This is a new tool that I am testing out on the blog. It is called Apture. To try this out, I will make a post about Japan. So what I did was link different things to the words. For example, to the word Apture, I linked a definition. To the word Japan, I linked a video and a map. Please comment and let me know how this works! Comments can lead to extra credit!
