Educational Use of Tactilize
Tactilize is a multimedia publishing tool: it enables you to easily create and share your educational content directly from an iPad or from any web-browser.
The content is created on “Cards”; one screen-size canvas that can be edited with rich content such as images, videos, text and internet links.
The intuitive and user-friendly interface enables to easily design, move and re-size the content to render a professional-looking interactive experience.
Thousands of teachers worldwide are already creating their own custom iPad courses and enabling their students to create their educational materials themselves.
This process, allowing learners to design their materials, enables them to benefit of an effective active learning.
In the Silicon Valley, communities of teachers are using it on a regular basis and making conferences to exchange about the high potential of Tactilize for educational practice.
Teachers finds a great value in using Wikipedia, Google image and all information sources at their disposal with their students, who then create rich visual synthesis of their research on screen-size “Cards”.
Covering everything from literary to scientific subjects; classes are now offered a rich, engaging and immersive learning experience. Creating interactive content for playful learning as never been so easy!

Could be a great app!
I love this app but at this point can only give it 3 stars. What I love most about this app is that it brings out the little talent that I have. I finally have something I can do with my pictures and thoughts.
The app has some slight stability issues, crashing a few times since I downloaded the app. Creating a card can be difficult at times with the ipad. I am finding it difficult to manipulate the text the way I want to. Paragraphs are not centered in the text box after relocating the box. It would also be nice to lock a photo or text box in place so that you don't accidentally move it while editing.
Overall, great app and I am looking forward to future updates for this app... I will return at that point to give the app the 5 stars it earns.
Brilliant app. I do, however, wish that I could save the design to my iPad, without having to publish it, in case I wanted to make some changes later. Unless I have just not seen this option, which, in that case, I apologise for.
This app is packed with great material. It really illustrates how small our world has become, yet, how large it still is. It is one of my favorite apps.
