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.
  4. Biteslide - A fantastic site where educators create student accounts for making stunning slide book presentations that are ideal for Project Based Learning.
  5. BoomWriter - A terrific site for grades 3rd-8th that has students collaboratively writing a story/book while voting chapter by chapter on which one should be included.  Educators get to create the student the accounts and a finished product can then be published online and ordered.
  6. Buncee for Education - A wonderful site/app for creating beautiful/interactive presentations that can be embedded into a site or blog and educators can make and track the student accounts/assignments.

  11. EDpuzzle - One of my favorite safe site that does not require a student email to take a digital video and "make it your own".  This can be done by editing, cropping, adding a voice, etc.  Educators also have the ability to embed a quiz into the video for assessment and Flipped Learning.
