Types of Tools

Communication and Collaboration

Effective communication is critical in the classroom and online. These tools can help keep students connected to faculty and their peers.

Open Source

Open-source communities cooperate to develop software and make it available to users without license fees. These tools are available for use with no cost to the user.


If you are unsure whether an online tool is right for your class, or whether the tool is approved for restricted data such as student records, refer to UF Information Technology’s eTools page.
