While ClassTools is a free site, in most cases you do have to create your product in one sitting. Most of them take no time at all if you have an idea of information you want to include. Fakebook would be the most time consuming item to create. If the students are creating a Fakebook, it would be a good idea to have them produce a rough draft first. Students must add an image, profile, 1 friend and 1 post before they can save their Fakebook. They will be give a URL for their person, so they can retrieve the account in another work session. Once the students create their Fakebook profile, they will be able to embed it on a webpage, blog or wiki.
Here are samples of some products you can create with ClassTools:
