What’s It Like? ThingLink is a tool — available on the Web as well as iOS and Android — for embedding multimedia content in images or videos. The media-embedding process, for both teachers and students, simply involves uploading an image or video and linking it to other resources on the Web. Links can lead users to informational Web pages, audio recordings, and videos. Prompts guide users most of the way, and a Search Content option helps support the embedding process with links to commonly used Web resources.

Rating: 4/5

Price: Free/paid

Grades: 6-12

Pros: ThingLink is a fun and secure way for students to share their learning; uses some of the best aspects of social media.

Cons: An excellent jumping-off point with deeper learning dependent on how it is used; time is needed to access its full potential.

Bottom line: It’s unlike anything else out there, helping students and teachers produce interactive multimedia presentations embedded in images and videos.
