Project - Learn Glogster

#1 Glogster about you

Glogster lets you create online digital media collage and posters.

1. Review the glogs created by other students, what can you place on a glog?

3. Login   nickname asaylor password raider





Log in and click to Create a new Glog

Today experiment, create a glog about you.

Include as many things about you as you can. Use every tool, graphics, text, images, video, sound and wall(background) Glogster seems a bit slow to me so be patient. Use one browser to look for images, video etc while the other one works. YOU MUST BE DONE TODAY, TOMORROW YOU WILL CREATE ANOTHER GLOG, TODAY IS JUST TO LEARN THE SOFTWARE TOOL.



To create text, you need to click on the edit box then you will get this box with OK, you can change the color of the background, add a link, AH1-change the font or size or under FX add a shadow to your text.



See what others have done, walk around the room and look at what other students have produced. Ask questions, how did they do that?
