Well, the ol Captain of Synchronous Communications has been a bit out of the Program lately. But you know, it is a SNOW DAY here in the little village of Cornville, Arizona so I figured I better take this time to jump back in. So I am.
I have used Prezi in a live presentation once or twice. I remember being really scared that the thing would start zooming in and out of control. I saw it happen once to a presenter and it was awkward. If it happened to me I would look even more out of control than I usually appear. That would be bad.
Below is one I did for a session here at the college. I like the description, “Presentation hopes to share vision of learning where useful tools are incorporated into the learning environment wisely.” Sounds smart. Or wise?
Jing is my favorite quick and easy capture tool. We have lots of folks using it well. I use it to share information about tools and it has some nice function. We use it to feed our 57 Second Blackboard Tips into our “TeLS Webletter.” Below is an image I captured using Jing, so it is not just for video!
How about a hangout to discuss ideas for using the tools we have covered this last week? We can call it “A Week in Review.” Catchy titles help sometimes? I will offer up two sessions, one a hangout and the other a Collaborate session. Both can be informal and look at the tools in review and have a question and answer time. And just to see some of you folks again. I have tried to use the time converter below. I have struggled with it in the past.
I’ll schedule something later in the day, or early evening in a week or two. I know these are last minute, but let’s just see what happens!
