Is Posterous really easy to use?

Brightlight

This is just to show how easy it is.

The above posting was used to show a colleague just how simple Posterous is to use. It constantly surprises me that it works so well! We’d been to a Training Session on blogging a couple of days before and were introduced to Blogger. It has a nice look and some interesting functions – in fact, I’m trying it out at the moment just to get a feel of it, but it will take quite a lot for me to abandon this. I find it just so convenient as a place to drop interesting bits and peices so I don’t forget about them!

Share and mark up documents online with crocodoc

 

Does as it says in the title, and assigns a random-looking URL you can share with other collaborators. No need to register for the basic and free version.

Dougbelshaw (who else) linked to this and it looks interesting. Still looking to replace what I was doing with etherpad, this at least allows online collaboration and mark up using highlighting, scorethrough, add text and post-it notes. I don’t  know what happens if several try to edit simultaneously so will have to try that out.Certainly in the version I have seen so far there is no sign of a timeline function to track back, but nevertheless it is a neat little package.  I wondered if it might be useful for my Year 11 to collaborate when annotating poems from the Anthology and so on? It seems to work with Word, Powerpoint and PDFs.
