Collaborative Writing: Edit, Comment, Compare and Revise with Editorially

Robin Good's curator insight, September 9, 2013 4:23 PM



Editorially is a collaborative free online editor which focuses on making it easy to revise, modify and comment on any text. With a minimal and inobtrusive UI, Editorially shines when it comes to see different contributors edits to the same text or to compare different versions of a story by different editors.


To format text the Markdown annotation approach is used, freeing the user from having to deal with menus and buttons.


Editorially automatically saves new versions of your text and it makes it easy to go back and see every single revision and edit made.


It is possible to import plain text files and to export both Markdown and HTML. All mobile devices and screens are supported.



My comment: Elegant, simple, easy to use. It offers powerful revision features making a very good alternative to other collaborative editors.



Free to use.

Free Technology for Teachers: On YouTube You Can Now Find Free Music to Legally Download and Re-use | Edtech for Schools | Scoop.it

For the last couple of years Vimeo has offered free music to download and re-use in your video projects. Now YouTube is offering the same thing through the YouTube Audio Library. This library is slightly different than the free music available when you use the YouTube slideshow creation tool. The music in the YouTube Audio Library is music that you can download to use in projects online and offline. You can search the library of music according to genre, mood, instrument, or duration. You can listen to the tracks before downloading them as MP3 files.

Diigo - Better reading and research with annotation, highlighter, sticky notes, archiving, bookmarking & more.

Diigo - Better reading and research with annotation, highlighter, sticky notes, archiving, bookmarking & more. | Edtech for Schools | Scoop.it
Diigo is a powerful research tool and a knowledge-sharing community
Christine Bushong's insight:
Read more effectively with annotation tools as you browse around the web. Add digital highlighters and sticky notes whether on PC, tablets, or mobile, and have them always be where you left them when you return! Print to mark-up? No longer necessary. Better recall? Proven! Create reports with your annotations? just a few clicks, and no more copy & paste into Word or email.Build your personal library in the cloud, with links, pages, notes, pictures etc, never to be lost, and ready to be accessed anywhere. Of course, those digital highlights, sticky notes and screenshots you added while going around the web automatically go into your library.Say goodbye to broken links and lost treasures The web is dynamic - valuable content you found earlier is often no longer there when needed. Diigo archives the webpages for the links you save. Better yet, the archived pages are fully searchable. So do not just bookmark, save to Diigo!Provide feedback and catch attention with annotation or screenshots Want to draw attention to a particular paragraph to your Twitter followers? Highlight it and tweet. Want to comment on a student’s writing? Use sticky notes for inline commenting. Want to provide feedback on a web design? Capture the page and mark it up.Organize your information as little or as much as you want. Since Diigo provides powerful search capabilities, the simple act of saving or annotating something, often with just one-click, will enable you to find it easily later. But of course, when you do want better organization, for easier review, for connecting the dots, for better sharing, for presentation, or whatever, Diigo provides unsurpassed organization capabilities, with both tagging and lists, to suit different needs.Share information as much or as little as you want One advantage of storing information in the cloud is that you can share them easily when you want to. Each piece of information can be set as private or public on Diigo. If you are an extrovert and like to share your passion and showcase who you are, make public as the default! If you are introvert, keep them all private! Want to send a whole collection to someone? just a few clicks away.Enable better collaboration on information for any group, large or small. Too little or too much sharing with email? Build a group knowledge repository for your family, your class, your team, or your entire company; each group member can add and subscribe to it, and browse and search it. Better yet, group members can interact with on-the-page annotations. So imagine your class are all reading the same Wikipedia article, and commenting and discussing right on the page!

Make All of Your Website Content Editable In-line with Snaplive


Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, September 8, 2013 12:02 PM


Snaplive is an up and coming free, open-source CMS which allows any publisher to edit the contents of its web site directly on the page, without needing to log in to a backend system.


Snaplive works perfectly with WordPress and with the existing theme you are using and not only provides editing functions but it also allows you to add / create new content sections very easily.


"Virtually ANY existing website or theme can become a Snaplive-powered editable website in a matter of minutes.


All you need to do is add an HTML5 attribute to the div that will contain editable content."


My comment: I haven't tried Snaplive but the video is quite self-explanatory. While not the first system that attempts to provide in-line, on-the-page content editing and creation, the fact that that is free and open-source, that it can work with most any existing web sites and with any WordPress theme makes it very interesting for many a web publisher. If installing and configuring is as easy as it is promised, then this could be a godsend both for many website designers as well as for their clients. 



My compliments to Niccolò Broggi for designing such a cool, elegant and useful tool. 


Currently in private alpha.

  Recently at Optimus we have decided to relook at how we conduct presentations. For years it was always the case that if you wanted to create a presentation – PowerPoint was always the answer. However like with everything else, technology has increased your choice of tools.
