Interactive media platform ThingLink is today announcing support for 3D-model annotation. In addition to images and videos, ThingLink content creators can now also enhance 3D models with informational hotspots, including text and voice notes, video embeds, links and questions, and share them on websites, LMS, social media, and Microsoft Teams.
Using ThingLink for your business? Great news: Our team has curated a collection of top 10 examples of ready-to-use Canva design templates that you can access for free!
Whether you're pitching a start-up, creating marketing and sales materials, communicating internally, or creating reports for decision-makers, interactive multimedia can help you say it better. Integrating Canva into ThingLink's creation flow means that now it is even easier for ThingLink users to create professional-looking hypermedia experiences - not only for education teams but also for business, marketing and HR teams!
Of the many ways ThingLink has been used to create wonderful interactive learning experiences, we picked top 10 and converted them to special Canva templates you can use with students!
Canva is a top favorite graphic design tool mainly because it is so easy to use by anyone, designers and non-designers alike. The same goes with ThingLink - we make interactive and immersive media creation easy for everyone. In addition to our shiny new integration that brings Canva directly to ThingLink's editor flow, our team has curated a collection of top 10 use examples for education and turned these into cool interactive design templates that are available for teachers on the free Canva and ThingLink education accounts!
Luke Edwards recently wrote in Tech and Learning, “ThingLink is a powerful way to use technology to make education more engaging. It does this by allowing teachers to turn any image, video, or 360-degree VR shot into a learning experience.” A good summary of what the tool allows users to do, but with the right team, students, or educators it can be so much more.
We are delighted to present the second of our video series covering specifically the teaching methods underpinning uses of interactive media in technical, vocational, and higher education.
The 'teaching in action' videos presented here, with narration, take you through a journey looking at virtual tours, documenting learning, and creating immersive learning materials.
Last month we announced a partnership with Canva - the super popular visual communications platform from Australia whose vision is to empower everyone to design. By adding a Canva button directly in the ThingLink creation flow, making professional-looking interactive graphics and learning materials became even quicker and easier!
This year we partnered with image library Unsplash to give you instant easy access to over a million searchable, free images for use in all your ThingLinks.
We know that it can sometimes be tricky to source the perfect great quality royalty-free image for your interactive creations. But with our new Unsplash library feature, you can search and choose high resolution images that will always be free - even for all commercial uses.
