Visual Thesaurus

Scholars:

Now that school’s in full swing, don’t forget we subscribe to the Visual Thesaurus: www.visualthesaurus.com

If you haven’t seen Visual Thesaurus it’s amazing and hard to describe. You must not miss it. It is visual! Click on this example see words similar to the word commitment. (Be patient. It takes a little time to move from the opening page into the custom word page. Home users must login with the id/password for VT listed in the Library Moodle site.)

This PowerPoint Slide-Show will introduce you to the finer points of Visual Thesaurus.

Teachers:
