Innovative Tools For Collaboration and Communication

  • Poll Everywhere   

http://www.polleverywhere.com/   

By relying on text messaging (SMS) and the web, audiences respond with their cell phones, BlackBerrys, iPhones, laptops, desktops, or any other web-enabled device. The audience's feedback is then shown in real-time in the presenter's PowerPoint slides or web browser.

  • Doodle

http://www.doodle.com/

The world’s leading online scheduling service, Doodle takes the pain out of finding the right date and time for a group of people to meet and makes scheduling virtually effortless.

  • Word Reference   

http://www.wordreference.com/   

Free, online multilingual dictionaries supported by language forums. Have a question about usage? Search the hundreds of thousands of previous questions! Still not sure? Post a query and native speakers will assist you.

  • NoodleTools

http://www.noodletools.com/index.php

Innovative software that teaches students and supports teachers throughout the research and composition process. Guides students in their efforts to search for and assess information sources. Helps with recording, organizing and synthesizing information using online note cards. Formats bibliographies according to MLA, APA or Chicago style.

  • Critique It

http://edu.critiqueit.com/

Feedback has never been so easy. You post a document and invite people. They give you feedback using text, audio or video. Whatever the file (doc, pdf, rft, txt), you can upload, share, and critique faster and more efficiently than ever before. Includes customizable tools to annotate texts.

  • eComma

http://ecomma.cwrl.utexas.edu/blog/   

Developed by faculty and graduate students from the Department of English at the University of Texas at Austin, eComma allows you to experience a text as fully as possible as you share your observations and interpretations with other readers. Collaborative online annotation offers a new kind of reading experience: instead of making notes in the margin of a book, readers can now share their reactions instantaneously and build a body of commentary about a text together.
