VISUAL.LY

PREZI - it's as cool/good/interesting as you make it (Also, you have to create an account to use it.)

Students can also post videos, links, or other multimedia to one "wall" for a digital "gallery." Many possibilities for use!

GLOGSTER.COM  (TEACHERS must create a class account to use this one.) Glogster is a digital poster, but instead of crummy glue and scissors thing, you can digitally “paste” your own pictures, video or audio and add links. You can bring in images from Google, videos from YouTube and files from your Google drive. Plus, there are a lot of cool design features to make it much prettier than any handmade non-digital poster.
