Teleport 360 Editor - New ThingLink App
As a ThingLink Certified Educator the announcement of the newly released Teleport 360° Editor for iPads, and soon to be released for Android tablets, was exciting news. After downloading the App on my iPad I found the start to finish process easy for all students and teachers interested in creating interactive content.
I logged into the App through my Premium ThingLink account and found my existing 360° images (MY MEDIA) was available through the App. I was also delighted to have direct access to copyright free 360° images (LIBRARY) in a photo library gallery. Uploading the media from the gallery to my media content was seamless with a one tap upload function. Adding the tags was similar to the web browser desktop version that I have used with numerous devices. Taking a 360° image and enhancing it with video, audio, images, embedded codes, or links to other 360° VR Thinglinks content has the ability to not only offer students interactive VR lessons but it brings the outside world into the classroom.
As a librarian and master collaborator, my favorite tags include links to Google Drive. It allows collaboration not only with a single teacher but across the curriculum. This application is not only a useful teaching tool but it may be used for dynamic student created projects. This is definitely a go-to tool for all students and teachers interesting in creating interactive content. For more information see ThingLink Support page.
