A week or so back I was given a sneak preview of a new tool for distributing recorded presentations online called dpcloud. The system allows you to deliver the presentation in three formats:
- A video of the presentation alone
- A video with media alongside (typically slides, but could also be Flash movies, Twitter feeds, web pages, etc.)
- The media with accompanying audio
|This example shows Roger Schank speaking at Learning Technologies 2011. This Facebook version includes a video, slides and a summary of the presentation.|
You can also attach documents as take aways and label the content with tags and descriptions. More interestingly, dpcloud’s Facebook and LinkedIn versions can also incorporate all of those platforms’ social media features, allowing the presentation to act as catalyst for an on-going discussion. If your organisation doesn’t like the idea of its employees spending time on public social networking sites, then dpcloud could also be integrated into an enterprise system, perhaps something like Sharepoint.
