After Buffy/The Unquiet Librarian’s great post about her multimedia monthly report I thought I’d share a couple of visual things too. The EdVibes blog has had a couple of very useful posts recently. I’ve gotten hooked on trying to use more conceptual images in my presentations and have relied on Flickr Creative Commons search. A recent EdVibes post includes a link to Project CC. Project CC is collecting all kinds of Creative Commons sites. Check it out for lots of terrific resources. I also really like the Visual Definitions of Web 2.0 that is on EdVibes. Each one of the 30+ different visual definitions includes the image source.
Since I’ve been trying to force my very pronounced left brain tendencies (I’ll admit it, I LIKE PowerPoint for many purposes) I decided to explore a new PPT alternative that’s been getting quite a bit of publicity: Prezi. I created a small wiki with links about how to use Prezi but what really convinced me to try out Prezi myself was a media specialist created Prezi called Yo…Cab. When you link to Yo…Cab mouse over MORE and choose Autoplay and full screen to get the full effect. Then sit back and enjoy!
