Online Classroom Tools: Nicenet

Nicenet.org is a very simple online classroom tool with a more formal feel than Edmodo.  It has the following features:

  • accessible from any computer with an internet connection
  • forum based activites allow students and teachers to do peer editing or respond to questions so that everyone can read all responses.
  • Allows teacher to post links. Teacher may allow students to as well if desired.
  • Allows teacher to post documents for download
  • Allows you to post schedules of due dates
  • Provides private messaging service.
  • Requires no email for registration. Teacher provides a key that students enter.
  • Requires students to put in name for identification, allowing teacher to keep track of who is doing what.
  • Because the site is not visually “heavy” with images, ads and media, it loads quickly and is almost never down.
