Educational technology can be difficult to keep up with, especially for full-time faculty members. This guide contains some of the best examples of online and web-based software that can be utilized in the classroom (as well as a few education-related tools that are useful outside of the classroom). Emphasis was placed on software that is free, although there are a few items included that are for-purchase.
While there is a great deal of overlap between these tools, they are roughly organized into the following categories: presentations, mapping, collaboration, polling, and video. Apps for Apple and Android devices can be found in the 'A Few More' section. If you'd like to keep up with educational technology news, be sure to check out the 'Ed Tech Websites & Blogs' section.
