Once installed it places a Dropbox icon at the bottom left of the Compose Mail box.
Just...

   - Sign into your Dropbox account,
   - click the file you want to attach and

Microsoft Office Online - Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on the web

Microsoft Office Online - Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on the web | technologies | Scoop.it
Collaborate for free with online versions of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote. Save documents, spreadsheets, and presentations online, in OneDrive. Share them with others and work together at the same time.
John Dalziel's insight:

Microsoft’s Office Online is a completely free, web-based version of Microsoft Office.

This online office suite is clearly competing with Google Drive, but it’s also a potential replacement for the desktop version of Office.
Unlike all of Microsoft’s other Office products, Office Online at office.com is completely free.
This is Office Online’s biggest advantage over desktop versions of Microsoft Office.

It  can be used on all the PCs you want without paying for additional boxed copies or subscribing to Office 365, Microsoft’s subscription service for Office.
Because it’s a web application that runs in your browser, Office Online will run on everything, from Linux PCs and Chromebooks to iPads and Android tablets.

It doesn't require any special plug-in and works in any popular browser, including Firefox, Chrome, and Safari — not just Internet Explorer.
Should you use Office Online?

Well, that’s up to you. If you’d like a completely free version of Office it’s a compelling option.

On the other hand, you may need the more advanced features in the desktop version of Office.
NOTE: it does provide access to learners who can't afford the desktop version of office.

This could be very handy for editing documents on the move when a desktop or laptop running the full suite isn't available and for collaborating with a team. I will be looking in to this further.

Privnote - Send notes that will self-destruct after being read

Share a confidential note via a web link that will self-destruct after it is read by your intended recipient.
John Dalziel's insight:

A really great feature is the ability to be notified when your note has been read. It’s basically a read receipt. Tick the box beside that option and you’ll need to enter your email address and a reference to this particular note.

Mail Markup: Inline annotations and markup in Gmail, Email markup, Email annotations

Mail Markup: Inline annotations and markup in Gmail, Email markup, Email annotations | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Mail Markup in Gmail is a Chrome extension which enables practitioners to preview an attachment from their learners without downloading it.
They can...
   - annotate the attachment,
   - add comments,
   - add those comments directly into the email, and
   - then send it back.
Potentially, a huge time saver.

Send to Dropbox | Email + Dropbox

Send to Dropbox | Email + Dropbox | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Many learning providers I support don't have a VLE but would like their learners to be able to upload their work and, very important for some, be ableto accessthe work where ever they are.
Ever thought about emailing files to your Dropbox? Well now you can! It's free, fast, secure and super simple too. All you have to do is connect with Dropbox, get your unique email address, and start sending files!

SpeakPipe installed on a learning provider's website, and/or other webpresences, could improve communication by providing an easy way for learners, prospects, employers,community members and others to leave messages.

 

SpeakPipe's messaging service could also be a good way for learning providers to reach stakeholders etc., who would rather hear a message from you than read a message.
