Thinglink Thoughts

Thinglink helped me land a job. I teach courses in multimedia journalism at the university level. Recently, I interviewed for a job and discussed my professional work and the tools and software I use. I used a Thinkglink example. It is always interesting to see someone's facial reaction when they learn of the product for the first time. For example - What is this? Wow! Where did you get this? How do you use it? Wow!

Pros

Thinglink, to me, is an immersive software that enhances teaching and the relaying of information.

Cons

I don't see a downside as I have been with the software for quite some time and.

I work a long time with ThingLink and have made some international project based on ThingLink but even in my daily classroom I let it use my students to work with in projects and summaries of work flows.

Pros

I like that students can use this product very easy and in a way that they can be proud of theirs work. It looks professional and give my students the one of the best software for to show what they learned and how they think. From the beginning through a own drawn/taken picture to the end when they can show their progress in the project.

Cons

The enrolment is quiet technical and gives my colleagues a huge step to overcome before they want really to use it in their classrooms.

Thinglink: Making learning in the classroom meaningful, relevant, and exciting!

Being a creative teacher, I love offering this program to my students, however the price gets costly every year. I still continue to use it because of how excited my student get to share new learning.

Pros

What I love about Thinkglink is that it can be used as an educational platform that makes learning exciting for students. Instead of writing a book report on the Revolutionary War, students can use their research to create a dynamic visual and share their expertise with the class. This interactive platform allows students to be creative and explorative.

Cons

I love this platform, however I would love that the platform allow students to draw picture and create diagrams. For instance students could teach a math or science topic to the class. As students use their presentation skills to share their ideas, the program can switch to other images or picture with the tabs that pertain to each.

I have been using thinglink for many years and I find it a fundamental ally for my lessons and the training courses I organize.

Pros

Thinglink is a very versatile tool that allows you to create many types of projects based on your skills. It lends itself to simple and fast work, but also to structure very complex and rich paths.

Cons

I think the integration with other tools could still be integrated as already done with Canva. In addition, basic models could be structured to be reused for new users.

Overall, ThingLink has been an answer to many of my questions as a teacher. It allows me to engage students in a creative and innovative way! Thanks!

Pros

ThingLink is a very user friendly program. I am a US History teacher, images are extremely important in understanding what has happened in our country. ThingLink allows me to have students directly interact with images from history by identifying them and making connections between them. I also like the fact that ThingLink allows me to purchase just the amount of subscriptions that I need for my students...it's not a one-size fits all program. Tech support has been awesome although I rarely have to use it. Keep up the great work!

Cons

So far...nothing! Uploading music could be easier but that's just an issue of getting the actual music to upload.

I really like ThingLink. I love the capabilities of the content and the opportunity to change the way workforce education happens with this software. I'm excited to work with it even more.

Pros

This software is intuitive, easy to use and easy to deploy. I LOVE that the possibilities for content creation are endless.

Cons

I'd love to see more icon options, but with the option to design and upload your own, I don't really see the need. I've been working on the development side and have yet to roll out a finished product, but thus far, even sharing my work has been super simple.

Pros

I love that you can create a tour for your participants to use as self-guided learning. It is interactive, and the features you have available make it easy for the end user.

Cons

I would like to see the possibility of in application browsing- My participants had to leave the browser of the ThingLink to view the hyperlinks and some were confused on how to get back. There are several steps that can get overwhelming to less tech-savvy participants.

I love how Thinglink continues to update and add features that both students and teachers will find useful! We LOVE the 360 and VR capabilities! I worked with an 8th grade ELA team recently and they took their students on a 360 experience of the Holocaust to support their reading in class.

Pros

As a K-12 Instructional Technologist, I love finding open-ended tools that can be versatile for teachers. In K-8 we use iPads and 9-12 we use Chromebooks. I love that Thinglink is a creative tool that can be accessed on both devices and can be used to create in any content area.

Cons

I have not come across any cons when using Thinglink with teachers and students. I have used the premium version in the past, but currently I use the free version.

Engaging feature for our users

Reviewed on 12/08/2021

Pros

I love the 360-degree imagery software that ThingLink offers, which makes it easy for content creators to put hot spots of information and link back to our content. And the inclusion of Microsoft's Immersive Reader is absolutely key to this feature for our users - they love that aspect of it as well.

Cons

It does take a lot of thoughtful work to put in the hot spots with the information, but that is mostly on our end. The finished product is worth it.

Cons

our overall experience is correct, a bit slow customer service, app needs some improvements and updates.

Pros

The idea, when it was introduced several years ago, was magic...simple to use and with the benefits of introducing a lot of information without damaging the visual. we did ask a lot of our clients if they would like to use it.

Cons

Somehow it did not show its full potential in everyday use, we use it for one client for their website, but apart from that, it will be nice to use it on banners, Facebook cover, or posts (like it was before). it needs to be aplicable everywhere.

As a new teacher and in the middle of a pandemic, my school decided to online last year and I was seeking for new cool online resources that I can implement in my classroom. I used Thinglink for the free trial and I loved it. More importantly my students really enjoyed it and thought it was a cool way for them to express their learning. They really enjoyed how much creativity they have and they can relate. This source is a great 21th century resources to implement in your classroom. The kids will love it and so will you! Your lectures become more alive and entertaining to your students.

Pros

I like the horizon of freedom this software brings to be creative. I used it to give lectures and my students love it.

Cons

Its a bit time consuming to maneuver how to use it. However, if you dedicate yourself its easy.

Pros

We used this software to create some pretty good virtual tours highlighting Gentrification in Different American Cities. Software Worked out pretty well and was really easy to learn and pick up. Learning curve is very low and you can create some crisp looking tours with media very quickly.

Cons

Software is not very customizable. Export capabilities are extremely limited as well as a format of digital assets put into Virtual tours. Simplicity makes learning curve low but also limits what you can do with the software beyond very basic tours.
