    https://www.photopea.com/ - not tried on a Chromebook but we advise students to use it for homework exercises if they don't have access to Photoshop and seems to work ok on PCs.

    Fair point. I've nothing to do with xma. It just seemed to mirror some of our experience.

    https://edpuzzle.com

    EdPuzzle allows you to 'add question' points to Youtube videos.
    There are lots already made.
    Pupils work independently on Chromebooks and the questions appear at key points.
    The teacher can see progress from their account.
    They recently added 'live mode' - everyone watches on the IWB and answers together.
    They've also added a session where pupils don't need to log in - just use a link.

    WooClap is free for teachers.
    https://www.wooclap.com

    Once you've signed up with your Google account, email them, and have them upgrade your account.
    You can then set 'self-paced' sessions on the Chromebooks.
    Excellent set of interactive questions for getting feedback.
    WooClap is particularly good for secondary and above.

    Gear Sketch
    http://www.gearsket.ch

    Amazing, simple page for exploring gears.
    Draw some circles and they'll change to gears.
    Interlock them and set them going.
    OR draw a belt around the gears to create a gear chain.
