Keep your students on task with Timer, a simple and stylish timer application. Timer works much like Class Timer in that you can easily set a countdown timer that plays an obnoxious noise when it hits zero. However, Timer’s interface is much more slick. For starters, you can program the time right into the URL — will give you a countdown of two minutes. If you just put a number in the URL (, for example), it will assume you want that number of seconds. Once the timer starts, you get a clean black-and-white numeral display, as well as a status bar for a graphical representation of how much time is left.

You can use Timer to let students know how much time they have left to finish a test, or you can give them a set amount of time to get organized for the next activity. Or, I suppose, to boil an egg. –BILL FERRIS Timer
