Quick Maps uses Google Maps to let students create and annotate maps. The best part about Quick Maps is that the students DO NOT have to create an account. Each map can be saved and assigned a unique URL. Students can then bookmark/save that URL for further editing or viewing map. However users do have the option to create an account in which all created maps would be saved. Embed codes are also given to each map for placement in blogs, wikis, etc. Quick Maps offers a great alternative to posters, and other map making sites that aren't as user friendly for younger students.
