In Judith Parker’s Psycholinguistics course students have been asked to create scientific posters, but they were encouraged to explore new ways of presenting their work online. Justin Toney created his science poster for the class with Glogster, an online poster tool that enables linking, embedding, media, as well as re-posting it on other sites, such as a UMW Blog. I think he used Glogster to some great effect—don’t you? I really dig the design and aesthetics of his work. Imagine that, a web-based science poster that isn’t a progeny of PowerPoint and actually has some character and sass! You can see the full screen version of Justin’s work here.
To explore more tools like Glogster take a look at Alan Levin’s incredible resource “50 Ways to Tell a Digital Story.”
