7 brides for 7 brothers. Or 7 low/no-cost web apps to use in medical education.
Teresa Heithaus of North Shore-Long Island Jewish health system’s Staten Island University Hospital, NY gave a talk on web applications that can be used for low or no cost.
Some of the tools she adapted from applications designed for K-12 education.
Here are 8 of the promised 7:
- <Quia.com> for making quizzes and surveys. It also provides an online grade book.
- <Socrative.com> an audience response system that allows students to use their own smart phone, tablet or laptop. Very cool.
- <BigMarker.com> offers free video conferencing. The free conferences have to be public. If you want to make the conferences private it costs $9-99/month
- <Livebinders.com> is a website that allows the teacher to collect web resources for distribution as teaching resources. Pretty cool idea.
- Google Apps <http://www.google.com/enterprise/apps/business/index2.html> For Sites, YouTube, Blogger, docs, Google Drive)
- <http://www.mendeley.com> is a free PDF manager and reference manager.
- <http://animoto.com> for making videos
- <http://prezi.com> for making fresh pan and zoom presentations
