Broadcast Your PowerPoint Stories To All The Devices In The Room with Electric Slide

Broadcast Your PowerPoint Stories To All The Devices In The Room with Electric Slide | Current Updates | Scoop.it

Electric Slide is the easiest way to wirelessly present PowerPoint slides, Office documents, PDFs and videos with your iPhone or iPad.

Your device is a remote control that works anywhere with any screen. Since viewers just need your simple URL to follow along, setup is a cinch.

You can also connect your device directly to a TV or projector via HDMI or VGA.

the pricing for more than one co-user I need to think about
Karen Dietz's comment, March 1, 2013 12:57 PM
I agree Jacq! For some, the pricing won't be an issue. For sole proprietors, it could be something to carefully consider.
Cori Zuppo's curator insight, May 28, 2013 10:27 PM

Absolutely cool. Now, how to make it work in a classroom with a diverse student population who perhaps cannot afford iThings...and the classroom PCs are not wireless...hmmm...

I wasn't too thrilled with the voice-over, but I can forsee utilizing this tool eventually.

Baiba, my mistake and my apologies. I mixed up one post of yours with another and got myself confused. I have deleted my comments and I apologize for any inconvenience I may have caused.

Keep up the great curation work.

Tom Kuhlman:

 

PowerPoint is hot. This makes sense because it’s the most popular elearning tool out there. It’s easy to learn. And once you understand how to use it to build rapid elearning courses, the sky’s the limit.

 

In an earlier post I listed all of the ones that dealt with PowerPoint. It’s a good one to bookmark. Because it was so popular I decided to make another post that highlights all the ones that include free PowerPoint templates or other free assets.

Linda Dougherty's curator insight, October 12, 2013 10:14 AM

Have started showing students during Google presentation tutorials how to outline their presentations like they always do with those bulleted lines on the slides.  Then take those sentences, change them into titles, and put one title on each slide. Select one image per slide. If needed, add URL links. Add the works cited for the image in tiny print at the bottom of the slide. Move those outlined bulleted points to the note section or toss into a document to print out for a group presenetation.

 

No more slides crowded with text and 4 images! No more students sleeping in the classroom while their classmates read from the Smartboard.

Susan Kay Daniels's curator insight, January 13, 2014 9:30 AM

This is a PowerPoint presentation that would have sent my former employers into shock. They had no imagination whatsoever. However, Eugene Cheng clearly has wonderful artistic skills and knows how to present them. In addition, he clearly has a nice budget to work with. These kind of beautiful graphics don't come at low price. I thoroughly enjoyed glancing through this presentation and plan to use it as inspiration for future projects.

 

Warmly,

Susan Daniels

While beautiful Powerpoint may seem like an oxymoron  this slideshow proves it is possible.

LOL Billy! In that case it becomes a story trigger -- a word or image that triggers a known story in the mind of the listener.
Karen Dietz's comment, January 4, 2013 12:19 PM
Yes, I loved that point too Outi!

Perfect Color Combination for your [Storied] PowerPoint Presentations

Perfect Color Combination for your [Storied] PowerPoint Presentations | Current Updates | Scoop.it

"These tools and generators are free tools that may help you to find the perfect color scheme and combination to use in your slides... These tools may help to choose the right background color but also the color scheme to use for text and graphics and keep a good color contrast in your slides..."

 

Many of my MBA students have a hard time choosing colors for their PowerPoint presentations -- even with the templates provided. As a result, they visually ugly. You can imagine how difficult it is then to really appreciate the stories and information you are sharing in your presentation. The rotten color combos are a huge distraction and we can't listen well.

 

So don't let this happen to you! Fellow curator Baiba Svenca @baibbb found this article and tools and I'm delighted to be able to share it with you -- and all my MBA students, too!

 

Thanks Baiba :)
