Adam - Create Awesome Embedded Multimedia for your Webpage

      I get asked a lot about adding links to an area of a graphic or even adding a Youtube Video to a area of a graphic!  Imagine the possibilities with creating a problem for your classes and, when students scroll  over a section of the graphic, a pop-up shows with a video to support the content. Or, how about a picture of all your teachers with a roll over that pops out a welcome video from that teacher?  Previously, creating something like this took a special program and a knowledge of how to create hotspots and other technical experience that many don't have or don't have the time to acquire.  
      Well, now, there is a program called Adam that does it for you!  It's easy and there is a short video on their site that you can view to learn how to produce an interactive graphic!
      But, I suggest starting by looking at a finished product which is a demo that they have available for preview.  When you see it, you may think you won't be able to recreate something like that for your classroom but the video shows just how easy this is! :)
      Checkout the demo at House Plans Demo.
      Adam brings life to your dusty old static documents. With a flick of your wrist and a click of a button, you can add videos, HTML, stylized text and more to a static PDF or image file. In less than 20 minutes, you can have a dynamic web page to showcase your products, services and multimedia content. It's uber simple, from print to web in four ridiculously easy steps.
      •   Upload a PDF or Image file
      •  Add Hotspots to your Document
      •   Insert content into the Hotspot (video, text, music, HTML)
      •   Put the link code on your website.
      SHAZAM! In a matter of moments, you've taken that boring non-interactive document and turned it into a valuable sales and marketing tool for your organization. Neat huh? Watch Adam work his mojo and see for yourself.
