The Digital Research Tools Wiki

The DIRT (Digital Research Tools) wiki is a fantastic resource that I stumbled upon a couple of days ago. This is how the site describes itself:

"This wiki collects information about tools and resources that can help scholars (particularly in the humanities and social sciences) conduct research more efficiently or creatively. Whether you need software to help you manage citations, author a multimedia work, or analyze texts, Digital Research Tools will help you find what you're looking for"

In fact this is a bit of an understatement, as the wiki is a fantastically rich source of information and links to a huge range of tools that will be of interest to almost any educator.

Here are just the first few categories:
Within a few moments of starting to search I had already fond this really nice tool for creating slide shows from Diigo bookmarks

I think it could probably take me the rest of the year to search through and write about all the interesting things on the site.
Really fantastic resource. You can't fail to find something useful on DiRT.
