Office Mix - PowerPoint add-in

Office Mix - PowerPoint add-in | technologies | Scoop.it
John Dalziel's insight:

Office Mix is a new offering for practitioners, from Microsoft, which turns their PowerPoints into interactive presentations.

NOTE: Mix works with the 2013 version of PowerPoint by adding a tab with a number of tools to the interface.
Using Mix, a microphone and webcam, users can record themself narrating the slides and have this play along with their presentation.
They can also record screencasts and embed them into their slideshow.
Users can include interactive quizzes and polls, and they can receive feedback on how each of their learners performed on these.
Office Mix is very intuitive to use.
Mixes can be shared online and viewed on multiple devices.
It’s a great tool for blended learning activities.

Presentain - Present. Engage. Grow.

Presentain - Present. Engage. Grow. | technologies | Scoop.it
Presentain helps speakers engage and grow their audiences. You use smartphone as a clicker and audience can connect to your presentation using their devices. They can ask you questions, participate in polls, send you follow-up requests, share your slides and more. While you present Presentain records your voice so when the presentation is over you can publish the slidecast (presentation slides with voice-over) and start growing your online audience.
John Dalziel's insight:

The most exciting part of Presentain is its interactivity.
Viewers are given a pin to log in to the presentation on their device allowing them to interact.
They can view the slides on their device as you present them, and share any they like on their social networks.
They can also submit questions which users will see as a notification on their smartphone.
Users, practitioners or learners can create polls and multiple choice questions, viewing the responses in real time.
They can use their smart phone as a clicker, record the live presentation and share it later, and their audience can use Presentain to request a follow up action, such as to request a copy of the slides.
Drawbacks? Users currently can’t show embedded video in the presentations, and they can’t include animations or transitions. Presentation is compatible with either Google Slides or other slides converted to PDFs.

Moovly - Create Animated Content like a Pro | technologies | Scoop.it
Moovly is an online tool that allows you to create animated videos, tutorials, explainers, presentations, infographics, video clips, display ads or e-cards.
John Dalziel's insight:

Moovly is a free online tool that lets practitioners and/or learners create interesting presentations and animations.
Moovly lets users...

- add music
...and synchronize everything using the simple timeline interface. Animations can be added via the timeline.

Note: Free videos are watermarked with a Moovly Logo.
Sadly there doesn’t seem to be a way to embed them directly from the Moovly website.
Registering is Free but, there is an annual fee if users want the more advanced features and options.

iTools One-stop manager of your iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch | technologies | Scoop.it
One-stop manager of your iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch
John Dalziel's insight:

iTools is a simple and powerful tool for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch users; both learners and practitioners.
It is 100% freeware and a mobile tool. Users don't need to install the software onto a PC. Run iTools from a USB stick, as and when it is required.
The biggest plus for me is the ability to share both my iPhone and iPad screens on a Windowns PC; this is useful for both teaching and, as I've discovered, screen casting from the various apps. Resulting video clips are .avi.
iTools helps users manage media, iBooks, pictures and other files in their iDevices; although I haven't tried it yet, users are assured iTools can help install, uninstall and backup apps; it also can backup and restore folders.

Mural.ly - Google Docs for Visual People

Mural.ly - Google Docs for Visual People. Thousands of creative people from all over the world are using Mural.ly to grow ideas.
John Dalziel's insight:

Murally, using their words, provides a way for learners to come together to collect, think, imagine, show and discuss their ideas.
With Murally, learners can create murals and include any content they want in them. e.g. Learners can drag and drop images, video, etc. from any website (or from their computer) onto their mural.
Learners can also create presentations from within a mural they have already created.
Murals can be made public (shared live with a link) or private (only collaborators and/or practitioners, granted permission, can access the mural).
Note: an email address, Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus account is required for login.
For many,including myself, to be able to organize research and thoughts visually is HUGE.
Practitioners can provide the beginning a mural for learners, encouraging them to be curious together; to...
- ask questions,
- explore,
- research, and
- collect evidence collaboratively.
This way Murally can be used to show learning.
The collaborative features of Murally are well thought out, both practitioners and learners can see the history and message collaborators quickly and easily.
The possibilities overlap all subject areas and, to me, seam endless.

Microsoft Office Online - Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on the web

Microsoft Office Online - Word, Excel, and PowerPoint on the web | technologies | Scoop.it
Collaborate for free with online versions of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, and OneNote. Save documents, spreadsheets, and presentations online, in OneDrive. Share them with others and work together at the same time.
John Dalziel's insight:

Microsoft’s Office Online is a completely free, web-based version of Microsoft Office.

This online office suite is clearly competing with Google Drive, but it’s also a potential replacement for the desktop version of Office.
Unlike all of Microsoft’s other Office products, Office Online at office.com is completely free.
This is Office Online’s biggest advantage over desktop versions of Microsoft Office.

It  can be used on all the PCs you want without paying for additional boxed copies or subscribing to Office 365, Microsoft’s subscription service for Office.
Because it’s a web application that runs in your browser, Office Online will run on everything, from Linux PCs and Chromebooks to iPads and Android tablets.

It doesn't require any special plug-in and works in any popular browser, including Firefox, Chrome, and Safari — not just Internet Explorer.
Should you use Office Online?

Well, that’s up to you. If you’d like a completely free version of Office it’s a compelling option.

On the other hand, you may need the more advanced features in the desktop version of Office.
NOTE: it does provide access to learners who can't afford the desktop version of office.

Andy Kenworthy's curator insight, February 27, 6:21 AM
