A blog? A website? No, it’s Populr, a new collaborative-learning tool

collaborative learningWe’re always looking for new ways to enhance our students’ collaborative learning experience, so we were excited to come across Populr, a new micro-publishing service. What’s that? It’s not really a social-media site. And unlike blogs (intended for a steady stream of information) and websites (tedious to set up and maintain), Populr allows you to build “POPs,” mini, one-page “websites” that:

  • Don’t require upkeep
  • Are highly targeted to the viewer
  • Allows users to create and share sophisticated, but easy-to-set-up messages (that include images, video and sound files)

 When your students collaborate on a project, they often exchange ideas through email, text message or face-to-face during class. All this certainly works, but Populr gives your students the ability to upload videos, PDFs, photos, and customize the layout in the same amount of time it would take to draft an email. And all your students have to do is drag and drop. To learn more about Populr, check out this video:
