The Research Process: Presentation tools

Presentation Tools

There are a variety of presentation tools out there, here are some recommendations and tips:


Create presentation slides in Google Slides.  If you do not have a Google Account you can use PowerPoint. 

Refer to your assignment guidelines for what needs to be included.

Remember to cite! 

Getting Started with Google Slides





You can create a video of your group or a video with voiceover added to slides using Screencast-O-Matic (set up free account) or Apple users may want to use iMovie.  A shareable link or a MOV file or a MP4 file format are usually the best outputs to turn it in -check with your instructor.

Create your script.  If narrating over slides, you should not just be reading info off your slides - your narration should add to that.

Some built in computer microphones will be strong enough.  Earbuds/headphones with microphone capability can also be used as a microphone. 


Here are what outputs you can find in Screencast-O-Matic:


  Upload your video, click on the paper clip

Options then come up for downloading an MP4 and an embed code
