EMT Instructor - outside of the box thinking!

Overall experience is positive. Students can engage 24/7, inside and outside of the classroom and it's so much better than just flat pictures!

Pros

First, I got a special pricing because I was signed up for the email list and it helped save me quite a few dollars as my department wasn't ready to purchase a larger institutional package, so that was a nice factor for me as it was out of pocket. What I enjoy most about thinglink is that while all students prefer visuals, for my particular curriculum, Emergency Medical Technicians, they are VERY visual and hands-on. For them, flat pictures don't always get across what we need them to know. So being able to have interactive images, 3d images and all in one photos that we can put videos in, links to other places we want them to go, etc is super convenient and useful. In my field, a lot of instructors always complain about how the students aren't engaged...well yeah, if you do "death by powerpoint" no wonder! While this program does have a bit of a learning curve (mild to moderate depending on your tech level), it's a way to help mitigate that complaint. It's accessible outside of class and you don't need to always be the "sage on the stage" - students can see these 24/7 whether we're there or not.

Cons

I would say that my con isn't so much about the software itself, but rather trying to convince my department on getting outside of the box and learning it on their own or as a team. I have quite a few people in my department who look at me like I'm some tech guru and while they think things are cool (including thinglink), to actually take the time to learn it on their own - the motivation just isn't there. So anything "techy" is thrown my way or begrudgingly learned. That being said - what I would love is obviously highly specific to my field but in the premade 3d options, I would like more EMS friendly scenes, such as streets, interiors of homes, inside of hospitals, etc but I completely get that isn't exactly as exciting as Egypt or Denali state park! So I have a bit of work to do on my end in order to put that into my own workspace. But otherwise, I'm satisfied with the program for what I need it to be at the moment.

Interactivity for Collaboration

So far the experience has been good. The support response and reaction were a bit slow and they didn't quite understand what I was looking for and anticipate my next question but they were reactive.

Pros

ThingLink is very easy to use and deploy. It's also very easy to teach others how to use this software. I like that they're are a lot of different options to choose from when designing learning experiences.

Cons

There are a few features that could be improved. I wasn't told at the time that there was a huge bug/issue with the e-learning modules and I had to rethink how I was going to deliver a specific course. That was a challenge. I'd love the ability to import PowerPoints directly and animate them as well.

Reasons for Choosing ThingLink

It was a bit less expensive and I felt that the features would help me to achieve a more thorough product learning experience for our use case.

Presentation Organizer

Super easy for the youngest minds to use and interact with technology for classroom projects. I enjoyed the versatility of it and ease of use. Assign and go for students.

Pros

I enjoyed students being able to connect websites and other information to create a interactive infographic for their presentations. The new 3D features are an added bonus for the coming year.

Cons

Adding emoticons and some other features with text might be helpful with the trends.

Reasons for Choosing ThingLink

Cost and ease of assigning to students and having access myself with their work.

Super fun and efficient!

It has been so helpful for teaching virtual students. It transports them into a virtual world where they can hear me teach, see what I am referring to, and have deeper understanding.

Pros

I can use this software to help students understand the music they are playing, the instruments they are learning, or emphasize notes in my presentations to other classes. This has been revolutionary in a year where students often have to go virtual for short periods of time.

Cons

I would like to see more options for my field for 360 designs.

Reasons for Switching to ThingLink

This program was shown to me in a professional development course. I knew it would be more beneficial and found it easier to navigate.
