Connecticut’s 23 Things

A Learning 2.0 Program

Week 8: Presentations

Posted by kabery on November 29, 2009

Web 2.0 technologies let us collaboratively build, manage and share presentations in person or remotely over the web, and allow us to incorporate music, audio and special effects to enhance our presentations.

What are some examples of presentations online?

Live Web Usability Lab, a presentation at CLA last year by our very own Steve Cauffman and colleagues.    (Slideshare)

Social Networking & Libraries, a presentation prepared by Sharon Clapp (Slideshare)

Take a look at some of the presentation created using online applications.

There’s music! There’s audio! There’s flashing lights!
