Finding Material for Presentations in the Web 2.0 and Using It

Autor: Patrick Danowski, Berlin State Library, Germany



Giving a good presentation on a conference about a topic, is not so easy like it sounds. There are many ways and this paper should not describe one way, but it should describe how the web 2.0 can help you to find some of the ingredients, that can be useful. This can be graphs, pictures, videos, slides from other presentations and also some points of texts but not to much. If you like to publish your presentation you also have to care about some copyright issues. The Web 2.0 offers a lot of options to find good material for presentations that will will be allowed to use. From this concrete problem we will take a look how to search the web 2.0 and what new media have to offer in the area of teaching and scientific work.
