Screen Toaster - Screen Capture

I have previously mentioned tools for screen capture. Screen Toaster is yet another tool that can record what is on your screen with audio voice over. This tool is entirely online and easy to use. The site permits users to record then store the video (webcast) online either publically or with access via a URL. There is also the offer to download the video as a .mov or .swf file or to upload to YouTube or ScreenToaster.

Hairdressing Training

The Hairdressing Training website offers a range of downloadable resources to support the teaching of hairdressing. These include "photographic step by step guides combined with lessons and handy tips and techniques". The site also provides a discussion area and student self-tests.

If you teach this subject the site could be a really useful resource.

Saving useful links - Delicious

The Delicious website enables users to save links to useful websites which can be accessed over the internet form anywhere at a later time. This social bookmarking tool enables users to share their bookmarked list with others and to view those created by others.

Given its nature as a social bookmarking site, it is worth checking that you can access this through institutional firewalls if you wish to access it at work.
