SlideTalk makes it easy to publish, edit and share PowerPoint presentations, business presentations, tutorials, eLearning material, education material and documentation of events as talking presentations, thanks to using high quality text-to-speech and image processing software to hide from you all boring details of creating a talking video, and leaving you free to focus on the creative and pedagogical tasks.

Baiba Svenca's insight:

A new service for uploading and sharing your presentations. The voiceover feature will turn your text into speech in 20 languages and 70 voices.

Mayra.Loves.Books's curator insight, January 27, 2013 1:47 PM

iVisualiser | Digital Presentations in Education |

Use iVisualiser to create a live video feed of your document or image. Annotate freely around screen with a variety of colours and line thicknesses. You can record a video of the screen as you annotate and can even record a live commentary at the same time - this will automatically save to camera roll for playback and/or review at a later point.

iVisualiser is the perfect presentation tool for both education and industry alike. Carefully designed to be incredibly simple to use, iVisualiser is a powerful app for collaboration, still-image and live video annotation and review.

Baiba Svenca's insight:

The new app by Alan Peat turns your iPad into a visualiser which lets you take a photo, zoom in/out, annotate on the screen, record screen action and live comments.Perfect for demonstration purposes in education.

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics

5 Great Online Tools for Creating Infographics | Digital Presentations in Education |

Professional infographic designers rely primarily on a core vector graphics software program to create their infographics designs. The main advantage is that all the icons, charts, images, illustrations, and data visualizations are treated as separate objects that can be easily moved, resized, overlapped, and rotated. 

Baiba Svenca's insight:

Wonderful and easy tools for creating infographics and presentations. Start using any of them for free, then go to a paid version if you wish.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 15, 12:56 AM

These tools are mostly web-based and provide ways in which students can visually represent their ideas. 

Stephan Hughes's curator insight, October 21, 9:27 AM

Getting students to create infographics and using them ourselves to present information are more than justifiable reasons for these kind of tools
