With Photostory you can make a dynamic slide show with your still images, add voice and fancy transition effects. Just add any image you have in your photo floder (or ripped online -as long as you're not using things commercially, I am pretty careless. You could also look for pictures that are free of copyright; I've seen references to sites with this quality lately.
I've tried creating a few Photoshop sets to find out how to do so, and it is quite simple. It seem to be impossible to edit sound once you have saved a project, so perhaps you would need to work with mode versions, like editing a draft before you make a final decision. Could also be me who did not read the documentation carefully yet.
The format when saved is .wmv
On Windows you need the latest Windows Media player 10 (probably sorks best with xp).
One irritation was that when on mac I could not open the Photostory files that others created, but that might be a matter of setting the right media player . You know, trial and error - and a litle help from your firends
Just found on my computer a nice illustrated manual I've picked up somewhere, can't see who created it so cannot give credit. Now lte me see if I can upload it here; format is a Word document that opens nicely in my MS Office 2003.

www.podomatic.com enables anyone to easily find, create, and distribute podcasts, which are audio files published to the Internet and available for downloading right into your iPod or portable music player. I've created one for my EFL class and it's working successfully for a project with students all over the world here (hellos are welcome!) http://caeb2006.podomatic.com/
Thanks to Rita Z for this entry
Andreas had this to say: I personaly prefer odeo to podomatic and use the player/html to include it in "normal blogs".
From Europe we experienced sometimes problems to upload or record online and edit at podomatic... If you are patient it is a great tool...
I have searched for a possibility to give presentations on the web. I found these and want to share them with you:
I haven't tried this in great detail, but it looks promising at first sight.
You can build a foto-presentation with sound that runs as standalone presentation.
Using flicr photos for your presentation, I haven't tried this in more detail.
Looks promising, you can give life presentations, if you switch to another page, you audience will see the new page too.
Seems to be the best of all. You can set up a meeting with shared desktop, blackboard and voice. I would like to try it out with some participants but haven't found some yet.
thanks to Marian Heddesheimer for this great selection
his is another freeware automatic correction exercise tool. It's also very easy to work with - very user-friendly, and the students also enjoy doing the exercises. What I like best about this one is the feedback given at the end of the exercise, which is very complete. http://www.lucagalli.net/

An alternative to "tiny url" with good functionality.
Probably the best feature is the ability to rename (via the nickname feature) the url to something that is meaningful. Tiny Url doesn't appear to have that capability yet.
If you set up a login at SU, you can establish a file of your personal snipped urls which can be designated as private or public access.

I'll pick on one here, but there are many, many available, but a plug in that I enjoy using with the Firefox web browser is called StumbleUpon. This plug finds random web sites that are based on the interests you define when setting up StumbleUpon. For example, if you are interested in woodworking, it will find random web site dealing with woodworking. It is a great little tool, but one to which you can easily loose many hours. You get to it by going under the Tools menu in Firefox and choosing Extensions. Choose the link at the bottom of the window called 'Get More Extensions'. It will take you to a web site where you can choose from hundreds of extensions that increase the functionality of your Firefox web browser.
Here is the direct link to StumbleUpon
