One of the best features of ThingLink EDU Premium is the ability to create and use custom icons to tell deeper stories.
For educators, custom icons are truly useful for providing students with differentiated resources. They help students tackle a learning task through the use of these attention grabbing visual cues. Let’s learn how to create custom icons.
Start with a Base Image
Every custom icon starts with a base image. You can create a base image from scratch or you can use an existing image as an icon. Since icons are very small, it’s best to stick with simple icons.
You can adjust the size of your icon, change the file type, and create hover effects with the help of Photo Editing tools.
- Recommended size, 36 x 36 pixels
- Maximum size, 140 x 64 pixels
- Any shape
- A second image with inverted colors to achieve a hover effect, optional
- Images must be saved as .png files
