Using ThingLink in Canvas

ThingLink is an online platform that is used for making interactive images and videos. The free account enables users to annotate images and video which is imported via URL, such as YouTube. The paid account enables users to annotate uploaded video, 360deg images and video.
ThingLink images and video can be used to  guide learning by creating multiple ‘hot spots’ to annotate images with text, pictures, video, audio and hyperlinks to web content. Teaching staff and students can create, collaborate and communicate and engage in critical thinking and problem solving.
