"Voki is an educational tool for teachers and students, that can be used to enhance instruction, engagement, and lesson comprehension. Voki can be used in class (for student work), as an animated presentation tool, for student assignments, and as a virtual supervised discussion forum (Voki Hangouts). Voki characters can look like historical figures, cartoons, animals, and more. Give your Voki a voice by recording your voice, or using text-to-speech (over 30 languages supported, hundreds of voices to choose from). Students have fun creating their speaking characters & making them talk. Teachers can direct this activity through assignments, presentations, and dialog groups (once again – Voki Hangouts)."

Remind is a platform for communication and learning that reaches students and families where they are. Built for education with mobile-first messaging that supports learning wherever it happens, Remind connects the people and resources that help give every student the opportunity to succeed. Remind was founded in 2011 by brothers Brett Kopf and David Kopf. Diagnosed with dyslexia as a child, Brett struggled for years in school. When he met a teacher who built a strong relationship with him and others in his life—both in and outside of the classroom—it transformed the way he approached learning. Brett and David created Remind to make the same experience available to every student.

Sutori (formerly HSTRY) is a web-based tool for creating and sharing interactive timelines and presentations. It was originally geared toward history classes, but it's since been repositioned as a tool to develop interactive stories. The developer's premade stories are mostly traditional timelines (users scroll down to navigate through them like a social media feed or webpage), but the community contributions cover all subject areas and range from presentations of knowledge to organizing daily schedules for classrooms. To get started, teachers can create classes and send students codes to access shared timelines and create their own. A starter template walks users through the creation process, and the timelines are easy to edit and share. There are tons of options for adding content to the timeline (some only by subscription), including text, images, videos, links, quiz questions, and more. The site's free subscription includes basic features for sharing, collaboration, and student management; paid features include more options for embedding content, analyzing student work, and using premade, standards-aligned content and templates.
