PresenterNet Users Add New Applications with Macromedia FlashPaper2

Saturday, February 26, 2005
posted by Geetesh on 2:22 PM IST

PresenterNet, provider of online interactive Web conferencing services, has demonstrated new online applications enabled by integration of Macromedia FlashPaper2. PresenterNet now integrates FlashPaper2 files from any source into contiguous online presentations, so that FlashPaper source documents appear as part of a traditional slide group. Because the Macromedia product can convert any printable document to Flash, PresenterNet users routinely include extra-large documents like complex spreadsheets, flow charts, detailed blueprints and geographic maps along with their traditional PowerPoint slides.

Students in Dan Carroll's physics class at Yorktown High School in Virginia turned in their science projects last week. Some of them prepared their work the way generations of students have done, with labels and charts pasted onto display boards of a prescribed size. But others were able to bypass last-minute trips to the store for cardboard, glue sticks and markers, because MrCarroll encourages the use of PowerPoint software. "It's hard to glue things on those boards, and some kids don't do it well," MrCarroll said. Technology is rapidly changing the world of science, but it is only now starting to change the world of the science project, a ritual of the academic year. Now that computers are second nature to many students, some teachers are abandoning the traditional cardboard displays in favour of electronic files. Some are even creating PowerPoint templates to make it easier for students to produce a smart-looking showcase. More on the Australian Financial Review site...

Maybe you've been in a conference room when an earnest co-worker dims the lights and fires up a PowerPoint presentation. If the lights were on, this well-meaning individual would see eyes glazing over, as the audience cringes at yet another set of informational graphics, charts and bullet points.
