The one place to organize, present and share knowledge
John Dalziel's insight:

Edcanvas is a website that allows practitioners to collate online resources onto a single page for their learners to access.

These canvases can be shared with learners...

- via a URL link or

- by embedding into a blog/VLE/other webpresences.
A canvas creation is quite straight forward.

Down one side of the page is a search column that lets users search YouTube and Flickr as well as add resources from Google Drive and Dropbox and upload directly.

Those resources can then be dragged onto the canvas.
It’s another way of providing learner access to a number of different resources via a one stop shop, rather than having to share lots of different URL’s.
Learners could also use Edcanvas to collate their own canvases as they do research on given topics.

Creative Commons licensing makes many photographs available for re-use that learners and practitioners otherwise could not use.


However for many of us, citing Creative Commons licensed works can sometimes be a confusing, multistep process.


ImageCodr aims to make that process easier by generating properly formatted Creative Commons attributions for images that users find on Flickr.


Once an image has been found on Flickr...
- paste its URL into the ImageCodr code generator
- a properly formatted image code with Creative Commons attribution is produced.


- is a good tool for learners to use when they're adding images to any web presence. I
- gives learners all of the code and attributions necessary for using a Creative Commons image found on Flickr in their web posts.
