Teachers, please take a few minutes to see these slides.

Clive Hilton's curator insight, September 28, 2013 6:41 AM

Sometimes it's worth just going back to the basics. And this is one of those times. My students - yes you, Team! - take note, please.

9 apps for creating multimedia content • Inspired Magazine | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Until a few years ago designing an attractive presentation, or any other form of multimedia content, required expert designers. You first had to explain your idea to the designer who would then spend hours in isolation, using complex tools and software, to turn them into reality...

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.

Slide Effect have just released a new version of the software, and it's worth taking a look at this easy and effective presentation creator.

You build your slides by adding pictures, shapes and text, then customize background and slide transition. 3D text and special apparition effects are new features that help to make your slides really spectacular.

Free trial is available but even a paid version of $39 is not big money if you like the amazing software.

Andrew Aker's curator insight, September 5, 2013 5:53 AM

awesome teaching and learning tool!

Melanie Faizer's curator insight, March 10, 2014 9:57 PM

Zeega.com is a great example of storytelling through aggregating and curating, and in addition, embedded, automated attribution. It removes much of the burden of copyright. From a storytelling perspective, it has limitless possibilities, but one of the challenges is finding that story worth telling. Some Zeega examples are beautifully executed; too many are (from a journalistic perspective) one-dimensional in their execution and not thought-provoking. We are still new at curating content, and it shows. Curating is another form of narrating: the story still needs a point, a trajectory.

Dintinction is important when you start a new business - to distinguish your business offering as well as You as a Leader for the organization you represent.

There are some good suggestions in this.

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison

Narrated Slideshow – Screencast Tool Comparison | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

A screencast is a digital recording of a computer screen with audio narration. Screencasts can include telestrator (‘John Madden pen’) annotations. Narrated slideshows include audio recordings synchronized to images without hand-drawn annotations.

Screencasts and narrated slideshows can be created with two kinds of tools:

1. Browser-based: Create an account on the website and use a modern web browser like Google Chrome or FireFox to record, save and share it.

2. Client-based: Download and install software on a computing device to record and save.
