Tools of the Trade.

Just a few links to some helpful online gadgets that can help you schedule and brainstorm for your eCore classes...

* More than just a to-do list, Toodledo also allows you to prioritize tasks and improve your productivity.

* Thinkature can be used "as a collaboration environment, a meeting room, a personal web-based whiteboard, or something entirely new."

* Can't think of quite the right word? Try the Big Huge Thesaurus, where they provide you with not only synonyms and antonyms - but rhymes too!

* The Visual Thesaurus is an interactive dictionary and thesaurus that helps one to understand word relationships in a more spatial way – great for brainstorming and drawing links you may not have thought of otherwise.

* FreeMind is a premier free mind-mapping software, described by its developers as a "high productivity tool" that prioritizes and tracks your progress on the task at hand.

* The Visual Understanding Environment (VUE) is an Open Source project "focused on creating flexible tools for managing and integrating digital resources in support of... learning and research... [and] provides a flexible visual environment for structuring, presenting, and sharing digital information."
