Book Trailer for Web 2.0 Vol 2

Making preparations for TCEA 2013! I am so excited to be presenting 3 workshops this year. I will be discussing some really great tools for video tutorials, mobile learning, and book trailering. I also have a new book out that was published in October. It will be available from Visions Technology at their booths on the Exhibit floor. Come check it out!

Presentation Tube

I was catching up on reading blogs yesterday and a post by Richard Byrne (www.freetech4teachers.com) intrigued me. He posted about a site called Presentation Tube (www.presentationtube.net)where you can add narration to your PowerPoint presentations.

This would be a great way to add presentations to a blog or web site. If you are teaching in a flipped classroom, this software would help you create the instructional videos for your students. Librarians could easily create and add video tutorials to their site to extend a library lesson.

The Lite version of the software is free. Users are limited to 15 minute videos and less features. Paid versions are also available. Share your presentations by embedding them or posting a link.

Here is a simple presentation I just made:
