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?
