Last week at eTechOhio2009 I had a wonderful opportunity to see and hear Alvin Trusty present a session on multimedia design tips and copyright titled “How to Create a Great PowerPoint Without Breaking the Law: Take 2.0.” I posted my own audio recording of that session as well as session text notes last week. Alvin let me know today via email (yes, for those of you who are amazed, sometimes I DO actually read and reply to email!) that he’s posted the synchronized slides with the audio recording to Vimeo.
Without a doubt, Alvin’s presentation is MUCH more powerful and impactful in this video form than it is as an audio-only recording. After all, this was a presentation about visual design and techniques!
Alvin did add a new slide to the preso at minute mark 12:57. There certainly were a motley bunch of educators gathered on the front row of this session!
On his Flickr stream Alvin also included the only photo I’ve seen to date of my keynote at eTechOhio. This was the largest audience I’d ever addressed previously. It was a lot of fun, but also a bit intimidating! The video which was playing when this photo was snapped is “A sledding video from the sled” posted to Flickr, from 2 weeks ago here in Oklahoma.
Thankfully the front row for my keynote were not quite as disruptive as “some” of the attendees at Alvin’s presentation were. Alvin was also quite kind during his presentation when he came to the point of “not reading your PowerPoint slides.” I did end up reading a couple of my slides, and with hindsight should have just read the highlights instead.
