Corkboard Me - Another Nice Sticky Note Service

Last week I published a short post with ideas for using seven sticky note services in schools. This week I found another good sticky note service to add to the list. Corkboard Me is a simple service for creating and sharing a wall of sticky notes.

Registration is not required in order to use Corkboard Me. To use Corkboard Me just visit the site then click anywhere on the virtual corkboard to start typing your notes. A URL will be assigned to your corkboard. Share that URL with anyone that you want to add notes your wall. Corkboard Me is a freemium service. The free version of the product does not allow for private sharing of corkboards.

Applications for Education
If you're okay with creating public corkboards, Corkboard Me could be a good tool for students to use to post short "exit ticket" notes about things that they learned in your classroom that day. Just post the url and tell students to write a short note. Since registration isn't required in order to post a note, you won't lose classroom time to fussing about with log-ins. One thing to keep in mind if you use the public corkboards option is that you should have a conversation with your students about what is and is not appropriate to post online.
