Airtable

John Dalziel's insight:

Managers, practitioners, learners, and others, STOP using spreadsheets as a database.
Airtable provides an alternative that is as fast and easy as editing a spreadsheet.
But only Airtable is backed by the power of a full database, giving users rich features far beyond what any spreadsheet can offer.
Plus with Airtable, users get seamless access from anywhere.

QwikSlides allows users to quickly create slideshows that live on the web and can be viewed on any device that has an up-to-date web browser.

   - click the edit icon (it's a pencil), then on the next screen

   - write what you want to appear on each slide.
NOTE:
   - A separate slide will be created for each line written. The more users write on a line, the smaller the resulting text will be.
   - To include a picture or a video in a slide it has to be hosted on-line somewhere. Put the link to your picture or video on a line in the slide editor and a slide will be created containing that media.
   - To save your slides just...

Create free websites - SnackWebsites

Create free websites - SnackWebsites | technologies | Scoop.it
Create free websites, really easy! Free & easy to set up. Especially developed to work on all mobile devices. No ads.
John Dalziel's insight:

SnackWebsites Mobile Website Builder is a free to use online web service that lets users create mobile websites.
Today nearly every learner has a smartphone. And learners make full use of their smartphones by using the Internet on them.

This makes it very easy for learning providers, or individual practitioners, to quickly show their learners, their online files that are mobile-compatible.
This can be a great advantage for tutorials, distance learning etc.

Mobile sharing is also beneficial for learners that have portfolios online.
Creating online portfolios of work will not do them any good if the web service they use is not mobile-friendly.
When users start creating a website, they can select which category it falls in; covered categories include...
- personal,
- portfolio,
- community,
- blog,
- product,
- band,
- event,
...and lots more.
Users can also select a template from the various visually appealing options.
The site even gives users numerous extension options to customize the overall URL of the resulting website.
A possible addition to employability courses and/or for community courses e.g. websites for self-employed, community groups, sports clubs, the list goes on.
