Your Presentations on the iPad: How To Convert From PowerPoint to HTML5 or Java with Impatica

Your Presentations on the iPad: How To Convert From PowerPoint to HTML5 or Java with Impatica | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it

From the article:

"Shortly after the launch of the iPad in April 2010, Steve Jobs published an open letter on Flash. The world changed. HTML5 now had the backing of the biggest innovator of our lifetime.


It was now a legitimate and viable technology to replace Flash. It offered a single, standard, firewall-friendly and plug-in free way to deliver sophisticated content to both computers and mobile devices.


Corporations, universities, colleges and other organizations have been flooded with iPads. The way we work and consume content has been changed forever.


Except for the fact that there is no Flash or Java, tablets seem ideal for mLearming.


Given that existing conversion software does not do the job, eLearning professionals are faced with a decision to purchase tools that allow them to create their content directly in HTML5 format. 


The player in Impatica for PowerPoint Version 5, uses HTML5 when it is available and Java when it is not.


A simple drag and drop is all that is required to convert PowerPoint content into high-quality online presentations that will play everywhere: on computers, iPhones, iPads and other devices.

Highlight, Present, Draw and Share With The New Anywhere Virtual Whiteboard from Polycom: The UC Board

Highlight, Present, Draw and Share With The New Anywhere Virtual Whiteboard from Polycom: The UC Board | Presentation Tools | Scoop.it

From the article: Standard whiteboards aren’t cutting it anymore in an age where everyone in enterprise is concerned with sharing and collaborating over projects via the cloud from anywhere, anytime.


Additionally, content on whiteboards don’t typically show up very well when in video conferencing mode.


Polycom is trying to meet both of these challenges with the introduction of the Polycom UC Board, which basically shares content written on the whiteboard to all screens and mobile devices that are connected to the video meeting.


Along with sharing presentations, the UC Board software enables conference participants to use the UC Board to write, annotate or highlight key points directly on top of the shared content in real-time.


The UC Board solution is comprised of a compact infrared sensor that attaches to a whiteboard or LCD screen, along with a wireless stylus that meeting hosts can use to write and sketch with just like any regular pen or marker.


Such a solution is especially targeted at students and professors, doctors, architects, and marketing departments.


Naturally, there is a catch. Anyone who wants to use this product must already have a Polycom HDX series video communications system already set up.


At that point, it should be relatively simple to use (in theory) as it is touted as a USB plug-and-play configuration.


The Polycom UC Board solution is available starting today for $1,999.

Speechmaker is an Ipad app that allows any presenter to see the text that he has to present scroll at his preferred speed in front of him, with the font size and color of his preference.


In addition Speechmaker works also as a timer, and voice recorder.

From the official web site: 

"SpeechMaker has features that expensive teleprompters don't have like being able to do an audio recording of your practice or live oration.

Now you can practice and hear how you sound before you give that important speech.

Another feature not found in other iPad software or in teleprompters is Text to Speech (TTS). TTS is available anytime at the push of a button which will then scroll and read your speech out loud.
 

Key SpeechMaker Features:
 

* Create new speeches on the iPad or import text, html or google docs.


* Audio recording allows you to see, scroll and practice your speech like using a teleprompter.

* Text to Speech (TTS) hear the iPad speak out loud the speech as it scrolls and highlights each line.


* Control the look and feel of a document via buttons for changing:
- background color
- fonts
- scroll speed
- font size

* At a glance timing shows:

- track elapsed time
- remaining time for speech. (requires entering an estimate of speech time)
- estimated time of speech (requires entering an estimate of speech time)


* Import Speeches via DropBox, Google Docs and iTunes file sharing.


* Compatible with Mac or Windows computers connected to your iPad."
