Technology enhanced learning. Which tools are free, support teaching and result in motivated students?

An overview:

Corinth offers a wonderful alternative. This app will show you the human biology, plants, animal biology, etc. You'll able to focus on cells, respiratory, skeletal, muscular and urinary system.

You're now able to draw (pen) or comment (note). Hitting the save button will save the result as an image. 

 

Snip is another great (free) tool from the Office Mix team. It allows one to capture a window or area of your screen. Right, a screenshot? Yes, but Snip allows to annotate, record your voice and share it as a video.
