Micro lecture (or not so micro) using Adobe Presenter

Adobe Presenter is a very easy to use tool from Adobe that sits on your Powerpoint and allows you to give voice and publish in a very neat way. Non-techie instructors like this tool a lot. Once it is installed in their machine, they are able to organize and manage their micro lecture production with little or no intervention from the technical support team. The software and a shortcut link to the streaming server is all they need to get started. The only issue we have found in Adobe Presenter is that it can only be exported as Flash, it would be nice to have other saving or exporting format options.

Google docs as a presentation tool, no voice in yet...

Google docs can also serve as a remote presentation tool, however it does not have a way to insert sound and make it a micro-lecture, so I thought I would include it here as an option for the future "to-list" for  Google ;-)
