Last month I gave a presentation to a group of Canadian eLearning entrepreneurs looking to do business in Silicon Valley. I excerpted 12 minutes of the talk, titling it Silicon Valley, The DNA of a Community of Practice.
This is my initial test of Macromedia Breeze. First I narrated my PowerPoint presentation, using a $4 Labtec microphone. Then I saved the presentation and clicked the Breeze plug-in. Breeze condensed my sound files and began uploading the presentation to Macromedia’s server. Twenty-one minutes later, my presentation was ready to go, just as you see it here.
I like this product. As with Macromedia Contribute, it’s another way to put content creation in the hands of subject matter experts. I recognize that many SMEs aren’t good writers or speakers. That’s a problem. But it’s often better to get fresh information out the door than to wait until it’s properly edited. Also, getting the word right from the horse’s mouth leaves less margin for translation errors.
