Tools for online journalists

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.”

Check out the entire list over at Invisible Inkling.
