Instant Success and Fun with Tagexdo
Posted January 18, 2011on:
Learning from the students always adds to the pleasure of online teaching. Yesterday a student in a class I’m teaching for the Library Media Education Department at Minnesota State University-Mankato introduced us to Tagexdo. It took just seconds to create the star cloud by submitting the URL for this blog. I explored color, font, orientation, layout and shape options for another few minutes. There are options for creating your own theme, saving the image in various graphic formats and sizes. A variety of pre-set cloud shapes (including animals) and no registration required make it a fun tool to use with younger students. Students (and adults!) can create their own shapes by adding an image.
Tagexdo is currently in Beta. The developer promises a free version will continue with choices in fonts, colors and shapes.
