Start Explaining with Mysimpleshow

When I heard about mysimpleshow earlier this week, I was pretty eager to try it. I love technology that makes presentation easy and engaging. I was blown away by how simple these are to make and how slick they end up looking. Mysimpleshow provides an elegant solution for your presentation needs.

This tool is web-based, so anyone with a web browser can use it. Teachers could use this to develop "how to" videos for lessons, or challenge students to use it to teach a lesson or create a presentation on something they have researched. This would be a great way to have students show their understanding after a lesson or a unit.

The real selling point of this tool is that it's so easy. I made a practice one about the life of Jimi Hendrix and it took me about 10 minutes from beginning to end. I really like the way it turned out.

The setup is genius. It's really as simple as filling out the information in the boxes, confirming the pictures and the voice over information, and saving your video. After typing up your script, mysimpleshow will give you suggestions for images that go along with your words. You can keep them, change them, or select new words and images that it didn't choose. The site is pretty bright though - it generally hits the high points of your presentation. Still, you'll want to check over the final product to make sure it found the kind of images you were going for. We had some confusion with "record" (music album vs. writing down information).

Follow the simple steps and soon you'll be creating your own awesome presentations. A slick visual presentation with a pretty quality AI voice over of your script. You can also record yourself, but seriously, the robot reading chops are legit here. 

Once published, your videos will be available in mysimpleshow, or you can export them to YouTube and share it however you want. I really can't say enough about this awesome tool. Check out my sample presentation below to get an idea of what you could be making.

Get started using mysimpleshow now! I can't recommend it enough.
