I like animoto, since it is fairly easy to use, but prezi has a learning curve. Kizoa sounds very interesting, a combo of slides and video.

Using the webcam to engage with online students

Using the webcam to engage with online students | Learning tools | Scoop.it

Studying online can be a very solitary process and it’s this feeling of isolation that is most often attributed to the high rate of student drop-outs in online courses. As an online teacher, this makes quickly building a good relationship with your students all the more vital.

The researchers found that the initial duplication process mattered a great deal. When children had drawn a letter freehand, they exhibited increased activity in three areas of the brain that are activated in adults when they read and write: the left fusiform gyrus, the inferior frontal gyrus and the posterior parietal cortex.

This looks like a great tool for any freelance language teachers. There is a free account to set up a profile, but to get the best from it you would need a pro account, but the price for a year is very reasonable.

Warmers and fillers for the online classroom - EnglishUp | Learning tools | Scoop.it

The online classroom can at times seem like a very cold space and building a supportive and friendly environment for students while getting a clear idea of their capabilities can be quite challenging. Having some zero preparation activities up your sleeve to get students speaking can be a real benefit.

HelloTalk - A language learning community on your mobile

HelloTalk - A language learning community on your mobile | Learning tools | Scoop.it

I've always liked the idea of language exchanges and peer learning as the learning tends to be driven by and through an authentic desire to communicate. HelloTalk is a wonderful example of this, but with lots of nice features to make the process mobile and more efficient. Most of these features are accessed by pressing down on your partner's text to get the pop up tool bar.
