How I Use It
I used this tool in the classroom for years and initially loved it. I teach educational technology to preservice teachers at a local college. Although the tool is not totally intuitive, once I show students a few things they can quickly pick it up and create high quality multimedia projects.
My Take
The embedd video tool no longer works. Glogster support directed me to use links to external videos instead but it does not create the same effect. I might as well use a free tool if the video no longer works as expected. I have decided that I will no longer use this tool after this year's project is done. This bug has been a problem for at least a year now.
