Zeega is a unique online platform for creating fun visual mashups out of things you find on the internet. Zeega places a great deal of emphasis on visual pizzazz, music, discovery, and fun and it’s authoring environment is very easy to use. Zeega is a great tool for exploration. For a lot of the other projects and tools we look at in the educast series, we like to plan out, organize and have very specific goals about what we are making. But for Zeega, I think it’s really best to go in with a simple concept or interest, and use the tool itself to see where you go and be spontaneous with what you’re making. Not all online visual authoring tools offer this kind of flexibility, which is why it can be really worthwhile to give Zeega a try.

This video overviews how to create a Zeega on their website.
