Try www.voicethread.com

you can do some cool stuff with that tool.

Another thing, although more time consuming than 45 minutes, would be to get students to create a presentation (about whatever topic) that uses an ONLINE application, rather than a software package (no Word or Powerpoint or Keynote!).

Let them find and choose the site they want to use (although this itself would take more than 45 minutes). It alleviates problems with saving/losing work, and it will be accessible from any computer with internet access.

Pretty much all of these kinds of sites allow you to share a link to the presentation, so the students can email you the link, then you can assess their work. They can also write a review of the site they used, so others find out about it.

For creating a wiki: wikispaces.com. Ning is great for blogging and online learning environment. You can easily upload videos in Ning, too.

Some other places to look at: slideshare, animoto, prezi, bookbuilder, coveritlive...

Good luck!

Hi Dana,

With your studies in Education Technology, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording you might find of interest.

Hi Dana and welcome. I made a tutorial type video on "what is this thing called ning" if you would liketo watch it. Might help explain a bit for you. If you go to the search bar on the side, you can search for wikis and other online tools, and all the previous discussions on those tools come up. If you would like to start your own discussion, you can click on the link to discussions and add one of your own. Then, watch the responses come in. Make friends, watch the front page and you will soon get the gist of ning. It is fabulous for developing a strong personal learning network.
