ClassroomScreen

Principal function(s): Course managementDigital whiteboards

ClasroomScreen is a tool for customizing a digital screen used for teaching. Many useful widgets can be integrated, such as an instruction box, stopwatch, timer, random name selector, and a noise level controller, for example. All of these can then appear simultaneously on the same screen. Evaluation: ClassroomScreen is a straightforward, practical tool which helps teachers to manage their classes more efficiently, while also making learning more interesting, enjoyable and interactive for students. A negative point is that it is not possible for the screen to be saved once it has been set up. A new screen has to be constructed each time, although this can be done quickly and easily.

Cost: Free with registration + premiums plans available
