Research findings

"ThingLink is relatively simple for students to master and is a highly effective tool that can be used to enhance and assess students' ability…and to engage students in the course material."

From: Fostering Student Engagement with Digital Microscopic Images Using ThingLink, an image Annotation Programme by Pierette Apasamy Journal of College Science Teaching Vol 47May/June 2018

"Overall, one of the greatest strengths of the Thinglink platform is its simplicity and user-friendliness, allowing users to easily create and disseminate immersive, interactive learning materials with very little training time. This permits the creation of bespoke digital learning resources that adhere to modern principles of curriculum design and, on an institutional level, educational vision and strategy".

From ThingLink and the Laboratory: Interactive Simulations of Analytical Instrumentation for HE Science Curricula, Adam J. Jeffery et al, Journal of Chemical Education issue 14, June 2022

"Students felt more engaged with the histology concepts while they were creating their ThingLink workshop…student responses suggested a much deeper level of interaction with the material, and this may result in a greater retention and augmented understanding
