During #edcampomaha I learned about Capzles. It is a fabulous web 2.0 tool for the classroom. It can be a great alternative to traditional presentations. You can upload all sorts of content including documents, text, video, and even your PowerPoint presentation as well! You can also write blog posts directly into the presentation.
Once you have all your content loaded, you will have a linear gallery similar to a slideshow or timeline.
In Capzles, every piece of content is called a “moment”. Let’s say you have several images that are closely related. You can “stack” them into one “moment”. When you are presenting, each moment will appear as a thumbnail image. Click it to enlarge.
Here is a very basic example of a Capzle I created very quickly.
Give Capzles a try! Build some lessons and presentations and your students will love it!
