Listhings - Your Sticky Notes on the Web

Listhings is a fairly new web-based sticky note service. Like other services in its market, Listhings provides user with an online space to write notes, store notes, and sort notes. Listhings also gives users the option to share their sticky noteboards with others via email invitation. The one thing that makes Listhings different from some of its competitors is that users can create more than one page of notes in the same account. Listhings users can choose to share one sticky noteboard while keeping another sticky noteboard private.

As you might expect from a service like this, Listhings allows users to edit the colors of their notes. Users can also arrange notes on their noteboards using the simple drag and drop functionality.

Organize and Collaborate with Stixy

Stixy.com is a organization and collaboration web tool. Stixy, as the name implies, allows you to write notes and stick them to a clipboard. This sounds no different than the built in Sticky application on your Mac. Stixy takes it a step further by allowing you to share you notes with others and have them respond to your notes. The Stixy clipboard has three other great features, the ability to stick and share documents, stick and share photographs, and create and share a "to do" list on the clipboard and on a calendar. Stixy does not require any downloads and operates on any operating system. Below you will see a screen shot of the clipboard I'm using right now.










Applications for Education

Stixy is useful for creating a calendar of events or units of study to share with students and parents. Stixy shared "to do" list function could be useful to helping students stay organized while working on long projects. Finally, the ability to customize and personalize the look of the Stixy clipboard may encourage students to use their Stixy clipboard regularly.
