedded fully inside your website or blog.


Padlet works across all types of devices and screens.



Free to use.

André Manssen's curator insight, March 13, 2013 2:52 PM

Vroeger heette deze leuke webtool "Wallwisher", een gratis digitaal prikbord en heel leuk om in de klas te gebruiken.

Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, March 14, 2013 5:11 AM

Mi limito a tradurre in italiano quanto scritto da Robin Good: Precedentemente conosciuto come WallWhisher, Padlet è una webapp che consente a chiounque di realizzare, condividere e pubblicare facilmente  contenuti multimediali. 

Padlet fornisce uno spazio nel quale è possibile caricare e posizionare dove si vuole qualsiasi tipo di immagine, link, video, o file. Attualmente le opzioni per il layout sono di due tipi: 1. Stream (come in un blog); 2. caricamento di uno sfondo personalizzato.

Il risultato finale può essere pubblicato come pagina pubblica, condiviso nei social media o incorporato in un sito web o blog o forum.

 

Posso aggiugnere che mi sembra un servizio che può essere facilmente utilizzato nella didattica in quanto offre la possibilità di creare spazi organizzati in cui presentare temi e problemi disciplinari o multidisciplinari e aggregare informazioni dal web su temi specifici. Un utile strumento per l'insegnamento e l'apprendimento.

 

Per utilizzarlo è sufficiente registrarsi, l'uso è libero e gratuito.

Robin Good: Tagxedo is a great, free web-based tool that allows you to create stunning covers, images for articles or posters, based exclusively on words.

Christin Lopez's curator insight, October 23, 2014 7:15 AM

This site provides a way to have an online textbook that you can share with students. Even in the free edition, there are upgrade charges for features and more storage, you can create and join classes. 

 

It looks like this has the potential to be a great resource, but I found trouble right away while searching for a couple topics that I currently teach. There are not textbooks that have tags that help me find what I was looking for. This made me question if the information is on the site and not tagged, or is it too new that others have not uploaded information. I thought that the software creators would have obtained copyright privileges for a number of topics to start the site out. They would have been seed ideas to get the ball rolling. For you to upload PDFs, you need to have the copyright permissions. So while the potential is there for individualizing, it is not a quick jump right into it.

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials | ed tech | Scoop.it

Here’s a common scenario. Someone emails and asks about an elearning tutorial I have on the blog. It’s not always easy to find the specific tutorial buried in a given post. In fact, there are many times I either forgot that I had created that tutorial or I can’t recall where it’s at either. I know. It’s part of getting older.

 

Today I am going to fix that. I have listed every blog post that has a video tutorial that shows how to create something related to online learning. So, if you’re just getting started with building online learning courses (or new to the blog), now you have a handy resource with links to all sorts of rapid elearning tutorials.
