Web 2.0 Tools Review: Glogster
Glogster is an interactive online multimedia poster which can be embedded into a webpage or blog. It allows you to incorporate a mixture of images, text, graphics, music and video all in one. It also provides access to 10,000 original graphic elements such as backgrounds, text boxes, frames and more. Media can be imported from around the web via URL or uploaded from users’ own files.
Another feature of Glogster is the Glogpedia. The Glogopedia library is a constantly-growing collection of over 21,000 top-quality glogs, hand-picked based for accuracy and presentation, and categorized by 80 subjects under 9 disciplines according to the K-12 currciculum. Glogster users can nominate glogs to be considered for inclusion in the library by clicking a button at the top of any public glog.
