This week in ECMP 455 we got introduced to some amazing tools that I wish I would have knew about before! Some of these included: hola, screencastify and Ad block plus. All of these are different extensions that you can get with Chrome. Hola is an extension that allows you to have access to watch things that are blocked in Canada and other countries in the world. Screencastify is an extension that allows you to screencast or take a video of your screen for whatever you are doing. And lastly, ad block plus is an extension that allows you block advertisements.

Other tools that we talked about that were very interesting were storify.com, which allows you to create stories. This is a great tool to create a story for something such as a twitter chat. It allows you to take different tweets and put them together in a story. Apart from creating these stories by combining different tweets together you can also write captions throughout the stories. This is a great tool that allows you to organize things of your interest all in one place.

These are just a few of the different tools that we talked about during Tuesday’s class. There are many more that were mentioned in class but the reason I mentioned only these ones was because these are the tools that would be beneficial for myself.

I really like the chrome extensions as well. One I also like is called disconnect. It stops sites like facebook and twitter from getting information on sites you visit
