Description and Overview

Trello logoTrello is a tool allowing users to organize and manage almost anything Kanban-style with the use of a board, lists, and cards (think of it like a visual/interactive file drawer organization system). For education purposes, users have the ability to collaborate, share documents seamlessly, assign steps in a process with due dates attached and see student progress in real time.

Great for
  • Students using Trello as a visual project-based, collaboration, and discussion group work tool [see this example]
  • Faculty using Trello as a syllabus planning tool for full curriculum or individual teaching components
  • Transforming your entire to-do workflow
Classroom Uses:
  • Easily collaborate on projects – especially where steps in a process are critical
  • Use the tool to have students provide peer feedback where @mentions can easily be used to differentiate student names
