Oct 6, 2009 by

For anyone who has ever had trouble convincing your administration to give you the proper tools to teach online, I give you this little gift: eLearning Tools for STEM, published today in eLearning Magazine.


The tools for STEM eLearning

  1. Tablets
  2. Recording & editing software
  3. Jing
  4. Equation software and training
  5. Synchronous communication system
  6. Online homework system

Other head-turning resources for STEM

  • Wolfram Demonstrations
  • Digital libraries (a lengthy list)
  • Video collections (another list)
  • TI-SmartView

Other tips (about accessibility, computer labs, etc) can be found at the end of the article.

You can read about all the tools, and why I recommend them, by going to the article, eLearning Tools for STEM.
