New: Best Online Collaboration Tools - 370+ Tools Organized and Ranked By Category | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it

Software tools, web apps and services for online collaboration

Robin Good's insight:



If you are looking for a bird's eye view on what alternative collaboration tools are now available for different kind of projects and purposes, I do have what you are looking for.


The new Best Online Collaboration Tools 2014 directory is now public. It contains over 370 collaboration tools organized in over 25 different categories ranging from video-conferencing to screen-sharing, collaborative reviewing and many more.


The tools listed have all been checked and verified and represent my own personal census on what is available today for each one of the categories listed. There is no attempt (yet) to provide individual evaluations or recommendations, though I have tried to subjectively rank tools in each category according to their value and importance.



The directory is updated weekly.

New suggestions, comments and request for revisions and changes are highly welcome.


Free to use.

Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, February 26, 2014 10:42 PM

A really quick tool for the Mac, but can do the same with Quicktime. Not sure if my firewall is preventing this from running. Recorded 5 seconds of footage from 1/4 of my screen on my MacBook Pro and has been cycling for about 5 minutes. Personally I pay the money and use ScreenFlow, which also allows webcam and microphone input together with screen casting and computer sound. Once finished recording the Screenflow editor pops up to allow you to adjust any of the shot.

A Curated Collection of All the DataViz Methods: The Data Visualization Catalogue

A Curated Collection of All the DataViz Methods: The Data Visualization Catalogue | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
If you've ever struggled with what visualization to create to best show the data you have, The Data Visualization Catalogue might provide just the help you
Robin Good's insight:



The Data Visualisation Catalogue is an on-going project developed by Severino Ribecca which attempts to index and catalogue all of the data visualization approaches available, in order to help journalists, designers and professional communicators identify more easily the type of data visualization most appropriate for their needs.

.

In the Catalogue there are now over 50 different data visualization approaches that have been identified, and about a third of them have also been documented with a basic description, visual examples, relevant tags to associate it with their possibe best uses, variations, and with a list of alternative tools available to create that type of data chart.

.

You can browse the catalogue also by using the "Search by Function" which is designed to aid in choosing the appropiate data visualization approach based on the specific communication need at hand, or with the "View by List" approach, which organizes dataviz methods by types. 

.

My comment: Excellent resource for visual communicators of all kinds as it helps you see the great variety of dataviz approaches available. It makes it easier to identify and select relevant solutions according to needs and use.

Create Image Slideshows with Cool Music Tracks Automatically with Evver

Create Image Slideshows with Cool Music Tracks Automatically with Evver | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Evver is a free web app which allows you to create music slideshows with extreme ease. You simply select your favorite pictures (from 10 to 100), you pick up a song, among the available soundtracks, and the rest is automatically done for you.


You can re-arrange the order in which the photos will be shown in the final video and delete the ones that you don't want to use and you are set to go.


Evver edits your pics in sync with the music and creates a music video that can be easily shared on any social media or embedded to your site or blog.


My comment: Very, very easy to use. The selection of music tracks that you can use is presently very limited. The final result is good, but - as you can see from my sample - not as good as it could be.

The Free Online Image Editor for All Levels: Open Pixlr

The Free Online Image Editor for All Levels: Open Pixlr | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it



Robin Good's insight:



If I were to recommend an online image/photo editor, that is fast, flexible and that provides all of the tools and features I generally need, I wouldn't hesitate a second in recommending Pixlr.


Not only this free web-based image editor is zippy and responsive as it can get, but it offers three alternative "versions" depending on your needs and skill level.


1) The Open Pixlr Express is the one I use the most, as it offers all of the basic functionalities I generally need, such as cropping, resizing, converting and basic retouching.


2) The Open Pixlr Editor is the advanced version which integrates all of the photo retouching tools you may need, as well as image layers, filters and more.


3) For non-technical people, kids and novices the Open Pixlr-o-Matic offers a perfect solution by integrating all of the key basic functions in an attractive and much simplified interface.


There is also a free mobile version both for Android and one for iPhone/iPad.


Free to use. No regsitration required.
