Blackboard could be a great tool to use with the new laptops. Many colleges use it, or similar platforms, to enhance face-to-face classes and to facilitate online classes. It allows you to upload materials and create online assignments/quizzes/tests. Students can submit assignments through Blackboard and the teacher can grade it online completely, giving students feedback and even reposting "marked up" assignments for the student to review. It also has a gradebook. I have examples I used with the my classes at UK, if anyone is interested in seeing it. ~Renae

TrackStar is a cool tool to use for webquests or if you have certain websites you want students to visit. You can put instructions on each site.

Slide Rocket is a great tool for displaying PowerPoint Presentations.

A free and (relatively) easy website creator that is totally online is Weebly.

Zoho offers tools similar to Google (Docs, etc.), but has even more tools. It is a little more advanced and has quite a few more tools, but can be worthwhile.
