Become a Curator of Information

I have not had a lot of time to explore tonight's utility but I think Museum Box has a great deal of potential.  Think about this.  What if you could combine and leverage the power of Glogster and Prezi? Interested? I thought so!  Well that's exactly what Museum Box appears to do.  Now, in order to utilize this utility, you need to register your school in order to save your projects (hence why I haven't had enough time to explore the site properly).  Basically, you can add "text, images, video and sound to the side of the cubes".  It appears that you can build up to eight cubes per project.  That's plenty of "slides" to create a pretty impressive presentation.  The only thing I'm not sure about is if you can embed the final product.  The have a fairly impressive Teacher Resource section. I'll leave you with a fantastic example about Neil Armstrong and let you decide on Museum Box's potential for yourself. I've used Iframe code to perform the embed of the project. Click on the image of the astronaut to launch the cube.
