Glogster is a free online tool for making “interactive posters” or “glogs.” Although Glogster is being marketed primarily to elementary and high school teachers, I think it also has potential as a presentation tool in higher education. I’ve created an example of a glog using PowerPoint slides from a conference presentation that a colleague and I made a few months ago; it’s ugly, because I have no real design skills, but it will hopefully give you a sense of Glogster’s features and potential. You can see my example glog here. Another example, this one by a student, is here. To try Glogster out yourself, just go to glogster.com and set up your free account.
