ThingLink Demo

ThingLink is a good tool for inviting students to closely examine images of any kinds (maps, visual culture, photos of objects, even photos of documents).

    1. Start at, and create an account.
    2. Land in your own dashboard, to review what you’ve created.
    3. To start annotating, click Create +, to upload a new image.
    4. Click to add a “tag,” which serves as an annotation. You may link to other media or add text. Save each tag.
    5. You may select many areas of your images to tag. Once you’re finished, be sure to Save Image.
    6. Once created, you may embed the image or share it on social media networks. Scrolling over the image, makes the annotations appear.
