Finding more tools
There are thousands of tools available and you can generally find a tool for just about any task you need to accomplish. You can do a simple search online for the type of tool you need, but you'll find ideas more quickly if you can locate some sites that compile lists of tools. Here are two of my favorites.
50 Ways to Tell a Digital Story
Alan Levine has put together an amazing list of Web 2.0 tools for telling stories in a variety of ways. To test them out, he tells a story about his dog, Domino, using each of the tools. Click on the Domino links to see examples of the work each tool can create. He's compiled other examples as well, and provides a link to each tool. Check his list of tools (now up to 67) here: http://cogdogroo.wikispaces.com/StoryTools (note: this website is currently migrating to a new site and you may want to keep track of both sites until everything has been converted: http://50ways.wikispaces.com)
This is a huge database of Web 2.0 tools. Search by keyword, or browse through the tags. Your search will bring up logos for matching tools. Hold your mouse over an icon for a short description, or click for a more detailed description and a link to the site. http://www.go2web20.net/
Directory of Learning and Performance Tools
This site, maintained by the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies, has links to more than 2000 online tools for learning. Some are free, but others are not. Free tools and top picks are flagged. There is a wide variety of tools here that go beyond those appropriate for telling interpretive stories, however, it's a good place to look when you have a specific need. http://c4lpt.co.uk/directory-of-learning-performance-tools/
This site will point you to all sorts of tools for "scholarly" work. It includes tools for research, but also those for presenting information and telling stories. Suggestions are not limited to free tools, although many are, but they also include top-of-the line commercial applications. If you're not sure how to get the job done, check this site for ideas. http://dirt.projectbamboo.org
