Google Tone - easily sharing link with groups of people

 Google Tone is an easy way to share links with a large group of people.  Yes, you can use sites like or to shorten a link, but I have found that some schools actually block these sites because questionable site could be shortened and the filtering system wouldn't catch it.  What Google Tone does is use the speakers on your computer and the microphone on your students computers to send and receive a tone.  Your computer will make what I'm going to call a robot noise (beep, bop, bop) and the students' computers will hear that sound and go to a specific website.  You and your students do need to be logged in to your Google accounts and have this app installed into your Chrome browser.  If you are looking for more information, you can view the video below.
