Are you looking for more engaging ways to provide your students with choice-based assignments and activities? One way to provide students with more meaningful, self-directed learning opportunities is to create an Interactive Learning Menu in Thinglink. Interactive Learning Menus, also known as Choice Boards, provide students with a variety of options to choose from based on their individual interests.
Have you been searching for an easy way to acquire 360° images, but don’t have a 360° camera? In this blog post you will learn the simple steps needed to download a 360° image from Google Street View (GSV) using Pano Fetch and upload it to ThingLink. This process only takes one minute and will provide you with a vast library of high quality 360° images covering many topics.
If you are an educator with a ThingLink Pro or Premium plan, you can onboard students by inviting them to your group with an Invite Code. For quick reference, here is the video we sent to all new Pro and Premium users to teach you how to get started with our new features. Didn’t get the email?

Did you know that there are over 6,500,000 images, videos, and 360s on ThingLink? Not only is ThingLink the place to create interactive masterpieces, it’s also the place to find inspiration from others. Now, not only can you search our database of images, videos, and 360s, you can also filter your results to find exactly what you’re looking for! Use this feature when searching for that perfect content to remix.
ThingLink users have made projects on everything from art history to zoology. Enter a search term in the box at the top of ThingLink.
Now, with the new search filter, select the type of media you’re looking for. Use the check boxes for images, videos, 360 images, and 360 videos to determine your results.
When tagging 360 images, often the hardest step is the photography, or finding images to tag. Before creating your own images, use the search to see what other ThingLink users have already created. If a user marks their image as public, you will be able to use the remix function to copy their image into your account. Delete the previous person’s tags and get started on your own creation!
While the most popular ThingLink format is standard images, there are also thousands of videos and 360s already tagged. If you’re new to tagging videos and want some guidance, searching without a filter may leave the video results lost in the crowd. Filter to get exactly what you’re looking for the first time without too much sifting.
Now that you’re acquainted with the new search features, get searching and start tagging! If you want to learn more about our advanced features for join us for an upcoming webinar.
