SignNow-Sign and Fill PDF & Word Documents has been an incredible resource for electronic document signing. There are a number of electronic signature apps but this is by far the best one I’ve used. As Head of Program Development with my organization, and currently in the process of developing an international program from the ground up, I am constantly signing agreements with overseas organizations and institutions. This app allows me to seamlessly open the electronic file, sign, date, and email back to the other party for signing.

The key features of this app are:

  • The quick menu (which offers Insert Signature/Insert Text/Insert Today’s Date/Insert Check Mark)
  • Stores multiple saved signatures and initials
  • Beautiful and user-friendly interface

Trello | Online Project Management

Trello is a free web-based project management application using the kanban management paradigm.

The online interactive interface is akin to a white board with individual cards (corresponding to tasks) which allow users to add content, labels, create/update task lists, mark project elements completed, assign tasks to project members and more. It is a simple, visual way to project manage for individuals and ideal for collaborative group project.

Rather than sending project members multiple group emails regarding specific project elements, all the details related to one project component can be saved on the task card and updated in real time. This program can be used for projects ranging from website development, re-branding projects, video production, new program development, and more.

The program also provides mobile app platforms on iPhone and Android.

Sugata Mitra’s TED talk, Build a School in the Cloud, on developing a learning lab in the cloud encourages students to use technology as a tool to teach one other. An educational researcher well before his time, Mitra  experimented with the use of computers to facilitate learning in rural India in the 90s. His longitudinal study revealed some key ways in which technology can enhance learning.
