Present.me is a handy service for recording video and or audio to accompany your slides. Present.me allows you to sync your recorded audio and video to your slides then publish everything as one complete package. Here’s how it works; upload a set of slides to your Present.me account, then use your webcam to record a video of yourself talking about those slides. Your video and slides will appear side-by-side when you have finished recording. If you don’t want to record a video, you can simply record audio only.
Present.me accepts a large variety of presentation file types. And if you sign-in with your Google account, you can import presentations to Present.me from your Google Drive account.
Present.me allows you to have three presentations for free before you have to either delete an old presentation or upgrade your account.
Applications for Education
Present.me could be a great tool for teachers trying out the flipped classroom model. Aside from the flipped classroom model, using Present.me to record a presentation and posting it online could be helpful for students who are absent on the day that you give a short lecture. Recording a presentation and posting it online with Present.me could also be helpful for students who need some accessible review materials.
