Bluescape
This digital version of a pin-up space is absolutely an improvement to my workflow. The input is so robust. What you do with it is where the magic happens. This program is best suited for team collaboration. It helps to discuss how/where the team will contribute information to it--whether that is discussing the templates or a plan of action. Otherwise, the workspace can tend to get messy. I like the idea of having a presentation mode, where some of the markups could be hidden. The idea of a working session with consultants or clients sounds appealing, but at the same time, there is a desire for a cleaned up, clear shareout.

Piktochart
Piktochart is great for designing infographics that require detailed information to be presented in a visually pleasing way. The fact that infographics are automatically split into segments, or 'blocks' helps with designing professional looking content quickly. There is also a wide range of templates that can be used so there's no need to start from scratch.

Cons
Bluescape
  • You can use Zoom with Bluescape but it requires solid bandwidth and memory by users.
  • A breadcrumb trail would be nice to watch students performance.
  • I would like individual user analytics for each of my students to see where they’ve been and what contributions each has made.

  • When opening a file, it would be better if it opened in a new tab

Alternatives Considered
Bluescape
We have Workware installed on different computers in our office that were supposed to be great for presentation but we had issues after a user connected their laptop then they no longer had access to our server. If they had files they needed for the presentation they had to save them to their desktop to make sure they were accessible.

Piktochart
Piktochart is cheaper than Canva, and better for building long-form infographics that require a large amount of data to be presented visually. It is also much easier to learn for new team members than Pixlr
