Splashup, formerly Fauxto, is a powerful editing tool and photo manager. With the features professionals use and novices want, it's easy to use, works in real-time and allows you to edit many images at once. Splashup runs in all browsers, integrates seamlessly with top photo-sharing sites, and even has its own file format so you can save your work in progress. If you don't have Photoshop then Splshup is a great starting point for layered based graphic editing in the browser.
Splashup is a great little photo / image editor that works straight from the browser. It is really user friendly and will easily be handled by students and novices alike but it also has some depth to it. For example photoshop users will be impressed to see that you can use layers which puts it above many basic / free image editors that are available out there.
It links into all the major web based photo sharing services such as Picasa, Flickr Etc and has a range of dynamic brushes and filters.
All in all this is definitely one of the best free Photoshop alternatives for beginners I have seen and would definitely solve most beginners problems easily right from the browser. This program would be great for students earning their graphic design degree online too. Check it out here.
Make no mistake Myna is Garageband in the Browser for mine and is a far superior product to Soundation but Soundation is another great tool for those want to get creative on the web and make some music with minimal fuss. Students and teachers can use this tools as a powerful online sequencer with 11 real time effects, 3 synthesizers, a drum machine and a fully integrated Sound Shop. It has both a free and paid version and is definitely worth a look if music is your thing. Get it here.
I'll start straight off by saying that Zoodles is aimed at parents more so than schools however I will definitely be installing this on all of our school computers due to it's depth of features and content: Essentially Zoodles is an Age appropriate web browser that is linked to a massive database of educational games and web sites. You can either let children surf Zoodles in the freedom of knowledge that they are both safe and gaining a learning experience or you can tailor zoodles as a parent or teacher to have a specific focus on say mathematics or reading.
Kids will find this pretty one cool as they now have their own browser, which they also have an element of control over and parents will love it will keep all the nasty content on the web out of site and feel confident that their kids are not aimlessly wasting their time on the web.
Zoodles offers both a free and subscription based package. But definitely take 2 minutes to check out the video below of what Zoodles could offer you in the classroom. Check it out here.
