CryptPad

Principal function(s): File sharing/syncing Slide presenting

CryptPad is a free open source collaborative document editor. It supports rich text, polls, whiteboards, and presentations, among others. One of the main advantages of this tool is that sharing a document is as simple as getting the shareable URL. Moreover, the built-in chat allows different editors to talk to each other in real time. It is therefore a great tool for teams to work together. It is not necessary to register in CryptPad to use it but doing it gives you access to more options.

Evaluation: Even though CryptPad is very similar to Microsoft tools such as Word or PowerPoint, this open source app allows for a more collaborative environment while keeping data private. All content is encrypted and decrypted by your browser, which means that no one outside your session has access to your information. The tool is available in many languages.

Cost: Free (more options if registered)

Write & Improve (Tool to improve your writing in English)

Write & Improve is a free online tool developed by the University of Cambridge to help English language learners improve their writing skills. Students choose their level and then receive a selection of writing tasks that match that level. Once the task has been submitted, the tool automatically assigns an appropriate grade and also gives feedback on the writing, which students can incorporate into the original text. Students can also create their own writing assignments.... View details
