Live Binders - Online Binders of Webpages and Images

Live Binders is a neat service that allows you to create online binders of webpages, images, and documents. Live Binders displays your collected content in a tabbed, book-like format. You can create binders for as many topics as you like. Adding content to your Live Binder can be done by manually typing in the url of a webpage, upload files from your computer to your Live Binder, or add content through the Live Binders bookmarklet for Firefox and Internet Explorer. Live Binders has an excellent series of video tutorials to help you get started.

Thanks to Kelly at iLearn Technology for the tip about Live Binders.

Applications for Education
Live Binders could be an excellent tool for students to use to create online booklets of resources they find online combined with content that they've created. Or students could build Live Binders to showcase the work that they've done.

Free Technology For Teachers: Scrapblog - Another Good Tool for Online Presentations

Scrapblog takes the idea of scrap-booking or collage making and puts it online in an easy to use format. Scrapblog allows users to incorporate pictures and videos as a part of a scrapblog. Scrapblog works with Flickr, Picasa, Photobucket, and other image hosting services. Scrapblogs can be created without having to create an account to get started. With a lot of online applications the registration process can be time consuming with students. Eliminating that step allows students to start their creation quickly.


Applications for Education
Scrapblog is a nice alternative to standard slide shows or collages. The transitions and page turning features allow Scrapblog to be used like a slide show or be used as a stand alone project to include in a class blog or website.

Below is a short introduction to Scrapblog.
