Principal function(s): Word cloud creators

A straightforward, user-friendly tool for brainstorming or collecting feedback in a classroom. Educators can submit a question into AnswerGarden, provide learners with access it via URL or as a link embedded in a website, blog, or social media post, and wait for them to enter their responses. Finally, the answers will be displayed in the form of a word cloud. Evaluation: An easy-to-use, valuable tool for collecting feedback and assessing knowledge of a certain topic. Works best with simple questions with one-word answers as there is a character limit. AnswerGarden is particularly useful for brainstorming.

Cost: Free, does not require registration
