Glogs – create interactive and rich media web pages quickly and easily!

Blogs are great. But sometimes you just want students to use something that is intuitive, easy-to-use and looks great. Enter glogs!

Fortunately, Glogster, the place to go if you want to create a glog, has an education version. This means that you can set up glogs on your students’ behalf if you wish – although they can set up their own. Using Glogster is very straightforward and produces fantastic results you can either leave online or print out.

Here’s how to get started:

  1. Hi, I am a Norwegian teacher, and I've been following your blog for a while. It is very interesting, thanks a lot for inspiration and input. I really like the Glogs, but there is one thing I don't quite get: How exactly do I transfer the student account to my students? Is it enough to send them the link and the corresponding password? Obviously they don't want my name on it, so I guess they just have to change the account info after they've logged in. Am I right?

  2. Hi Ingunn, thanks for the kind words. I've only used glogs with my Year 10 students (15/16 year-olds). As they're old enough to have their own accounts, I haven't actually used Glogster whereby you create accounts for the students.

    I should imagine what you suggest is correct, however. :-)
