    Knowledge is power - but how do you plug into new ideas when organisational budgets are flipping the switch on PD?  There is a wealth of opportunities that won't cost the earth or force you to travel it to be found online - and there's more to explore than MOOCs and webinars.

ImageQuiz - 0 views

  •  
    A website that lets users create image-based quizzes with ease. Upload your image, choose a title, and begin tagging the locations of the labels. Tagging works by drawing on the image to define what the quiz should test people on, and then labeling each of those tags. It is very easy to use and has a basic, simple interface and best of all - no signup required! This means you can get students to create their own quizzes without worrying about them having to create accounts and then forgetting the passwords

5 Easy Ways To Download & Convert Online Videos - 11 views

  •  
    "Streaming video websites are such a big part of our lives, it's hard to remember a time when they didn't exist. These websites revolutionized our computer video experience - no longer do we have to download every single video we want to watch - it's all right there! But the opposite is also true. Sometimes sending a link or embedding a video is not enough, and we need the actual file, or only its soundtrack. And when that happens, the default FLV file format rarely cuts it. Luckily, there are several downloaders-converters out there that make it easy as pie to download videos and convert them into almost every possible format."
