Every time you turn around, it seems, there are more free tools journalists can use to enhance their work online. San Jose State grad student Ryan Sholin has posted a useful list of tools for producing polls, maps, audio, video and other multimedia elements. Among his suggestions that we haven’t already mentioned elsewhere on this site:
- PollDaddy.com: For free, embeddable and unlimited online polls.
- Umapper.com: “Great Flash interface for building maps with overlays, data import.”
- Utterz.com: “Record audio from your mobile phone and feed it live to Twitter or an RSS feed you can take anywhere.”
- SproutBuilder.com: Build Flash presentations in a tool that “requires zero programming skills.”
