Labels?Hangouts on Air: Stream video to the world, for free, and archive to YouTube after.Google Moderator: Consider using this for big events, rather than just using a microphone on the floor.Forms.

7 Corel SuiteCorel is the alternative to Adobe recommended by the Committee on Information Technology.Paint Shop Pro is a great photo editor.Visual Studio Pro is a better video editor than Premiere for 97% of campus. Full featured, easier to learn, and performs better on mainstream computers. Premiere is now targeted at full-time professionals running really serious hardware.Corel Draw is a very strong alternative to Illustrator.Corel Paint. We hear it is good, but would appreciate your assessment.PDF Fusion: good PDF creator and document bundler, but it cannot be used for fillable forms or NSF and NIH proposals.Corel Website Creator: we got it for free, but ignore. Use Dreamweaver CS4 or the free Kompozer for traditional web editing, or perhaps Wordpress or Google Sites.
