Slides from Russell Stannard's presentation at the e-assessment conference in Dundee 2012. A lecturer in TESOL at Warwick University, he runs a video tutorial website demonstrating digital tools for (language) teachers. This talk provides the background to his work on teacher feedback using screencasting software ( Camtasia & Jing).

"SlidePresenter is an online presentation service. It has a free account that is full-featured and the service allows you to create videos that are synced with PowerPoint presentations. It is similar to Knovio.
SlidePresenter can be used to create presentations for use by educators in the classroom that can then be reviewed by students at a later date for review or reinforcement or to create training sessions that people can view on their own time. Students can also use it for class projects.
The free account limits videos to 15 min (similar to most of these services) but that is a good way to make sure your presentation is focused and concise. Each presentation can be tagged, embedded in other sites, and easily shared via social media."

From Prezi to Google Docs to PowerPoint, there's no shortage of ways for teachers to put together a dynamic presentation. But Klowd wanted to take a different approach to help improve the presentation experience for both the person at the front of the classroom and in the back row.

"PDF Presenter is a free PDF presentation software to display your PDF documents through an external projector."
This is handy if you want to show slides in PDF format. There are also whiteboard tools allowing you to annotate with a mouse or pen (if you're using interactive technology: IWB, IVP etc).

Popplet is an interesting tool to organize our ideas, resources, images, etc.. as a graph. It has multiple functions and we can build virtual walls, concept mapping, resource collection, timelines, and so, resulting in a visually clear and attractive interface. It is quite intuitive and has the advantage of being a tool well suited for collaborative work with students as it offers the possibility to include different users.
