A solution for classrooms with diverse language backgrounds and reading abilities
Create audio-visual learning materials that are instantly accessible through an integrated reading tool. Any text description in a hotspot can be opened in Immersive Reader -- in over 60 languages.
Student-centered learning from planning to presentation
ThingLink helps students become fluent in using multiple forms of media to express themselves inside and outside the classroom. Students can:
- Save notes and observations from field trips using direct audio recording to images.
- Create interactive presentations and virtual tours collaboratively.
Capability and skills development in real-world environments
Virtual 360 degree tours give students access to real-world environments and situations that would otherwise be out of their reach. For example, students in technical and vocational colleges can be assigned interactive virtual visits to develop contextual understanding, professional vocabulary and skills in remote geographic locations, cultures, work environments, or social situations.
Support for secure user authentication and sharing to Microsoft Teams
ThingLink complies with FERPA, COPPA and GDPR, and supports Microsoft logins and Azure Tenant ID for user authentication. Content creation and sharing for image, video and 360 media is fully supported in Microsoft Teams.
