Thinglink

I've been hearing a lot about a tool called Thinglink.  This tool can make any image that you put on your website or blog interactive, so that a person who is looking at your image can hover over small dots  and get information about things on your image. 


Here is a video that shows Thinglink in action:

Have you used Thinglink? I first heard about it on the Free Technology 4 Teachers blog. I have not tried it out, but tried Stained Glass, which was featured in the original post in Free Technology ... site. I am wondering how useful others have found Thinglink.

Hi Judy,
I haven't used Thinglink yet, but I find the idea of an interactive image with audio or text very exciting. I know I will use this tool sometime soon.
