Go to the start page: a "https://www.educatorstechnology.com/" to look at all the entries; the author keeps the collection and discussions up to date. There are topics and deeper "dive in" for specific tools such as apps and wordcloud options.
It's a useful resource for anyone learning, teaching, consulting, or presenting.

The user/learner/instructor must try the tools and tailor to each situation. There are a lot of options; it is up to the user to figure out what would work best. Perhaps the author could emphasize this challenge a bit more.
