Quick thoughts on some sites I’ve found this week and at the very least have interested me….
Phonevite is looking great to me. I first thought you may only get 25 calls total for free. However, after two e-mails to Phonevite I found out that you can send up to 25 people at a time a phone message for free! You can store as many numbers & groups as you want, so then you can turn around and do it again to a new group. For instance, an Algebra group about their assignments due, then a Pre-Algebra group…..do you see where I’m going here? I’m really liking this for teachers to get information out to parents. I will have to continue to check into it. Oh yeah, they have been very good getting back to me by e-mail.
A fellow colleague, Cindy Crandall, showed me Wikipedia Commons which seems to be like Creative Commons, a place to find free and usuable pictures, and some music on the web. I have only played around with it to find pictures right now, but never new that Wikipedia was branching out. I also heard from Tim Clarke about Wikipedia Books….are they trying to become the next Google? I definately need to see what is going on with Wikipedia.
How about Anywhere.fm ? Not sure if this would mean much to me. I don’t tend to even keep my iTunes updated, however, it might be nice for others to check out. You can upload your music and listen to it anywhere!
