Student Presentation: Skype + ZohoShow

David Parry bio photo By David Parry

What happens when you take Skype (a service that allows you to make free or cheap phone calls—depending on how you set it up) and add in ZohoShow (an online free version of Power Point)?

A way for a student to demonstrate knowledge from a distance. This is from a teacher in secondary ed., but I think this general idea is useful for higher ed. (sans parents maybe). (Thanks Ryan for the link.)

Note: Zoho is actually a full featured online office suite/package-worth checking out as an alternative to Word, or a way for students to collaborate on document production.
