Tools mentioned:
(more links and examples coming)

A place to call "home":

Course Management Systems (CMS) such as Blackboard
Wikis www.wikispaces.com
If your school doesn't have an institution wide CMS, then the easiest way for you to manage your instruction, provide access to information, documents, links and more is to set up a wiki for your class.
More information on wikis here.


Photo albums:

Flickr www.flickr.com
You don't need to add your personal photos to be able to benefit from signing up for Flickr. Start with an account and create some "galleries" (collections of other people's images) for your class. Use the advance search option to look for images shared with a Creative Commons license (learn how to do that here). You can add your own photos and choose whether to make them public or private.

The Digital "Pensieve":

How good is your memory? Did you come across a web address that you want to remember for later? How about an image, a page or article that you want to share with others? Having a way to CAPTURE digital sources can be a big help.
