Thought it would be good if forum members listed the websites they have been using most recently. There is so much stuff out there and often I get many of my best links from this forum.

Here are three sites that I've found recently:

http://www.orb.com/

- I've used this to set up a system whereby I can access my home PC from school - I can now view all of my media files (pics, video, audio, recorded tv) in school - on data projector straight from my home pc - which ever classroom I am in. No more transferring stuff between computers/cds/memory sticks etc. I can also set up 'areas' to allow other people to access certain folders on my hard drive - passwords can be created. I'm only just getting to grips with it, but it does seem very useful. You will need windows xp service pack 2 or windows media centre installed though.



http://thegreenbutton.com/default.aspx

This is another site I've just started using. It is for the windows media centre operating system but has an excellent forum with lots of technical stuff on using the OS.




On a different theme this site is a good resource which I've recently found and will be using for teaching A2 Politics:

http://www.audioanarchy.org/

Free Mp3 readings of anarchist texts and broadcasts about anarchism - sixth formers will be able to learn while on the bus!

So what sites are you using at the moment?
