Free eBooks And Audio Books To Read Online Or Download - 9 views

  •  
    "This is the launch page for the pages here at Gizmo's Tech Support Alert that list sites with free ebooks and audiobooks.

    There are 3 pages that separate sites on the format of the ebook: Kindle, ePub, and Online reading.

    There is a main page for both ebooks and audiobooks that lists all the sites carrying each. There are also pages of genre listings.

    The genre pages that do not list an audiobook page, contain free audiobook links.  I am working on this and eventually all the genre pages will have separate free ebook and free audiobook pages.

    The sites within the free comic books and free motion comics pages are not included in the main ebook and audiobook pages."

    Podcasting simplified? I learned about this tool to make podcast and hosting an easy process. Look forward to trying it out. Easy and hosting are the operative words here. If the process is simple and there is a ready place for hosting your podcast, then that's all you need to make it happen.

    Free online suite of high power media tools. They 'look great'. Haven't had a moment to try them out. Quite sophisticated, they may be more than you need. I did view the demo for their Audio Editor and it's slick. You could create simple podcasts with it no problem, but you'd be using just a smidgen of the toolset available.

    With the rise of YouTube and podcasting, including audio and/or video in your eLearning is more and more a necessity. It used to be expensive to produce video and audio and required a studio to create. No longer. There are dozens of great, inexpensive tools that you can use to create audio and video for your eLearning. Attend this Online Forum to examine the tools and techniques that will help you use media in your eLearning.

    I am sure many of you are already members of the E Learning Guild, but there is a on line forum coming up in July that might be of interest.

    There are many programs like this one but this is one that I am familar with. It allows teachers to take a screen shot of their computer to share with others. You may also record movements on the computer with audio to create videos for students.

VoiceThread - Conversations in the cloud - 4 views

shared by mcphailj on 28 Jun 10 - Cached
  • Presence

    Text alone can’t deliver the subtlety and expression required for meaningful connection. If text were enough, we wouldn’t use emoticons, get on planes, or use web-conferencing software. VoiceThreading is a more human way to connect.

  •  
    A tool for having conversations around media. Upload pictures and then add comments. I've seen this used for students around the world to post pictures of their homes and then comment on the differences and similarities. Great language tool because comments are written and/or spoken. Great cultural tool because of the addition of media.

    VoiceThread is a great tool for asynchronous communication about a specific image, document, or presentation. While text is neat, there is something special about listening to someone's voice.
  •  
    VoiceThreads could be created featuring presentations (about a primary document related to immigration) for teacher and student use, encourageing reflection (of historic photograph(s) taken at Ellis Island) by students, and host a debate (about immigration).
  •  
    VoiceThread is a great way to add voice to an online class. Students can create and participate in discussions with voice rather than simply text.
  •  
    This, right here, is what I desperately wish my students had in place of Finalsite as a way of creating blogs for their school Mission Portfolios. I know it isn't set up the exact same way, but it would certainly accomplish nearly the same purpose.
  •  
    Bridges the gap between real-time discussions and the standard video lecture.
  •  
    voice, visuals and real prescence
  •  
    I think this could be a useful tool to communicate online. The "Text can't replace you" is what caught my eye.  It offers voice to your writing.

Last week, we looked at some basic tips to record high-quality audio. Those tips leaned more on the technology. Today we'll look at what you can do to get the best narration. I also added some tips from last week's comments section."

Prezi - Presentation Software - 30 views

  • "Coolest online presentation tool I have ever seen"
    • Dave Kunkle
       
      A super cool alternative to PowerPoint. Gives students the opportunity to collaborate on a presentation, rather than having to email it back and forth to work on it. This is an excellent presentation tool.

      I love Prezi. It is engaging and it allows an individual to upload pictures and videos without worrying about whether or not they will run. Students love that it is not PowerPoint, too!
    • Patricia Priske
       
      Some of our students love using this tool. The end product is fun to watch; occasionally produces motion sickness.

      While this is a great source for presentations, it is also a way for students to find presentations out there to gather information as well. There might be an issue, of course, with credibility of information found though as anyone can make and share.

      Prezi is a great tool for students that is similar to powerpoint. Unlike powerpoint students can work on a presentation together in different locations. Students can also access the presentation from prezi without using the same computer the presentation was made on or having to save it to a USB. However, the other computer will need to have a internet connection. When creating a presentation, you can create it on the same computer online or off which is nice. A great tool for students to use in group presentation projects!

      This would be a great tool to use for presentations at the health department.

      It would also be useful in presenting information to the community when doing grant work.

      Also accessible anywhere.

      I like that it is different than PowerPoint.

      Cloud-based: Information is stored and retrieved on many different social media platforms.

      For students: This would be an excellent way to gain practice and experience in a fun and educational way and prepare them for the workforce.

    Prezi is PowerPoint on steroids. I used it to present at a state conference last November. Check out David Warlick's newest Prezi on literacy.
  •  
    Create presentations on the Web. Free version available as well as Student / Educator versions.
  •  
    This is a new way to present information - it seems to be more active on the screen than power point. The nice thing about prezi is that it is free for educators and students and you can create your prezi offline. Prezi's can even be embedded into blogs.
  •  
    Awesome tool for designing presentations. Offers a large canvas that you can design, animate, and add multimedia.
  •  
    A colleague built a course introduction for students in this and I can see that it has lots of potential.
  •  
    This is a great presentation tool that zooms in and out and really helps the audience see the connection between ideas and the 'big picture'. I have yet to use it myself but I've enjoyed watching TED talks that use it.
  •  
    I'm going to have fun with this - thanks Kris!
  •  
    Prezi now has a PreziViewer tool for the iPad. This should be fun!
  •  
    A good tool to use to improve one's public presentations.  This seems to be especially needed for today's teenagers in schools.
  •  
    Visualize your ideas. Pan Left, Move Right, Zoom-in on a detail, or Zoom-out to show the big picture. Insert images, videos, YouTube videos, PDFs, or other media to make your prezi highly visual. Choose from our collection of templates and themes to personalize your prezi. Present online or download and show your prezi anytime, anywhere.
  •  
    A really cool twist on boring old presentations!
  •  
    I can't wait to substitute my "original" note format with Prezi! I think this will work outstanding with my Smart Board!
  •  
    Great tool to zoom in on specifics or create a second path of detail. Also allows students to work on presentations from wherever they are located.
  •  
    Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides. The zoomable canvas makes it fun to explore ideas and the connections between them. The result: visually captivating presentations that lead your audience down a path of discovery.
  •  
    This is very cool. I wonder how long it would take to learn. If it is reasonable, it would be well worth it.
  •  
    Have a colleague who uses this to teach nursing pharmacology. Great for visual presentation of process and decision making.
  •  
    I've seen others use this, but want to learn more
  •  
    I can see art, photography and design students enjoying this tool. It seems easy to manipulate and customize with their own work.
  •  
    This looks like an interesting tool to explore. I wonder about the difficult level for untrained ESL students.
  •  
    A collaborative presentation tool that is much more engaging that PowerPoint and that allows students to create presentations online or offline, interact with other students in their own classroom or around the world, and present from anywhere to everyone.  
  •  
    Prezi is similar to powerpoint but with more editing tools and capabilities. It's a nice tool for students because unlike PowerPoint, students can work on a presentation together from any location. The ability to access the presentation from any computer connected to the internet gives it capabilities PowerPoint doesn't have. You could also save the presentation on a laptop or USB. Students can also work on the presentation offline which is helpful if a student doesn't have access to the internet for several days.
  •  
    I use this for presentations in my class all the time! The students love it because it is something different besides just using powerpoint slides.
  •  
    Great alternative to powerpoint; coworker uses and really likes it
  •  
    This can be used instead of powerpoint.  Can be viewed as public and created by anyone with internet.
  •  
    I would use this presentation tool to design lessons that are engaging and interactive; especially time-on-task activities that require focus and application.
  •  
    Prezi is a presentation tool that has to ability to mesmerize K-12 students. I have used it to show the steps students need to complete for projects. This tool can also be used to show relationships between math concepts such as fractions and proportions.
  •  
    A tool I've seen and have wanted to try - now here it is! I hope to use it to create engaging presentations for my new smartboard that can be differentiatied according to the student or group I'm teaching.
  •  
    This can be a great presentation tool. Some of the animations should be used sparingly as they can be very jarring!
  •  
    I was introduced to Prezi last summer and had an opportunity to create a presentation that was used to introduce our PE curriculum to parents on Open House night. Our department received incredibly positive feedback from the parents as the presentation allowed for greater engagement than PowerPoint and I found it relatively easy to embed pictures and video.
  •  
    A cloud based presentation application.  
  •  
    This is a bit of a cheat since I've already been using Prezi. It's a great tool and very intuitive if you've used PowerPoint in the past. The audio narration is easy to add with Audible (also free), and there are many templates provided.
  •  
    Prezi - looks like an interesting tool to try for presentations. Recommended by my son who used in college.
  •  
    Takes presentations to a new level.  Particularly suited to complex topics that involve recursive processes.  Would work well as a means of helping my students better understand the writing process and the research process in our class.

AudioPal - Audio software for free Text to Speech and voice recording - 1 views

  •  
    Try AudioPal, a free voice software, to record streaming audio or convert text to speech.
  •  
    The free service looks intriguing enough to try. The paid sitepal service could be something special as well. I've tried this and embedded a simple one minute greeting into my 6-Traits writing class. Works great. However you do need to know a little HTML to make this work. You retrieve an embed code which you paste into the html of a website (or a D2L message, or a Moodle Label) Relatively simple once you understand a little bit of cut and paste coding. You've found another fine resource!
