Movenote Adventskalender 2013 - Thinglink Eftersom det börjar närma sig jul så börjar tankarna kring den digitala adventskalendern dyka upp, både i mitt huvud och diskussioner i FB-grupper. I år har jag tänkt att använda mig av online-sidan Thinglink I Thinglink kan man skapa interaktiva bilder genom att ladda upp en bild och sen lägga dit olika taggar på den med hänvisningar till olika webbsidor. T ex kan man länka till olika Youtubeklipp, en googlesite med en uppgift, bilder eller musik, så länge det finns en webblänk så fungerar det. Hur gör man då? Man går in på och skapar där ett gratiskonto. När man gjort det kommer man till sin startsida där alla ens interaktiva bilder kommer att ligga, uppe i högra hörnet hittar man nu knappen "Create", tryck där! Nu är det dags att välja foto. Har du fixat en bild du gillar? Först väljer du högst upp vad din bild ska heta, det gör du i rutan över bilden. Nu är det dags att lägga till taggar, det gör du genom att klicka på bilden där du vill att taggen ska ligga.
