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 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

Immersive Presentations: Get Your Live Video Inside Your Slides with Personify Live

Immersive Presentations: Get Your Live Video Inside Your Slides with Personify Live | Digital and Graphic Design Tips, Tools and Tricks in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Personify Live is a new type of Windows app which allows you to integrate in your live webcast, online event or webconference your real-time video image overlayed on the slide content you are showcasing.

 

To achieve this result, Personify Live extends the capabilities of your favorite web conferencing solution (GoToMeeting, GoTowebinar, WebEx, Adobe Connect, Skype, Lync, etc.) "by extracting you from your surroundings and placing you within the presentation".

 

"The technology creates a virtual green screen feel for the presenter, for a communication experience that attempts to come as close to being physically present in front of the audience as possible.

 

[Personify Live] extracts live video of the presenter to then superimpose it onto the desktop to create a layer on top of a presentation.

 

There’s also a complementary iPhone or Android app that acts as a remote control, letting presenters mute the video feed of themselves with a click of a button, and interact with the content to emphasize and engage their audience.

 

Source: http://betakit.com/2012/11/12/personify-pairs-kinects-camera-with-videoconferencing-tools-to-amp-up-presentations

 

There are three ways in which Personify Live can be used:

 

a) As an extension to your existing web conferencing and presentation tools.

 

b) As a cloud-based production platform that can output a downloadable .MP4 video

 

c) As a live screencasting app by itself which can integrate with your presentation tools.

 

Pricing starts at $19.99/mo or at $199 for an annual subscription (which includes an Asus Xtion Pro Live Depth Camera and three months free).

 

P.S.: For Windows 7 / Vista only. (Mac version coming in 2013)
