Some more updates for you.

Jing Added to the "Essentials" list

After using Jing almost everyday for over a year I've decided to move it onto the "Essentials" list on the site. for those of you who don't know, the essentials list contains the websites & software that I believe every teacher should be aware of.

Dropbox added to the "Online File Storage" page

I must thank both @Pixelcult and @evanrichards for letting me know just how useful Dropbox is - thanks guys!

Dropbox gives you 2 gigs worth of free online storage which should be more than enough for most people (although you can purchase more via one of their paid plans).

The nice thing about Dropbox is that it works on Windows, Linux & Mac systems and integrates itself seamlessly into your desktop - making it really easy and intuitive to use.

My thanks go to Helen Hodges at RSC Wales for letting me know about this guide via the RSC Wales Teaching & Learning blog - Thanks Helen!

That's all for today.

Thanks for reading!
