Lovely Bubbly…

March 2, 2006


Very excited to share BubbleShare with you. This Ajax based app allows you to upload photos, create albums, add audio, create slideshows that you can post to your blog, create a photocast and lots, lots more. The look and feel of BubbleShare is top notch – it’s fast and very slick. It has the coolest zoom tool ‘thing’ too – you’d be mad not to take a look at this.

If you’ve used this in a lesson, please share your ideas with us!

In the bbc’s own words:

Radio 1 Superstar VJs is part of a new kind of service the BBC is piloting, which is not just about enjoying its content but using it to create your own. On this site you’ll find nearly 100 clips to download, watch, mix and share under the Creative Archive Licence, all chosen with VJ’s in mind and including skylines, sunsets, seascapes, wildlife, time-lapse photography and retro gadgets. We will be adding more clips and programmes soon and have just launched the Open News Archive offering around 80 iconic reports for download.
