Here's my updated version for Spring, 2016. I'm a huge user of Google Apps and Evernote. My day typically consists of email conversations and support with our account managers and customers, Google Hangouts with customers providing support, advice, strategy planning, training and professional development, and doing online research, as well as creating tools and resources, like presentations and reference materials.

Considerate Collaboration: Google Docs

ProfHacker

A large portion of the work I do exists on Google Docs – whether working on internal documents within my department, for committees, within my classes, or collaborating online to co-author articles, organize events, or provide feedback to other writers.

Adding comments through Word or Google Docs is time consuming and rarely do students check these comments.

Jing is a software you download that allows up to 5 minute recordings. Another way to screencast is through Youtube Live (formerly Google Hangouts on Air ).
