EdTech Tool Uses:Remember The Milk is an excellent task and 'to do' list management service (one of the first sites to offer such functionality and it has continued to develop over a number of years). RTM allows users to create multiple task lists. Added tasks can be edited as desired to include various fields and tasks can also be organised by tags. Tasks can be postponed, and RTM will inform users of the number of times a given task has been postponed. Remember The Mil integrates with a number of other services, including Gmail, Evernote and Outlook. Apps are available for IOS, Android and Blackberry (on IOS devices you add tasks to RTM with Siri). You can also share your tasks with others and get reminders and notifications via email, SMS and IM. The 'Quick Add' bookmarklet allows you to add tasks quickly from your browser's bookmarks bar by adding important dates and times you find on the web to your RTM account. Twitter integration enables you to add new tasks, interact with existing tasks and receive reminders via Twitter, while a browser add-on for Chrome and Firefox lets you manage your RTM tasks alongside your emails.
