What are web applications
What Are Web Applications?

  • Allow you to perform tasks or create objects without software.

  • Often known as “Web 2.0” applications.

  • Often have an element of social interaction.

  • Accessible from anywhere.

  • Usually FREE!


  • Applications go up and down.

  • Applications get bought out.

  • Web applications sometimes allow students to interact with other people online. Most tools have privacy settings to keep minors safe.

  • Students’ privacy should be considered. Some tools can be completely private, but others not.


  • Applications may create thing that can’t leave the confines of the particular web site (e.g./ can’t be downloaded to a disc/dvd/etc…)

  • Students with computers at home may get to spend more time on projects than students without since it’s easily accessible.
