eduClipper - 0 views

    EduClipper is an educational platform for students and teachers to explore, share and contribute resources. A difference between eduClipper and other curation sites for educational materials is that this site allows for the user to choose a privacy level. A user can decide to create an eduClipboard and keep it private or make it public and share it via Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, Evernote, Edmodo or email. Since eduClipper's goal is for users to explore, share and contribute to the library of educational content, the site isn't as likely as some sites to be blocked by school firewalls.
