AnswerGarden

Principal function(s): Word cloud creators

Simple, user-friendly tool to use for brainstorming or collecting feedback in a classroom. Submit a question into the answer garden, provide your students with the link to access it and wait for them to enter their responses, which will then form the shape of a word cloud. Evaluation: Easy-to-use tool. Good 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.

Cost: Free, does not require registration
