The online eReader for learners. Import other websites or novel length texts and read them in a distraction free environment with one-click translation. After reading, review the new vocabularly with spaced repetition flashcards.
Silvia Gallardo-Martin's insight:
This tool should be useful to encourage students to read any sort of text that they come across during their surfing time.

It has also a few handy features such as the possibility of making flashcards to help memorise vocabulary plus quick & easy access to wordreference.

Plotagon is a tool that lets anyone create an animated movie directly from a written screenplay. Write your story, choose actors, environments and music. Press play and your movie is done. It's that simple.
This tool is great for task-based tasks as it lets studens work on their writing and speaking skills at the same time. They can see a polished result and do not have to act their script themselves. This is a grown-up version of dom.goanimate.
