WallWisher is a free tool that allows you to create a page of online sticky notes. In addition to text, the notes can include images, links and videos as long as that media is already stored somewhere else online. Create a themed wall, then invite others to add stickies. Just think of all the ways this Cool Tool can be used! [Contributed by Susan Oxnevad.]

Revisiting Hot Potatoes

In September of last year, the Hot Potatoes was put into the public domain, which means it is free for everyone to use. [See Sept 1 blog entry] It's a great educational tool for making quizzes and crosswords and matching.

The one thing that may be difficult is that it's not as intuitive to use as some of the more contemporary programs. So, here is a little help. All files are PDF format.
  1. Creating Quizzes
  2. Making a Crossword
  3. Creating a Matching Exercise (Including how to add images)
Students quickly learn how to create with the program also!
