Bubbleshare - Add Audio and Video to Images

The strategic use of audio, video, images, and text, is crucial to designing learning environments in online courses. Bubbleshare is a simple to use product with cool implications for the online instructor. It allows the users to include audio and video narration to images. This is great for telling stories, critiquing photography and other forms of media, language learning, and more.

I contacted them because the audio and video is not working when I embedded it in this blog so hopefully they will be able to get it fixed. If you click on the image below, you will see what is supposed to happen.

Terence,

Our latest testing shows that the Audio/Video recording/playback is working. Please try again, and let us know if it works.

Terence and Mazdak,

Nice find on the BubbleShare. I have the same problem unfortunately with the audio not playing when I embed it in my blogger (http://bchilds.blogspot.com). Also, when I tried to embed the code Bubbleshare gave me, it seemed to be missing the html /embed tag at the end, so I had to manually enter it.

Overall though, I think it's a pretty cool product that will make photo sharing better and easier.

This is a totally cool tool! But the embed issues seem to be a real stickler. When I visited today, it appears one still must click thru your image to the bubbleshare site to see it in action.

I also am generally frustrated by the fact that web2.0 visual media tools are not designed for collaborative content building. ("remix" is NOT the same). My kingdom for a free wiki whitebaord! Any body have any leads?
