This is an interactive learning object that has been created by teachers very easily using a free Web 2.0 tool called Magic Studio These objects can then be embedded into blogs or wikis the way that I have done above. You can also make timelines using their templates. Here’s an example:

What a wonderful tool! I think it would be great to get some of our teachers using this. One problem is that there is no way that I can find to reduce to the size of the object. They don’t fit very well in a blog post! Still, they would be brilliant on a wiki.

    Great site Suzie- I have joined and will get round to having a play. Interesting to see the only comment on my pfcblogging.blogspot.com blog from the workshop is from Derek Weymouth!
    I grabbed a lift with the dental nurse on Thurs, so don’t feel too guilty! Did you see the vibe about the bloggers cafe at ULearn?

    I did find a sizing option for the timelines, but not for the image explorers. When you have the timeline open in edit mode, look on the left for a widget titled Timeline Options. I will be publishing a new post tomorrow with screencasts on this tool. It will credit you with pointing me to this resource.
