Cool Tools

I am a geek at heart. I love finding new software to play with and find a way to incorporate into training or training development. Let’s look at a few tools I discovered recently that you can use in your upcoming training.

Post-it Plus

Like many trainers, I have a pretty big affinity for sticky notes. After training, I often take photos of my participants’ sticky note creations and then send out the JPG in an email for reference. As an image, this is a static reference without an easy ability to update. Well, it used to be a static resource. With the Post-it Plus app, you and your participants can keep the conversation going outside of the classroom by updating your sticky note creation. Check out this video below.

Picular

The self-proclaimed Google, but for colors, Picular has been buzzing around my Twitter feed all week. Picular.co has a simple interface with a familiar looking search bar and no menus or About Us section. Picular uses your search terms to crawl Google Images for the top results and returns a color palate base on the top results. It isn’t perfect, but it is a fun way to draw inspiration.

I look forward to playing with these new tools and seeing where they take my next training. What new tools are you using? Let’s talk about it in the comments below!
