Tech-o Tuesday #6: Collaboration WebApps

More and more of my work is done online – not via email or phone, but through the intartubes themselves. This week’s episode of Tech-o Tuesday focuses on some on the collaboration webapps that help me get my work done, no matter where I am, and no matter with whom I need to connect. Check below the audio file for links to all programs I mentioned.


  • iChat AV: Apple’s standard IM client, with A/V capabilities.
  • TokBox: online video messaging; easy embedding into blogs / websites / social profiles
  • Scriblink: online whiteboarding
  • Vyew: synchronous or asynchronous whiteboarding, built-in a/v chat and desktop sharing, and easy saving of vyewbooks
  • Stixy: like Google Apps, but sexier. Drag-and-drop bulletin boards for sharing documents, photos, tasks, appointments, etc.

Ryan has been proudly maintaining and contributing to Language Lab Unleashed since 2005, and is the current President of SWALLT. Since the summer of 2013 he's been causing trouble with his all-star colleagues in the UMW DTLT; when not wrangling websites Ryan can be found doing strange things with heavy objects.

    Hey Ryan,

    I just thought I would suggest another app. It’s called and it allows users to collaboratively create photobooks with pictures and text. They can be viewed online, embedded into a blog, or professionally printed. Teachers have been using this in their classroom. Hope you like it!
