Creating content...


This tool you're looking at now. It is awesome for sharing, in fact colleagues are making whole lessons through Tackk and using it to teach. Below are a few useful items to check out...the Tackk FAQs and some links to a few Tackks you may find of interest.

There are many great features and it acts as a stream of information to share in a number of ways. You can add a gallery of images to stimulate discussion or include more complex elements like various types of media... See the Tackks below for examples.

GoConqr Revision site

A intuitive and relatively simple to use revision site to use with classes when revising. Great for making flash cards, quizzes and mind-maps. They can be easily shared and copied...no collaboration as yet but still good for working in groups or independently.


A great tool for reflection and creating short presentations - Record yourself or just your voice delivering your presentations or explanations...

...Teachers can use it for short presentations or tutorials to explain concepts, for flipping learning or to set as a homework task for students to complete and share. It is great to ask students to create 'how to' or explanation videos similar to this one I created:


A great tool for assessing learning and getting instant feedback.
