TripLine is Web 2.0 tool that allows you to use Google Maps, routes, points of interest, text, & pictures, then turns all those things into a nice guided tour video. It is very similar to My Maps (built in to Google Maps) but the video-like interface keeps your students on track and engaged. Add images, text, and commentaries.
