Prezi – An online alternative to PowerPoint

April 24, 2009 Leave a comment

preziI’am currently checking out Prezi. This is an online presentation tool similar to PowerPoint or Keynote. It does have a pretty neat approach of laying out the slides; although, while looking at a show it can make you dizzy. Check out this Prezi presentation so you can get an idea of what it’s capable of doing. There is a free portion along with some paid versions.

Zamzar – Online File Conversion

April 17, 2009 Leave a comment

zamzar1Zamzar.com is a free online file conversion site. It’s got a whole bunch of different file formats; from Image to word processing and video formats. They recently added an Audio portion which allows you to upload a text file and convert it to audio. Free text to speech! I haven’t really tried it out just yet, but looks promising. In order to receive the converted file you need to enter an email address in order for you to receive a link with the file. They have additional pricing plans if you want to have multiple file conversions and faster service.

LectureScribe: Free Whiteboard Recording Tool

LectureScribe is a really simple to use tool that lets you record and capture Whiteboard-style notes with audio. It is easy to install and was developed by Brian Dean from Clemson University. Best of all, it is FREE! This is something that allows professors to easily record short lectures and solve math problems on the fly for students. It exports the file to a SWF so they can be easily uploaded to a website or LMS. Even if you don’t have a tablet PC, I think this is something really handy to have. It doesn’t really replace products like Camtasia or Mimio, but it is definetely more flexible and easy to use. Click here to download.
