FOR THOSE WHO DIDN´T SIGN UP FOR  THE ORAL PRESENTATION THIS WEEK AND ARE STILL INTERESTED

WHY DON´T YOU RECORD YOURSELF ON VIDEO TOGETHER WITH YOUR PRESENTATION?

HAVE YOU HEARD OF SLIDE PRESENTER  ( CALLED “PRESENT.ME” BEFORE? OR SCREENCAST-O-MATIC?

PresentMe

This tool allows you to upload your PowerPoint /Prezi or Google presentation and then record yourself doing the presentation and even include your webcam. Then anyone can access it on the internet and watch and listen to you presenting. Great for your students to get them practising their presentations and great for language teachers as you can get your students to make presentations and practise their language. Of course, it´s not the same as talking in front of an audience but it might be pretty similar….. you are video recorded looking at your computer screen…NOT READING….
