For today's challenge I would like to share a Web 2.0 tool called Mural.ly. Mural.ly was created originally as a space for collaborating on the design for game development. But as you begin to use it, you will find that it is a great environment to collaborate visually and present visual information in a simple way. Mural.ly provides a large workspace where you can design and create using traditional documents like Word, Excel, and Powerpoint or using media like YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook, and Twitter. In addition to a flexible workspace, you have the ability to invite collaborators to your project. A collaborative workspace allows others to add content, chat, comment, and edit the workspace.
Your Challenge: Take a few minutes to watch the videos below. The first video shows some of the possibilities for using Mural.ly and the second is a getting started video if you would like some assistance learning how to use Mural.ly. Be sure to go over to http://mural.ly today and sign up for a free account and get started. Leave a comment below with some lesson ideas or project ideas for Mural.ly. Mural.ly is a great classroom tool but can also be great for teachers and staff to use as well. What uses can you imagine?
