The TLTC has the following innovation experiments in progress. For more information on any of these, or if you would like to participate in any of these experiments please contact the Director of the TLTC, Jim.Greenberg@oneonta.edu.
Prezi - is a cloud-based (SaaS) presentation software and storytelling tool for exploring and sharing ideas upon a virtual canvas. Prezi is distinguished by its Zooming User Interface (ZUI), which enables users to zoom in and out of their presentation media. Prezi allows users to display and navigate through information within a 2.5D space on the Z-axis. The TLTC has a pool of Prezi accounts for faculty who wish to explore this tool. Contact any of the TLTC staff to request an account.
