Yeah, forum integration would help a great deal. When brainstorming the ultimate tool with a few people at FIT, here are the basics of what we came up with:

  • Users could draw annotation areas with rollovers, as Flickr allows.
  • Clicking on the annotation box takes you to a separate web page with a blow-up of the box and a discussion thread.
  • The blow-up page would also have trackback functionality so that students who have their own blogs could comment on the image, store that comment on their blog (which also functions as a simple portfolio), and still share their comment with the class.
  • Page layout would be set up so that students could keep the image on screen while scrolling through the commentary text.
