It depends whether you are an educator looking to create a education portal website to teach students or if you are a student and you just want to learn from other online educators.

If you are an educator, the following list of education portal platform could be used to educate students online:

  1. Animoto Plus - One of the most popular web tools/apps for creating slideshows with free educational portal for schools.
  2. Answer Pad - A fantastic Student Response and Assessment System that uses an innovative graphical interface to help turn a teacher's classroom paperless (by doing testing on mobile devices) and assess students on any number of subjects in real-time using a free mobile app with digital portfolio capabilities.
  3. Been for Education - A innovative site  for collaboratively browsing the web with your class to incorporate different styles of teaching (i.e. Guided Instruction, Blended/Flipped Learning, etc.)  Best of all, educators create/monitor all student account activity.
