Content Sharing Tools

Content sharing tools do not have the robust feature of an LMS but provide an easy way to share content digitally with learners. They may allow you to share content through group texting, on social media or through a mobile app, or by quickly creating a website or online board for posting content or weblinks. Some tools incorporate ways of engaging learners with the content including games.

Considerations for Selecting Content Sharing Tools

Privacy

When using tools such as Facebook or WhatsApp for sharing content and information, be mindful of users’ privacy. Some tools, like Remind, allow for communication within groups without requiring users to share personal information.

Organization

Consider how you want to organize information and resources as you test different sharing tools. Tools such as Symbaloo, LiveBinders, Padlet, and Trello allow you to save and organize various weblinks to easily share with learners.

Flexibility & Maintenance

Simple website creation tools such as Weebly, Wix, WordPress, and Google Sites provide a flexible “home base” for everything you wish to share. Think about what you want to share and your capacity for keeping up.

Account Management

Be mindful of how many tools you utilize. Various tools offer a range of unique and exciting features, but the more tools that require logins, the more likely you’ll need to troubleshoot things such as forgotten passwords.
