Have you ever seen a fancy infographic and wondered, “How can I make one of those?!”

Now you can! I recently discovered a webtool from the University of Idaho’s virtual professional development conference. One of the seminars was on the top 10 free tools to use for your program.

Youtube
Pinterest
Prezi
Hot Potatoes
Jing
Quizlet
Powtoon
Slideshare
Wikispaces
Piktochart
