One of the benefits of building a flexible digital toolkit is the ability to weave tools together to fit your teaching and learning needs. If you’re looking for a simple tool to serve as a container for one or more ThingLinks, try Tackk.
Tackk is a blank canvas that allows anyone to easily publish multimedia web content on a simple page. Tackk supports live, interactive ThingLink images, which are embedded into Tackk simply by copying and pasting the share url. A big bonus is the text editing feature in Tackk, which provides users with a handy way to label a ThingLink.
