View and Share Websites Without Ads

I send out a periodic newsletter titled Web 2.0 Resources for Teachers.  In a recent edition of this newsletter, I shared information about PageFlip-Flap.  PageFlip-Flap allows you to turn documents, images, and videos into an interactive flipbook.   Soon after the newsletter was sent, a reader emailed and asked me if I knew other applications that did the same thing without ads.  With PageFlip-Flap, your flipbook has ads along the side.   I recommended that he try FlipSnak, a similar application.

Recently, I found out about AdOut.org.  This is an application that takes the ads off websites.  You get a link that you can share with others.  With AdOut.org, you can share sites with your students that you may not have used before because of unwanted ads.

You can subscribe to my  Web 2.0 Resources for Teachers Newsletter by clicking on the link.

Seems odd then that AdOut.org is filled with ads itself. Huh!?

It is a bit ironic. I guess all of the free services we love have to make a profit somehow. This is still a nice tool for teachers who haven't been able to use a particular resource because it's filled with ads.

I just changed the link so it takes you directly to the Ad-free browser.
