Storify

Storify allows teachers to let their students create their own online stories by putting together text and content brought from different social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr. The results will be stored in their account and can be embedded in different platforms or websites.

Evaluation: Storify is easy to use and the results can be shared on different platforms. It also facilitates giving feedback, as it is possible to write comments inside the different elements of the story. Nevertheless, it is not possible to create complex materials.

Cost: Free with registration
