Cool Tool of the Month!
Wow, a while back I was all excited by S5
a neat format for web friendly presentations. The results were small, ideal for the web, but the tool was NOT easy to use. Then, feeling guilty about the rant below
, and spurred on by mentioning S5 again in the post below
, I finally got round to trying out PowerBullet Presenter
It is superb!
I tried the free version (1.35) allows one to quickly and easily produce web or email friendly presentations with accompanying narration. (The presentation on Tel Arad
was made within an hour or so of downloading the program, and though it measures just under 900kb - so it is a quite slow slide by slide download on a dial-up modem - it lasts over a minute and a half of narrated pictures). Easy simple, and I can email short presentations to distance students weekly. Way better than podcasting! I'm sold. Certainly on the free version, and probably on the paying one too... Now I'll just have to try some presentations for students!
