For all practical purposes, Capzles is a storyboard/timeline application, allowing students to tell a story, detail a person’s life, or chronicle an historical event, with pictures, audio/visual, and text. Once a “capzle” is created, a student can share his/her creation with an email link or by inviting other students or teachers to join the site. Capzles can also be posted on Facebook.
Take a look at a few Capzles to see the potential of this Web 2.0 tool. Click on one of the links below. When the “capzle” loads, click on the first picture to start the slideshow. A toolbar with left/right arrows will appear above the slideshow to move from slide to slide.
Ready to create your own Capzle? Select “Join Now, It’s Free” in the upper right hand corner. Complete the short registration. (Make sure you record your user name and password.) Once your registration is complete, select “Create” at the top, middle of the screen and begin adding photos, music, videos. Steps for creating a Capzle are located on the left side of the application interface. Users should find the application is very intuitive.
