I spent some time playing around with a service called Conceptboard. Introducing it in an email, Kathleen Fritzsche writes, Conceptboard offers a blank work space (like an online whiteboard) on which you can create, review and discuss your ideas and concepts. Furthermore, you can upload any document (e.g. PDF, PPT, Word docs, images) to work on it. Or you just start to scribble." It supports both live collaboration (up to five guest collaborators in the free plan) and asynchronous access. It would work well with an audio conference. You can access the demo board illustrated above by clicking here.

How to start an amazing class blog
Learnboost, June 12, 2012.
Good instructional post describing how to set up and run a class blog. I like the approach: to the people that say they have too many administrative tasks, the response is that the blog is the answer, not the problem. "Putting more administrative tasks online means teachers have more time to spend with students, creating engaging lessons, and connecting with parents and students." I would like to have seen the post go beyond the introduction of the blogging tools and offer specific advice on how to manage each administrative task online. It would have been easy, especially in the context of Learnboost, which offers a gradebook, lesson plans, parent interactions, and interoperability with Google apps.
