Create, collaborate and share documents and presentations online.

Planning

  • Mock up your interface before you start building it using free online mock up tools like: https://moqups.com/

Presenting

  • Prezi: www.prezi.com
    • Prezi is great for non-linear presentations, although do be careful using it to distribute information to your students, as it can not currently be read by screen-readers, so students with visual impairments will not be able to have the document read aloud to them. 
    • It is also hosted on a remote web server, so have a backup of your presentation in another format in case it's unavailable during your presentation slot.
  • Microsoft PowerPoint - PowerPoint is great for linear presentations.
    • Annotating:When you complete the presentation you can choose to either keep or remove your annotations. So next time you’re presenting using PowerPoint look in the bottom, left of the screen for the greyed out annotation tools.In Microsoft PowerPoint you can draw, annotate, highlight and enable a pointer for gesturing to certain parts of the slide. When you complete the presentation you can choose to either keep or remove your annotations. So next time you’re presenting using PowerPoint look in the bottom, left of the screen for the greyed out annotation tools. Find out more ...

Promoting Audience Participation

  • TextWall: this low cost online service displays text messages proceeded with a particular code: http://www.textwall.co.uk
  • Twitter Wall: The free, online tool Twitter Fontana displays tweets from a particular hash tag: http://twitterfontana.com
  • Electronic Voting System (clickers): Students can answer questions that are posed within PowerPoint and then see what others have answered. This can be used to promote discussions in large lectures. UCL has voting handsets installed in several lecture theatres and some sets available for borrowing. See: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/isd/staff/e-learning/tools/e-voting
