Technology Teaching Tools

Technology Teaching Tools are short, online, asynchronous modules highlighting a technology teaching tool along with relevant pedagogical implementation strategies. Some of the CIRT Technology Tools discussed below rely on freeware downloads. Prior to utilizing these technologies, you are encouraged to understand the potential risks associated with freeware; see the article "Why Free Software Downloads Aren't Always Safe" for an overview of key considerations.


  • MoocNote is an online video library program that allows the user to create a video playlist from sources like YouTube, Google Drive, or Dropbox.

Pedagogical Ideas

In the classroom, MoocNote can be used in a several ways. Some ideas include the following:

  • Course Materials / Supplemental Sources- Many online and classroom instructors now include video presentations as part of the course learning experience and this program can create specific ‘libraries’ for different courses to be used by students.
  • Listed Resources – Video files can be arranged in a list to show all available video resources in the MoocNote link for a particular class or program.
  • Post questions related to a video / videos online – the link that includes the video(s) can be posted in public forums to get feedback and reactions to the videos shown in the MoocNote file.
