PowerPoint Cameo Looks Cool and Could be Useful

On the heels of yesterday’s post about making better Zoom presentations here’s another post about a tool that could improve your online presentations. Microsoft recently added a new feature to PowerPoint. That feature is called Cameo. 

Cameo is a PowerPoint feature that lets you import a live stream of your webcam into your slides. In other words as your slides are presented your webcam feed appears in the slides. You can position the feed to appear anywhere on your slides. You can even put the feed inside a little frame or outline in your slides. 

Cameo is a feature that is currently only available to those who are Microsoft Office Insiders. I am not one so I’ve only seen the feature demonstrated by Mike Tholfsen who explains it more in this short video

Applications for Education

I can see this feature being a nice alternative to having your webcam feed displayed next to your slides. It makes for more streamlined look and puts more focus on the slides and a bit less on the speaker.
