Qwiki

What is Qwiki? Well my favourite web 2.0 resource at the moment. It is a multimedia search engine but with a difference, in the fact that the results it returns are presented  in an interactive, engaging way rather than merely textually.
I have been using Qwiki as a tool to introduce topic areas by embedding them into our Colleges VLe (Moodle), with a very positive response from the students.

Qwiki gets it information from Wikipedia and YouTube and “intelligently” splices together a visual presentation with sub-titles and options to improve content and best of all the ability to embed them into websites and Moodle.
