There is no shortage of to-do list tools available on the web today. Some are parts of larger services (see Gmail and Evernote) while others are stand-alone services (see Remember the Milk). One new stand-alone service that I tried this morning is called Flask. Flask is a simple tool for making to-do lists and sharing them with others.
To create a to-do list on Flask just go to the site and start writing your list. You don’t have to create an account to use Flask. Unique URLs are assigned to each list that you create. To share your lists click the share button to send the link to your list to others. You can also embed the list into a blog post or webpage.
Applications for Education
To-do list services are only good if your students actually use them. Simple services like Flask are good because they’re easy for students to use without having to remember a username and password. If you want to have your students contribute to a group to-do list, embed Flask into a blog post.
