Stanford Box for Groups

Friday, November 30th, 2012

The presenter has made the slides from this presentation available through Box.

Have you tried Stanford’s Box service yet? It may be just the solution for your department’s documents.

This video will teach you how to create folders for your group using Workgroup Manager and Box, as well as how using Box may help solve several problems for you and your group.

This Tech Briefing covered the basics of using Box, including how to create a workgroup, and how to integrate that workgroup with Box to allow files to be owned by the group rather than just individuals.

Prezi: A New Approach to Presentations

Friday, November 16th, 2012

Prezi is a mind-mapping presentation tool that, in some cases, is a viable and engaging alternative to presentation applications such as PowerPoint and Keynote.

In this session, Mark went through the steps of creating a presentation in Prezi, while also highlighting the latest features and new interface.

Presentations have not evolved much in the 50 years since the slide was invented, but Prezi is changing that. Prezi lets you bring your ideas into one space and see how they relate, helping you and your audience connect. Zoom out to see the big picture and zoom in to see details — a bit like web-based maps that have changed how we navigate through map books. —
