On Friday the 27th February I gave a few online presentations (conferences) for the MoLeNET programme.
One was on GPS and location based learning.
Presentation on on GPS and location based learning using mobile devices, it covered some of the GPS devices out there and how location based learning can be used.
Today I have been at a JISC workshop on repurposing resources at which I gave a ten minute presentation on the institutional perspective on repurposing resources.
This gave me an opportunity to share my presentation with others.
Now I know I could just upload my PowerPoint presentation, but that means people need to download and open it. Problems arise as I used Apple’s Keynote presentation software and not everyone has that. Yes I can export to PowerPoint, but that is not always perfect, more so if you use some of the more advanced features of Keynote.
So I decided to use a feature of Keynote which is to send to Youtube.
This works quite well, though some institutions ban YouTube so less useful there then.
I also used Slideshare and uploaded my presentation there as well, though I had to export as PowerPoint first.
On both presentations there is (virtually) no audio, which to be honest the presentation does need. I think I prefer the YouTube version as it captures the transitions from Keynote which Slideshare doesn’t.
Another option would be to use Google’s Presentation.
Unfortunately I couldn’t get to BETT this year, issues with my leg meant that travelling by train, tube and walking around a huge show like BETT was an impossibility.
Of course with the wonders of technology it is possible to see what others thought was worth photographing and though I couldn’t attend the presentations, some people considered those of us who couldn’t make the event, or came on the “wrong” day, and have put there presentations online.
One such presentation that I have gone through was this interesting one on mobile learning, called Disruptive Mobile Learning. Mike Sharples the presenter has used Slideshare and uploaded the presentation, so you can view it online.
Have a look through and see if it resonates.
