The New Classtools Countdown Timer Offers Multiple Timers Set to Music

My friend Russel Tarr has developed a new classroom timer tool. The new Classtools Countdown Timer has two slick features. You can create and set multiple timers on the same page. This means that if you had students sharing in rapid succession you wouldn't have to reset the timer for each student, you simply move onto using the next timer on the page. The screenshot below explains that feature.

The second feature of note in the Classtools Countdown Timer is the option to add music to your timers. You can have your countdown timers set to music. Mission Impossible, The Apprentice, and Countdown are the standard music options. You can add other music by using the YouTube search tool built into the timer .

A Task Timer to Use Offline or Online

Task Timer is a free Chrome app that you can use to time multiple tasks or events at the same time. The app works online and or offline in the Chrome web browser. After installing the app you can create a set of tasks that you want to time. You can run multiple timers at once or run them individually. The timer functions on a countdown basis. A chime sounds when time has expired on each timer.

Applications for Education
Task Timer could be a handy tool to use when you have students working a variety of tasks and you want to track how much time is spent on each one.
