After a pretty successful online keynote we all had the opportunity to be a part of for the ARF Conference...in Sanibel Island...I have been looking for ways that we might be able to present materials online (and look pretty snazzy doing so).
In the past week or so I've come across two new tools that I think could revolutionize the way we do things.
Dimdim is an online conferencing tool. You can add your .ppt or .doc to the center of the meeting, and have your own webcam embedded off to the side. With more expensive plans, you can integrate the webcams of others so you can have a "virtual meeting". In the case of the ARF keynote...I would see this as streamlining the talk and work that we did. Not that Don peering down into the webcam was bad...but...
The second tool would be Prezi. Prezi is a "zooming presentation tool". There's no way for me to really explain what it does other than saying that. You need to see if to believe it. Basically it dramtically brings your audience through the materials that you're presenting. Take a look at the write-up Lifehacker put out recently on it.
I may try to use this for my upcoming talk at IRA.
