Online Pop-up Books

I have been doing some work with students using a great new tool I found called Zooburst. It allows you to build 3D pop-up books from your own photos or pictures. You can add sound or make characters talk in voice bubbles. It is really easy to use and you can sign up for free. Some of the features, such as adding sound, require you to sign up for the premium membership but it is pretty cheap--$50 USD for a year-long membership that gives you 250 login names for your students. And you can register each of those 250 logins without email addresses. This is pretty handy if you want to set up a whole class of young ones that don't have their own email addresses.  And if you don't renew after a year, you can still access those books you made.  You just won't be able to edit them anymore until you renew your membership.  If you don't want just anybody to be able to see your book, you can protect it with a password.  The password for this book is: test.  (There isn't much to it yet, but you will get the idea.)
