Inspired by the #etmooc projects my students have just started to use with the interactive poster software thinglink.com . As I’m currently teaching a research module my students have been using the presentation tool to create posters that summarise their findings and share links to the sources that they have used – this has included embedding webpages and YouTube clips in to the posters.
The feedback from my students has been great. They all enjoyed using the software and have found it really easy to use so I will definitely be using this tool again. Due to the interactivity of the posters they are more suited to formative assessment rather than summative.
