This is about the same length as my attention span and perfect for showing at the end of a staff meeting. Of course there are some sites like this out there already and we will link to similar sites on the homepage.We may end up having a few different videos on a topic e.g. Beginner’s guide to Twitter and Advanced use of Twitter, but generally it will be short and simple."

I love Prezi, compared to powerpoint it makes presentations so much better. Thanks for sharing.
Shona Whyte's comment, July 15, 2012 1:35 PM
lelapin: Yes, Prezi makes things look more fun. Never seen one live or made one myself, though - maybe too tape à l'oeil for me ;-)
lelapin's comment, July 15, 2012 1:59 PM
I'm afraid there's also something one working in a company who would want to digress from presentations under Powerpoint should be made aware of: unless he or she pays a fee the Prezi logo remains.
Tape à l'oeil? Well maybe a little; also, one feels also kind of dizzy after watching too much and too many of them LOL

Twinvox

Twinvox | TELT | Scoop.it
Ricard Garcia:
Here's a good site for those who care about speaking! Excellent service where people can share their communicative skills as native speakers of a language as they share a good time with someone else who is willing to learn that language through a videochat within the twinvox platform. Find peers and start sharing your skills and learning for free from someone else the language you want to learn. Good initiative, indeed!
