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

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.

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.

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.

Trasformar euna presentazione in una storia da raccontare: lo sforzo più complesso!

Nathan Schultz's curator insight, November 25, 2015 4:22 PM

This presentations clearly explains what makes a good story - you need to devise conflict, develop characters and add efficient details.  I enjoy this presentation because it explains the details of storywriting with a variety of interesting visuals, which makes it more entertaining to read.
