What is Glogster?

Glogster is a Web 2.0 tool which allows you to "poster yourself". All you need to do is create a free login and click on Create a Glog. Your poster or Glog can contain text, images, audio, and video. Everything that you place on our poster can have a link to a Web page. The tools are simple to use. There is a commercial version of Glogster. However, since the general public uses that site, you may encounter some unsavory Glogs there. Teachers should create educational Glogster accounts at: http://edu.glogster.com. This is a site that is dedicated for the sole use of educators and students. Teachers can create class accounts which allow their students to create Glogs, too. For more information or for help in using the educational version of Glogster, go to: http://edu.glogster.com/faq/.

A Sample Glog

Above is an example of a Glog that Jane Cook created to serve as the homepage of the Stafford Web 2.0 Wiki. Notice that as you hover your mouse over each box on the poster, a red circle appears which means that there is a hyperlink. For this Glog, when you click on the text or image, you will launch a new page on the Stafford Public Schools private Wiki in an external window. Since this is a private Wiki, you will not be able to see the content. However, this demonstrates that you can embed links to any Web page in a Glog.
