Duke faculty are invited to participate in a pilot of the educational application ThingLink, a tool for creating augmented images and videos. ThingLink allows users to tag (standard or 360º) photos and videos with embedded text, videos, images, plus links to more information. The product is a media-rich item that can be shared by URL, inserted into a website, or shared privately with students.
ThingLink offers free accounts to instructors who wish to create media-rich items. But with your Duke ThingLink account, you’ll be able to manage courses and assignments to invite students to view your ThingLinks, or you can ask them to create their own. Pilot participants can use the tool now, all year, or start in Spring 2020. The pilot will evaluate the effectiveness of the tool for teaching and help Duke decide whether or not to support the tool in the future.
This ThingLink was made from an image of Duke Kunshan University:
