Featured Tool: CoursePress

    CoursePress is Yale’s blogging platform dedicated to supporting students enrolled in Yale courses. It continues the tradition begun with Yale’s Commons platform: it’s based on WordPress (a popular blogging platform), and it allows students in a course to talk amongst themselves, as well as to share ideas and work with the Yale community or the world-wide web.

    Featured Tool: Google Drive

    Google Drive is a lightweight office suite (like Microsoft Word, Excel, and Powerpoint) that runs inside a browser. It's main draw is the abillity to collaborate on documents with others: multiple people can edit the document at the same time, and watch each others' changes take place.
