The best things in life are free

Here are some free online tools that can be used to support teaching, presentations, collaborations, sharing and organisation of resources. When you using, creating and sharing free online resources you need to consider issues of copyright, so check what licence the resource has eg does the resource have an 'All rights reserved' licence or 'Creative Commons'.

what a great list of useful tools. I must ensure I have it to hand for some of our ongoing serach at CAPABLENZ for effective ways to link with our qualification candidates.
I did enjoy the two posts in the Facilitating online e-mail group,on making comments and encouraging comments. (Oh, does that sound like a press release????).gives me much food for thought, as is all this activity really.
Clearly your time in Pakistan has been enriching for you as well as you Pakistani colleagues.
