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.

HelloSlide - Bring your slides to life

HelloSlide - Bring your slides to life | technologies | Scoop.it

When used correctly, slides are useful in helping people convey a message.

 

The problem with most slide presentations is that there needs to be a speaker's voice attached to them to make them meaningful.

 

Hello Slide is a tool that people can use to add voice narration to slides that they display online.

 

Hello Slide is different from many other services because instead of recording a voice over users type what they want the narrator to say.

 

Hello Slide creates the audio and narrates slides for users.

 

The voice is slightly robotic, but it is much much better than most text to speech services.

To use Hello Slide, register for a free account, upload a PDF, then type the narration.

 

Hello Slide could also be used as a tool for simple digital storytelling projects.

TechTalks.tv | Share content by publishing educational presentations and videos.

TechTalks.tv | Share content by publishing educational presentations and videos. | technologies | Scoop.it

TechTalks.tv is making it very easy to publish, search and learn from slide-based videos; all this enables learning providers to share educational content on the web.

 

TechTalks.tv is a new service that is designed for publishing slides that are synchronized with videos.

 

Judging from the demonstrations on the site, TechTalks.tv is ideal for matching video of a live presenter (learner or practitioner) with the presenter's slides. On one side of the screen viewers (learners, colleagues etc.) can watch the video and on the other side they can view the slides with the same timing they would have experienced had they been there for a live presentation.

 

Users can also fast-forward through the slides if they wish.
