What great tutorials on edcanvas and slidesnack!  Both are new to me, so I truly appreciate learning about these new tools. I would rate the ease of this at a 9 because you show AND tell how to use both tools.  These are both practical technologies to use in the classroom at a station, or to post on a teacher website for students to use at home.  It would also be nice to use for a presentation.  The only problem I had were the slight pauses which I'm sure just happen due to processing time.   Thanks for the learning!


Technical Remarks:

Small pauses, but does not effect learning.

Good job, Lacey on your project!  I really enjoyed the layout that let the audience not only choose what tools they wanted to learn about, but also the way they wanted to learn about it as well.  Great if you're in a cafe or someplace and don't want the whole place to hear about how great Edcanvas is.  The only problem I had with the presentation was the screencasts did not automatically work when I viewed the presenation. I did notice that you had the videos in another folder so I could play them if I exited the presenation.

Time spent reviewing site: Went through the screenshots for each tool and watched one of the screencasts.
