Enhancing Your Course with Free Web Tools

Enhancing Your Course with Free Web Tools


A web application is a program that is accessed using a web browser. Examples include YouTube, Google Maps, FaceBook, and Blogger. A majority of the applications are free for basic use and many college courses take advantage of them. This workshop will familiarize participants with a selection of free web applications, ways they are used in teaching, and resources for learning more.

  • explain what a "web application" is.
  • name a number of web applications.
