    • A technology called oEmbed, in existence for a number of years, was built to solve the embeddable content problem. oEmbed is an open format, designed to let web publishers easily embed content such as photos, video, rich content — and automatically display other content by typing in a URL. Providers like YouTube, Hulu, Flickr and Vimeo all support oEmbed, meaning that pasting a URL for one of those services into a system with oEmbed support should allow users to quickly embed rich media.
    • “You should tidy this place, Holmes. I should hardly wonder that our new clients might think we are living in a pawnshop or some dreadfully disorganised sorting house.”
    • For years, I’ve worked with tools for creating online presentations, including TechSmith’s Camtasia, Adobe’s Captivate, and Articulate’s Storyline. They do the job well, but they’re not easy for many people to use, much less master.
    • Office Mix lets you pull together a slide deck, audio, and video (imported, Web-linked, or recorded via your webcam). You can use different pen types and colors in the presentation, such as for highlighting. You can add a screen recording (aka screen capture or screencast), as well as quizzes (multiple choice and true/false) and polls. Each slide essentially becomes a multimedia collection of whatever you add to it.
