Ask Mrs. Fullem and she will create a workspace for your project

This is a great tool if you are already using pbworks for collaborating with your group on your project because a lot of your information will already be on the wiki.  Use a wiki the way you would any other presentation slide creator (PowerPoint, Showbeyond, etc.) but instead of placing your information on slides you will be placing it on the wiki.  You can upload images and sometimes video, or use the Insert feature to embed the video in your wiki.  You can add multiple pages and link to those pages to navigate through your wiki presentation.

Final Product:  Presentation, wiki, website

In Vuvox you create a scrolling collage, where you can add frames to pictures or video, insert text, links, little popups when your mouse scrolls over an icon.  They provide you with a number of images to make your collage look more...interesting.  It offers an editing tool to cut out certain areas of an image so that image could act as a frame for a photo or text.
