Record and Share Presentations

With Present Me, you can now record yourself AND your presentation!  What a great way for students to learn the real power of PowerPoint.  With design aimed at the essentials not every single word on the screen, PPT (or a PDF) along with audio/video content equals one complete presentation.

To carry it a step further, think of the students who were sick or had and early dismissal, and missed the presentation for your class.  Now with Present Me, they can pick it up anytime from home.  What another use?  How about the time that it takes in the classroom for each student to get up in front of the class and give their presentation on the assigned topic?  By the end of the 10th or 15th or 20th student, even the teacher isn't paying attention anymore.  What if students created their presentation and delivered it using Present Me, then were each assigned 5 other students presentations to view and evaluate? Valuable class time saved and a much more meaningful opportunity both for presenters and listeners.

Editing is simple, so no problems with doing it all in one shot.  If you make a mistake.  Just do that 'slide' over again.

Say goodbye to 'death by PowerPoint!'
