Part three of our Special Summer Series on free hosting services.
Next up, a k-12 exclusive hosting service, SqoolTools. According to the site, “Sqool” is actually an acronym (not just a homophone) for “Supporting Quality Online Opportunities for Learning”.
The business offers additional edtech consulting services [http://sqooltechs.com/] and sites and several tiers of paid Moodle hosting above their free, basic plan. Check out their Youtube channel [http://www.youtube.com/user/sqooltechs] or even their hosted video site, http://sqooltube.com/. All in all they’ve created a resource-rich collection of educational tools and resources.
