from iLearn Technology: What it is: Inklewriter is a great digital tool that lets students (and teachers if you are so inclined) write and publish interactive stories. Inklewriter lets students create choose-your-own-adventure type stories, story lines can come with choices and then be linked back together. Inklewriter makes this process easier by keeping track of which story paths have been finished and which still need work. There is no set-up required, no programming language to learn and no diagrams. Inklewriter is free to use and easy to share with the world when it is published. When a story is finished, it can even be converted to Kindle format!

For years now I have been happily using EtherPad based services like http://primarypad.com/ and http://sync.in/ to get participants on the training courses I deliver to work collaboratively to create and peer edit texts. Increasingly though I've been having problems with the reliability of the free services these companies provide and the lack of reliable compatibility with mobile devices.
At last it seems that now I have a very elegant solution in the form of https://quip.com/. Quip looks a lot like Evernote and has a similar interface with documents contained in notebooks, but one of the big differences is that Quip was designed specifically to enable peer editing and collaboration on documents and has a very clear way of showing and tracking the changes.
Gingko is an online word processor, that lets you work on structure & content at the same time.
Whether you’re an artist, scholar, or entrepreneur, this new medium lets you write better, faster.
Write better, by default
Writing well requires you to focus on the details of your work. You need to pick the right words, the right argument, the right line of dialogue.
But that’s only half of the picture. To write well, the overall plot, structure, and flow is just as important.
Writing is hard because we have no tools to easily focus on the content and the structure at the same time. Until now. Gingko is the only word processor where you can work on both structure and content at the same time.
Which means that whether you’re writing that report your boss keeps bugging you about, or that novel you’ve been yearning to get out, you’ll be able to write better, faster.
