Here are a few of the tools we use on the Blog:
Animoto – a great way of showing off photographs. Animoto will put them together for you into a short video and you can choose styles and music. It’s free to make 30 second videos and you can pay to make longer ones.
Voicethread – a collaborative way of adding comments to a picture. You can upload a picture then assign pictures to different voices. Each person can then leave their comments.
Photopeach – another great way of showing off photo’s – make slideshows or spirals.
Fotobabble – take a picture then comment on it. Really simple but very useful, especially as it has it’s own iphone app so you can comment on things you see outside.
Wordle – type in or paste text into a box and it will pick out the most frequently used words and make them into a word cloud.
Wallwisher – create a wall about a specific subject and people can double-click on the wall and write/post a picture.
AudioBoo – record a mini podcast straight into the computer or upload from a file – then publish!
