LiveWeb - insert and update web pages real-time in PowerPoint

LiveWeb - insert and update web pages real-time in PowerPoint | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

LiveWeb is a plugin that allows users, practitioners and/or learners, to insert a live website into their presentation.
They could, for example, insert a Twitter feed to get live responses or take questions from a large group.

e.g. A voting website like StrawPoll.me (https://strawpoll.me/), could be added, to get immediate feedback on a principle or question they’re trying to teach.
All that and they’d never have to leave their presentation to access them.

PresentationTube

PresentationTube | technologies | Scoop.it

A network for recording, uploading & sharing online video presentations

John Dalziel's insight:

PresentationTube, a free service, allows users to add narration and more to their PowerPoint files.
Dedicated PowerPoint and Windows users may find PresentationTube to be a good tool for creating flipped lessons, and/or learners could use PresentationTube to practice speaking on camera about a topic that they're going to present in face-to-face sessions.
Completed presentations are displayed with a slide in the center of the screen and the slide navigator to the right. The slide navigator allows you to skip forward or backward in presentations with the narration in sync.
To use PresentationTube users need to download the PresentationTube Recorder (Windows only). This allows users to record for up to 15 minutes. Their completed recording can be uploaded directly to Presentation Tube or to YouTube.

Use the Office Presentation Service to present your presentation to a remote audience.
John Dalziel's insight:

The audience, for some practitioners, may include people other than those in the current learning environment.
As eLearning professionals, we know that other viewers could be viewing a presentation on-line from another part of the world alongside the ones within the face-to-face environment.
Online presentation tools make this surprisingly easy.

ParticiPoll free audience polling for PowerPoint

ParticiPoll free audience polling for PowerPoint | technologies | Scoop.it
Free audience polling add-in for PowerPoint that uses audience members' mobile devices for voting and displays results live in your slides.
John Dalziel's insight:

ParticiPoll is a free audience polling plugin for PowerPoint that allows polls to be run quickly and with no need for additional clickers to be used.
Learners can vote via any internet-enabled device.
Signing up with ParticiPoll is free for basic features.
Once logged in, download the free plugin for PowerPoint.
Once the free plugin has been installed, you will see this new toolbar within PowerPoint.
This toolbar lets you start and stop polling sessions. The Insert Poll button will insert a polling widget onto the current slide. You can also insert a QR code that will direct users to the correct poll page.
It works best for quick polls where users want to ask for audience opinions, or to get a feel for overall understanding. ParticiPoll isn't a proper assessment tool where you can see who answered what (but it could be used 1-to-1).
The basic ParticiPoll is free to use, and gives you access to unlimited live polls and votes.
A pro version for £2.99 a month (or £29.99 a year) allows users to view any audience comments and to access past poll data.
I found the ParticiPoll plugin very quick and easy to use.
ParticiPoll is ideal for BYOD learning environments where learners have a mix of devices.
