  11. 11. SlideCasts (add an audio track)You can hold your presentation „off-line“ by adding an audio track.Please note that music is not allowed! (I suppose the server automatically checks, if the MP3contains voice recordings only )

  15. 15. Conclusions - pro• easy to set up and use• free basic version• ZipCasts for free slide meetings• Plugins for Firefox and PowerPoint available• supports multiple document formats : • PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx) • Word (.doc, .docx, .rtf) • OpenOffice (.odt, .ods) • Apple (.zip, .key) • PDF • Google Docs
  16. 16. Conclusions - contra• presentations are always public in the free basic version• quite expensive pro-version with little extra benefit• a bit inconsistent, sometimes distracting website layout and ads• PowerPoint animations and other features are not supported: • simple animations, such as „appear“, are not displayed; the objects are just there from the beginning • the upload of presentations with more complex animations failed • the arrows in this presentation were not rendered properly
