Create & Curate Collections of Everyone’s Images

ThingLink channels have just gotten better! Now ThingLink users can curate and create collections of anyone’s images with a new Add to Channel button available under every public ThingLink image. This feature allows users to easily add anyone’s image to their own channel.

Add Any Image to Your Channel

Now when users view any image on ThingLink EDU, the Add to Channel link appears below it. Just click on the link and add that image to any of your channels.

Add to Channel

Ways to Use Add to Channel

  • Collect and curate content of all kinds.
  • Create a collection of interactive images to build concepts or launch a project.
  • Share and reuse images created by members of your PLN.
  • Redesign curriculum by creating interactive learning guides.
  • Quickly capture links to student assignments and assemble them into organized channel.

Integrate a Google Form

I tested the usefulness of this feature when assembling a channel of interactive images for our ThingLink Interactive Image Slam yesterday. The links to images for sharing during the broadcast were collected through a Google Form. Clicking on the link in the form took me straight to the image I needed. I clicked on Add to Channel and voila, an instant  collection of images was created! Explore this example and enjoy this new ThingLink feature.

 

Interactive Image Slam Channel

Explore the images created and shared by talented members of the ThingLink EDU Community during the first interactive image slam. If you have a great image to share and would like to participate in a future image slam, please fill out the form found in the channel.

Watch this channel grow as more images are added and recorded video from the broadcast is tagged on top of the images!
