    Online collaborative writing space. Great for group projects--it's an online word processor that allows for collaboration on the document. Like a wiki in concept, except that Writeboard is a private workspace.

    NoteMesh
    NoteMesh is a free service that allows college students in the same classes to share notes with each other. It works by creating a wiki for individual classes that users can edit.
    PageFlakes
    This is a great tool, just recently re-released. PageFlakes allows you to create your own startup page, complete with modules (flakes) that put all your most needed content at your fingertips. For example, you can include a to do list on your start page, your contacts, your Box.net account, a grade tracker, and the list goes on. You can share your page with others, and give them the right to edit if you like.

    Pbwiki
    A nice, free wiki option if you choose not to use the Wikispaces account you get through Edublogs (but why wouldn’t you?)

    Writely
    Online bare bones word processor. Good for students who may not have Word at home. This one also allows collaborative editing EASILY--your collaborators don't even have to register for their own accounts. You just enter their email addresses and they are sent a link to the collaborative document on Writely.

    Gradefix
    I really like this one for students. This software is basically an academic organizer, allowing students to create a schedule that ties assignments to courses and labels them as homework, exam, reading, etc.. It also asks students to estimate the amount of time the given assignment will take. It would be a great tool, especially for procrastinators. What would make it even better? The ability to sync with my Palm.
    Instacalc
    This online calculator looks cool and I'm sure math and science teachers out there could find great ways to use it. You can even embed it in your webpage or save a link.

    NanoLearning
    I haven't tried this one, but it looks cool. Here's the description straight from TechCrunch: "an easy way to make educational games or training modules in Flash. Users provide the content (text, graphics, audio, video, questions and answers) and NanoLearning provides the templates and forms to create your modules. one example, but I can imagine lots of people rapidly developing tutorials and interactive presentations with this tool."

    NoodleTools
    This is a really effective tool for creating MLA and APA citations, for both students and educators. There's a fee-based version with even more functionality that can be purchased as an individual, as a classroom teacher for all classes, or as a school or district.
