There are many technology tools available online that can enhance content delivery. The tools below facilitate content delivery during face-to-face class sessions or by embedding in Canvas for hybrid or online courses.
|3D Chem||3D Chem is a website featuring interactive 3D molecules. The 3D structures can be manipulated by rotating, zooming, and changing the display options (wire, ball & stick, space fill, etc.). On this website, you can find an alphabetical list of molecules, a molecule of the month, and the molecular structure of drugs and biological structures such as enzymes, DNA, and viruses. An interactive Periodic Table is available with links to 3D images of structures containing the elements.|
|Adobe Spark Page||Create high-quality “Web Stories” and content presentations using your own images, text, and videos.|
|Adobe Spark Video||Create high-quality videos using your own images or a variety of free images, icons, and text.|
|Animoto||Create web-based video slideshow.|
|BioDigital 3D Human||BioDigital Human is an interactive website with a 3-D anatomical model of the human body. The website allows users to explore the entire body, body systems, and medical conditions. The body can be manipulated by rotating, zooming, removing layers, and dissecting organs, systems, and bones. The simulations can be used during lectures to demonstrate a concept or used by students on their own devices or in a computer lab.|
|ChemTube 3D||ChemTube3D contains interactive 3D animations and structures, with supporting information for some of the most important topics covered during an undergraduate chemistry degree. (website) Content is divided into five topics: A Level (topics covered in introductory chemistry classes), Organic Reactions, Structure and Bonding, Polymers, and Inorganic Chemistry. These research-based interactive simulations are free for faculty and students and can be used during lectures to demonstrate a concept or used by students on their own devices or in a computer lab|
|Educreations||Online recordable whiteboard used to create videos with inserted images, audio, and annotations.|
|Emaze||Create online presentations as an alternative to PowerPoint.|
|Flipgrid||Create video-based discussion boards.|
|The process of standardizing classroom technologies began in 2016. Each standardized classroom has a HoverCam Ultra 8 Document Camera. The document camera can be used to display two- and three-dimensional objects, capture images of documents/objects, and record video.|
|Interactive Projector & Whiteboard||
The process of standardizing classroom technologies began in 2016. Each standardized classroom has an Epson Interactive Projector. The interactive projector and whiteboard functions as a “SMART” board where you can electronically save your notes for later reference and allows you to control the computer and programs from the board, draw over images, and annotate over web pages and computer programs such as PowerPoint.
For more information on the Epson Interactive Projector and ideas for integrating it into your class, please contact Mrs. Lisa Brown at (205)665-6370.
|Mysimpleshow||Create web-based videos that contain animated graphics and narration.|
|PhET Interactive Simulations||PhET Interactive Simulations is a website developed by the University of Colorado Boulder that contains interactive chemistry, physics, math, and science simulations. These research-based interactive simulations are free for faculty and students and can be downloaded to a computer, used online, or embedded in Canvas. In most of the simulations, the user can control the experiment variables to see how the results change|
|Piktochart||Create infographics that visually represent data or information.|
|Popplet||Create mind maps, diagrams, concept maps and presentations that contain text, images, drawings, and videos.|
|Quizlet||Create interactive study tools and vocabulary information.|
|Teaching Station Control Panel||The teaching station control panel in standardized classrooms allows you to power on/off the projector, control volume, and switch between multiple inputs without using remotes.|
|Tiki-Toki||Create interactive 3D visual timelines.|
|URL Shorteners||Shorten long URL addresses|
