Official bummer. I’ve scoured the internet for 3 weeks. There isn’t a comprehensive alternative to PushBullet. There is a ledger cramped full of suitors providing a superior experience for specific tasks. Do one thing great, or do everything ok? In fairness, PushBullet does many things well.
When Push Bullet switched to a for pay pro model I couldn’t deal. I was hot under the collar, steam flowing from my izod size 15 ½. My feelings are best summed up by Mikey from the major motion film The Goonies.
The second I fork over the 5 bucks to Push Bullet for their host of services it’s done. I’ll be riding up a bucket. The journey finished. Genius Web Annotator is a gem I stumbled upon. It’s our time, sort of. Either way, Genius Web Annotator is worth a peek.
As a teacher you have content to share. Wouldn’t it be nice to have students talk about something other than Star Wars? Genius Web Annotator is your light saber, sparking discussion for any class.
Genius lets you add line by line annotations. Highlight text, then add feedback. Share your web pages with annotations as a unique url, there is no need for your students to create an account. Just like the quote above, I used Genius Web Annotator. Click it for a demo. Social media is locked and loaded, sharing with others on Twitter or on Facebook is simple. Your quotes can recieve upvotes. Direct students to respond to posts before class.
Genius has a user friendly dashboard too. Profiles show user activity and list previous annotations. From the dashboard you can find others to follow, creating an opportunity for a digital conversation. Connect with others expanding the net you cast when searching for resources.
