Yammer as presentation tool

Yammer in education – part 3

Last thing I expected from Yammer was possibility to use it as presentation tool. So greater was my impression how good social network we have in our hands now.

My students are attending last year in our school. Primary or elementary school in Croatia lasts 8 years and then students have to choose secondary school they will attend next 3 or 4 years. They could choose among gymnasium, vocational school, technical or economic schools. Whatever they choose they will have to travel to some city 25 – 35 km far from their homes.

 

Presenting as professionals

As part of our citizenship education I asked students to prepare presentations aboyammer3-girlsut their future schools and present it to the whole class. They created presentations in Office 2013 as usual and attached them to the posts in our Yammer group. This time posts were tagged properly as #skole so we could easier find all presentations later. That is lesson we learned while creating digital gallery :).

It was nice to see that Yammer show first slide of attached presentations right there in the post. Did you know that? That is something other social networks don’t do.

yammer3-postsNext day in class I opened my Yammer group page, find their posts and clicked on first presentation expecting that I have to download file. But preview window opened and presentation was right there, just waiting to be seen. Students came to interactive board and perfectly done their presentations without any technical issues and without leaving Yammer.

Collaboration discovered

I noticed that if I oyammer3-open-presentationpen presentation preview from file list I get even more options. There is possibility to download, email, delete, view full screen and even to upload newer version of file. File could be marked as official and locked for changes. Related files, in this case presentations are showing on same page. Everything organized very efficient.

Later we discovered that above slides we have coyammer3-comment-toolsmmenting tools, which allows us to draw on slides, put highlights or even add text to slides and of course to add comments to the presentation. One more unexpected option which is not available in other social networks.
This commenting tools open for us way of collaboration directly on presentation that is shared in Yammer. We don’t have to leave our cosy Yammer group at all 🙂

It seems that every week we discover something new and find some new abilities of Yammer we have to try and test in our class. I think we feel like explorers but instead of exploring distance lands we explore virtual environments in Yammer. Who said learning is not fun?
