    Wondering how to give your students an online learning experience? Use Moodle, a tool available at no cost from the ISD to create and manage an online extension of your classroom. Moodle allows you to create a password protected site where you can create online assignments, have students upload documents, facilitate online discussion, take quizzes, and more. Most of what you would traditionally “hand out” to students can be made available online. Using Moodle is free and easy!

If you teach any type of accounting or personal finance unit you should take a look at Mint. Mint is a free, online application much like Quicken. Track expenses, created budgets, and see where all your money is going!

The Good Food Fight promotes healthy eating choices and allows for some cafeteria mayhem without the mess or suspensions that go along with it.
