  • GroupZap: This is made up of a number of great tools including drag-and-drop images and files from your computer, drawings, coloured notes, and exporting and embedding. Add a custom background, reply a history of how the board was created, and more. An email address is needed to join, but since you don’t need to receive a registration email, a fake email account works just fine (something@something.com). Boards are only active for 7 days.

  • Padlet: One of the most well known of all of the stickynote sites. Add notes to a wall and others can go on and add theirs as well. The administrator needs to register with an email, but other can add without registration. Works well with tablets and phones. My review of Padlet
