Record Annotated Video Presentations With PresentationTube's Chrome Extension

PresentationTube is a non-profit that has provided a free service to teachers for many years. That service is the ability to record video presentations based on PowerPoint files and PDFs. Recently, PresentationTube released a Chrome extension that lets you create video lessons in your web browser. 

PresentationTube's Chrome extension will let you record while talking over your PowerPoint slides or a PDF. You can record with your webcam turned on or you can choose to just record your voice talking over your slides or PDF. While you're recording you can draw on the screen, add text notes to the screen, and highlight text on the screen. 

When you have finished recording a presentation with PresentationTube's Chrome extension you can upload it directly to the PresentationTube website where you can then publish it publicly or keep it unlisted. Much like Google Docs, if you make your PresentationTube unlisted then only people who have the direct link to it can view it. 

Applications for Education

PresentationTube's Chrome extension could be a good one for anyone who is looking for a new, easier way to create video lessons based on their existing slides. Unfortunately, it only works with PowerPoint or PDFs at this time. Hopefully, in the future there will be support for Google Slides. In the meantime you can always download your Google Slides as PPT or PDF to use with PresentationTube.

Add Narration and More to Your PPT Files With PresentationTube

Disclosure: PresentationTube is currently running an ad campaign on FreeTech4Teachers.com

PresentationTube is a free service that teachers can add narration to their PowerPoint presentations. In addition to adding narration to your slides, PresentationTube can be used to add whiteboard drawings, webcam images, and webpages to your presentations. Completed presentations are displayed with a slide in the center of the screen and the slide navigator to the right. The slide navigator allows you to skip forward or backward in presentations with the narration in sync.

To use PresentationTube you do need to download the PresentationTube Recorder (Windows only). The Presentation Tube recorder automatically synchronizes your PowerPoint slides with your voice. The free recording tool allows you to record for up to 15 minutes. Your completed recording can be uploaded directly to Presentation Tube or to YouTube.


Applications for Education
Dedicated PowerPoint and Windows users may find PresentationTube to be a good tool to use in the creation of flipped lessons.

You could have students use PresentationTube to practice speaking on camera about a topic that they're going to present to their classmates.
