What is Glogster





Glogster is online "poster" creating site that is flash based. These posters can be used as part of lessons, can be student centered, and embedded into classroom wikis to increase their aesthetic appeal. Additionally, Glogster is full of "click and use" graphics, animations, and support for preloaded video and pictures as well as pictures and video on the fly.

Reason for Use

It is amazing how simple it is to turn a bland and boring wiki into an eye catching site without any knowledge of html or other various web design language.

Ease of Use

While there is a slight learning curve to learn how to place objects and embed a Glogster into various sites, even the least experienced user will find they are able to catch on in a short period of time.
