Usually, teachers face the need to support learners by providing new means for presenting curriculum materials, illustrate concepts that are less easily explained through traditional media, support new types of learning opportunities, and provide enrichment activities for students in traditional face-to-face lectures or through e-learning environments. However, many barriers are facing the selection and use of quality learning materials that could be avoided through systems that easily encourage teachers to produce and share course materials themselves.
PresentationTube offers a free video presentation recorder and video sharing platform to help teachers and students easily produce and share quality video presentations in a new way. The video presentation recorder allows presenters to narrate and annotate PowerPoint slides and synchronize a variety of essential visual aids, including webcam streaming, whiteboard, drawing board, web browser content, and desktop recording. The recorder automates the process and ensures that teachers and presenters only need minimal technical knowledge and spend no additional time creating materials. The platform uses YouTube API to upload and combine the video with scrollable slide thumbnails, allowing the learner to move to the respective video content and control both the progress and length of video presentation. Within few months, PresentationTube received a considerable regional recognition with 6,000 subscribers and more than 500 video presentations in all subjects.
