TES teach

Principal function(s): Virtual Exchange

This tool allows teachers to create digital lessons by putting together different resources such as texts, videos, images, and presentations. Teachers can make use of their own documents, browse YouTube, Google, or other platforms and websites for suitable resources and incorporate them into the lesson. They can also search for suitable free and paid-for materials within Tes Teach Blendspace. Teachers can assess students' participation using quizzes and online discussions and students can state their preferences with a ‘like’ button. Evaluation: TES teach has an intuitive interface, which is user-friendly and makes it easier to create interesting and appealing lessons than with other more complete course management platforms, like for example Moodle.

Cost: Free with registration + paid features
