ThingLink (thinglink.com) makes it easy to make online images and videos interactive with notes and links. Let's say you are looking at a picture of the first moon landing. When you move your mouse over the image, you will notice it has come alive with little pieces of additional information. On the image you can now see a video clip of Neil Armstrong taking the first steps on the moon, and an original audio recording of the landing countdown.
Thousands of educators use ThingLink every day to turn images and videos into fun learning experiences. In this campaign we are raising money to collect the amazing creative work of our users into a free library of interactive books, presentations, and videos across all subjects and grade levels. Supporters of this campaign can subscribe to a curated monthly edition of interactive books and videos that support learning across all grade levels.
What we will do to achieve our goal:
1. Curate and distribute a monthly series of interactive books and videos that support learning across all subjects and grade levels.
2. Partner with educational publishers, image, and video archives for creating a high-quality, mobile-friendly media library for teachers, students, and parents.
3. Build a subject and grade level specific content search on ThingLink.
