Organization and Productivity
Evernote is a powerful desktop and mobile program designed to organize notes and websites into logical thoughts and projects. Anytime I find something related to my interests in Instructional technology and design, I save it to Evernote and organize it based upon categories or open projects. I can take a picture, link a website or jot notes into the app on my phone, and then expand when I get to a computer. Great for people who are always "on the go" and don't want to lose a great thought or idea.
Organization and Productivity
Gliffy helps me create flowcharts, diagrams and algorithms. It is web-based and can be saved as JPEG, PNG or PDF files. I have used Gliffy to create organization to projects and as part of my 21st Century Lesson Plan, designed to help my new flight nurses with decision making.

eduCanon is an online learning environment to build and share interactive video lessons. You can start with any video and quickly create an interactive learning lesson. You can also download from video sites like YouTube or Vimeo. I like the feature that allows me to assign and track learner progress. The best thing about this is that it has a mobile app so learners can participate in eLearning virtually anywhere!
Canvas is one of the most functional Learning Management Systems (LMS) that I have used to date. As the LMS platofr for the University of Michigan, I was given space in which to create my initial training program for flight nurses. It has exceeded my needs and expectations. The site easily revolves around the author's content. It is customizeable, and works seamlessly with YouTube, Google Docs, Khan Academy and dozens of other third-party services.
