Quick Tool Post: 5 Tools for Higher Education Educators

Listed below are five powerful tools that Higher Education Educators can adapt to their courses.


Create a hashtag for your class and invite students to ask questions in the background, share information with other students. It also can be used to tag articles, people, blog, events, and other useful information.

Today’s Meet 

Today’s Meet is an interactive way to have a text chat discussion. It’s free and students do not have to sign in. Educators need to sign in (you can use a google account) in order to create the chatroom.


Can be used collaboratively to gather and share content in an organized way.

Facebook Live/Periscope 

Provide students with interactive feedback. Schedule a time to go over student works, mini-lecture, or thoughts and additional information.

Google Forms 

This is a great way for students to learn data collection and analysis.

I highly recommend it for those who need to create demonstrations on their mobile devices.


I have been using Snagit since the late 90s. The once small but powerful tool has finally grown up to become a must have tool. It’s not just an image capture software, but it really is a great tool to do a short how to video.

This is just a quick capture that I created with Snagit 13! As you can see you can now use webcam video in the capture.
