TES teach

This tool allows teachers to create digital lessons by putting together different resources such as texts, videos, images, presentations. Teachers can make use of their own documents, browse in YouTube, Google or other platforms and websites for suitable resources and incorporate them in their 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 they preferences with a ‘like’ button.

Evaluation: TES teach has an intuitive interface, it is user-friendly and it is easier to create interesting and appealing lessons with it than with other more complete course management platforms, like for example Moodle.

Cost: Free with registration + some paid contents
