BrainShark, is a service for narrating and sharing slide presentations online. I’ve written about some of their offerings in the past. Recently they launched a new service for sharing PowerPoint presentations through Box. Now you can share your PowerPoint files with others for viewing and or file editing. Learn more about the new service in the video below.
One of BrainShark’s signature offerings is their SlideShark service for sharing PowerPoint presentations over iPads. SlideShark converts your PowerPoint files without losing any of your original formatting, transitions, or animations. To use SlideShark just upload your PPT files to your free SlideShark account, SlideShark converts the files for you, then you can access your converted files on your iPad at anytime using the free SlideShark app.
BrainShark also offers myBrainshark for Android to share presentations that you narrate on myBrainshark. Here’s how myBrainshark works; upload a slide presentation that you’ve created then use your computer’s microphone to record your voice over each slide. If you don’t have a microphone My Brainshark provides a phone number that you can call to create a voice recording.
Applications for Education
BrainShark’s services could be very useful for delivering short lessons to students through multiple devices.
