Google Drive - Get Started

Google Drive - Get Started | Social Curator | Scoop.it
John Thomas's insight:

Google Research is a little-known sidebar available inside Google Drive documents and presentations which allows you to do just-in-time Google searches and to easily curate relevant results, including images, videos, text excerpts, links with full automatic attribution references, into the document or presentation you are preparing.

 

The Google Research sidebar facility can be called at anytime up by simply going to the Tools menu and selecting "Research" or by selecting any word in your text and then typing Ctrl+Alt+Shft+I.

 

Once in view, the mini Google Research sidebar, is ready to search across not just the Google standard web results, including news, images, videos and Google Scholar databases, but is also able to instantly filter and sort for you relevant Quotes, Dictionary items, as well as stuff from your own Google Drive documents and tables.

 

To identify more rapidly relevant resources inside this search sidebar, Google offers the option to "preview" any result, by opening an additional sidebar showcasing a resized view of the web page in question).

 

Once identified a relevant resource you can either drag and drop it right into your open Google document / presentation (great for images which will also automatically credit)*, or "insert the resource as a link", or "cite" it (by being able to select between MLA; APA and Chicago citation formats).

I have found the Google Research Tool extremely useful, handy and simple to use. If you are researching, writing or curating any kind of article, presentation or report in Google Drive, I highly recommend you try it yourself and let me know what you think of it.

 

Free to use.

Awesometalk

Awesometalk | Social Curator | Scoop.it
Free video calling without the hassle.
John Thomas's insight:

Awesometalk is a new free web service which makes it extremely easy to have a one-to-one or multi-party video-conference without the need to install, setup, register or login anything. 

You simply head-on to Awesometalk.com and without needing to click anything you are instantly provided with a link that you can share with anyone to meet and videoconference with you.

 

You share the link and as soon as someone else joins the specified link the videoconference starts automatically. The UI is basically non-existent with the only two things in view being, the video feed of other callers and a button that appears just in-time to end the call.

 

Supereasy.

 

Free to use.

GoToMeeting Free

GoToMeeting Free | Social Curator | Scoop.it
Your new place to meet, team up, connect, collaborate, talk
John Thomas's insight:


GoToMeeting Free is a new free web-based app (in the form of a Chrome extension for now) which allows you to run video-conferencing meetings for up to three people, without needing to download, install or register anything. GoToMeeting Free takes advantage of the new WebRTC protocol which allows new browsers to connect directly to each other in a P2P fashion and to be able to carry out audio-video communications without the need for additional software or plugins. The interface is minimal, offering only a few buttons to mute video or audio and to invite other persons in your video chat. My comment: Straightforward, easy-to-use, free video-conferencing tool makes it very easy to video chat in small groups without problems. Free to use.

WordPress Popup and Lead Capturing Plugin | Pippity Popups | Social Curator | Scoop.it
Capture leads and maximize your lists with Pippity for WordPress. Pippity Popups are meant to please—not be blocked.
John Thomas's insight:

Popups usually appear before a reader has experienced your site's content or when they're actively reading it. These are the worst times to interrupt a visitor to your site and rarely lead to conversions. Pippity gives you the control to make sure that never happens.  Pippity comes with a whopping 18 stunning themes!

Use predefined quick-styles to get going fast or take the reigns, easily customizing every aspect all the way down to the font, text color and overlay settings.  It doesn’t matter if you want to create a popup box or opt-in bar, Pippity can do it all!
