Looks like a great tool - I hope there is an Android version of it. 

StudentSupport@EdinburghCollege's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM

Studying is not the intended function of this application, however, by uploading lecture slides as images, or taking pictures of the board during class, then uploading these images to Pixntell, would allow you to create your very own custom Flashcards. By recording your own audio notes to accompany the images, you could create short movies that could act as bitesize recap tools to support your revision, or prompts for studying, or a visual plan for your coursework.

Un servizio gratuito che consente di realizzare in modo molto semplice una presentazione costituita da immagini e registrazione vocale a commento delle immagini. Si tratta di un webware semplice da utilizzare in ambito didattico e che può essere utilizzato dal docente e/o dagli studenti per creare storie (storytelling) o presentazioni

Laura Conley's curator insight, February 18, 2013 9:20 AM

This is great!

Alex Alves De Paula's curator insight, November 18, 2014 7:35 PM

Narrable enables users to create short narrated slideshows. Start by uploading the pictures that you want to talk about. You can then record a narration for each picture via your computer's microphone or by uploading an audio recording that is stored on your computer. Narrable projects can be shared via email, Facebook, or by embedding them into a blog or wiki.

Linda, it's only for Windows, no version for Mac.

Okay, thanks, Baiba. That solves the mystery of why I couldn't get it to work. Too bad!

Free photo-editing tools | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

When you want to insert a photo into PowerPoint, you should think about how you can edit that photo to improve it.

 

For example, you might want to:

Crop it

Change its brightness or contrast

Recolor it

Remove its background

Give it a border, shadow, or reflection...
