Some Curated CEE Tools

iN.LAB curates educational technology (edtech) tools that are cost-effective, to help reduce costs in implementing blended learning, and easy to use in classroom, online and workplace learning. These tools would also help kickstart adoption of innovative blended learning & facilitation practices. We call them CEE (short for Cost-Effective and Easy-to-use) tools.
