ShortText allows you post text online, with minimum fuss. You can also insert a picture and a video into your post as well. When you’re done, simply click on the create URL button to get your online page. You don’t need to sign up or sign in and this is what makes this tool more powerful to use with our students. 

You can also make your post private and allow comments which make interaction better. The only con is that once you publish your text, you won’t be able to edit it. You will have to create another page. It also has a Chrome extension and a Firefox Add-on that will make it easier to post for us.

This tool is great for instant blogging, writing an essay, creating party invitations, provide information on any topic, creative writing with a picture or a video, creating your one page website.

Hope you and your students enjoy!
