Learning objects Open Explorer Builder

TLF ID L11611

Use Open Explorer Builder to create an interactive multimedia project, presentation or unit of work. Build alone or with others. Select an image to represent your topic or area of study, then add points of interest to it and attach appropriate content to each of these points. You can import images, audio or Flash Video files, and link to websites. Add your own captions and text. You can then create a tour of your content, using different text and audio. When you've finished 'building', publish your work as an Open Explorer. Users of your Open Explorer can take the guided tour and then explore the content as they wish.
