- Collaborate on boards making it easier to collect reference images in a group.
Sam Wright, Blended Learning Facilitator
Pinterest is an amazing tool to have as a student, using its similar images system it allows me to create mood boards of anything I want in minutes without spending ages looking for the perfect set of pictures. Having the ability to create multiple boards also works perfectly with having several assignments on the go at one time, I’m able to create an inspiration board for one assignment while working on a revision board for another. Overall, Pinterest makes assignments a lot more fun and easy to work on without getting in the way of the primary task.
Charlie Lecuyer, Learning Technologist Apprentice
Pinterest helped me as a Games student as it allowed me to get all of my ideas for my concept art (characters, environments, vehicles, items and weapons) in one place but with five different moodboards. It helped me as I was able to view images from all across the world and pin them to my moodboards and I was then able to use them within my assignment as criteria.
