The idea for this SPLOT came from TRU Open Learning instructional designers Kelly Warnock and Melissa Jakubec. They were planning a workshop on searching for image media and asked if a SPLOT could be built that would create a place where people could add found images, and that could be done without asking them to create accounts.
Thus was born the TRU Collector. Visitors to the site can upload any image, and provide a name for credit, select categories to organize them, add tags, and provide information to credit the source of the found images.
In addition, the site supports uploads of animated GIFs; animation is preserved for images smaller than 600px in width.
Such a collection could be created for a department or a single class where it might be useful to create a sharable set of images.
Share something with the TRU Collector (the access code is “tru collector”).
