Mashup Google Video and SlideShare Presentation: Zentation


I uploaded the PowerPoint presentation of Dean Giustini about "How Web 2.0 is Changing Medicine" to SlideShare some days ago.The presentation is great, and Dean Giustini summarizes his ideas in an incredible way, but it would be interesting to listen what Dean Giustini said at the National Library of Medicine during his presentation. Is it possible to do that without money? Is it possible to do that without training? Do we have to spend lot of time to make it possible? Do we have to possess supercomputers to do the work for us? The answer is no. We just have to find the right tool to do that. Presentations on-line certainly are a really useful tool for doctors, an example of great presentations online, with video and diapositives at the same time, can be found at Johns Hopkins Division of Infectious Diseases Pre-Recorded Infectious Diseases Grand Rounds, the first time I saw it I was just amazed. Video and PowerPoint presentation simultaneously displayed. I tried to do something similar, but the work and time I had to spend doing that did not worth. This week I found Zentation , it is a tool that allow me do that, I can syncronize a video on Google Video with a PowerPoint presentation on SlideShare. In other words, Zentation is a Mashup - A mashup is a website or application that combines content from more than one source into an integrated experience. - It is really simple to use, and like every product of the Web 2.0 it is FREE. It is still beta, but you can use it. Take a look to the example showed below.
