Getting Started 

Lino is a free service that allows teachers to create a canvas of online multimedia sticky notes for brainstorming, collaborating, or assessing student knowledge.  In addition to basic text, the sticky notes you place on your canvas can contain videos, images, and file attachments.  Unlike some similar sticky notes services, Lino allows you to alter the size and color of your fonts.  You can use Lino's built in calendar tool to set due dates on your sticky notes.  Teachers can share lino canvases with students who can post without signing in to an account.
