Free Software for Teaching and Learning

Along with curating the best free software for creativity on the web I also like to play with design and code. As a former interactive media teacher, and teacher trainer in e-learning, it was a way of keeping myself active outside of the classroom. As a result here are a few tools I created in response to personal, student or teaching needs. If you find them useful please download, keep and share.
