If you’re a techie or like to be creative in your use of technology, there are a lot of neat things in this presentation:
Most of the tools are web-based, free, easy to use and no need for software to be installed. Many of them I have heard of or used, but I learned about new ones as well.
The tools are categorized as follows. I have highlighted several that would be useful to law students and faculty. These tools enable digital content to be shared through email, uploading to TWEN, posting on a Blog, etc.
- Digital images, editors & generators
- resizeyourimage.com for decreasing the size of an image
- Zamzar.com for converting youtube videos to .wmv format
- Myna (aviary.com) for editing a class recording
- Screen Capture

- Slideshare.net to posting/sharing PowerPoint presentations
