Annotating slides during presentations

I'm teaching in large classrooms where the blackboard isn't visible from the back rows. I'd like to draw and write on slides while they are being projected. Saving the annotated slides for later distribution would be nice. I'm using a macbook and am thinking about buying a Wacom tablet. What hardware/software/technique combination works for this?

Best way to share audio + text content for viewing on iPhone?

I want to create multi-page content consisting of text + spoken-word-audio, viewable on iPhone. Content consumption would work as follows: 1. Page displays text and plays audio (additional tap to launch audio would be okay) 2. User taps something to call up next page. My first thought was Powerpoint, but I haven't found an iPhone app that handles audio embedded in PPT. I'm limited to working on my Windows PC, so I think Keynote is out. Any thoughts on a format to use for the content, and app to use to consume it? [more inside]

Help me find a Keynote Theme

Since Apple has thrice redone the way it stores keynote themes, my absolute favorite (that I purchased from who knows where) was therefore erased during an OS or Keynote upgrade. The main draw of the template was that certain slides were paired together, so that when they "slid" from one to the other, it looked s if you were exploring a huge slide, one piece at a time. All I remember is that it was mostly gray, and the Titles were about 3/4 of the way down the page. One might be a striped metallic bar with a rounded corner on its left end. The next slide would have the title at the same spot, but coming put of the other side, with the rounded corner on the right. [more inside]

Apple Keynote or OpenOffice Impress for making Powerpoints?

I am in charge of developing a series of presentation slides for a facilitated train-the-trainer session, and the trainers (both levels) need to have the ability to use the slides afterwards. While I have access to Apple Keynote or OpenOffice Impress to make these slides, I can't assume that the trainers will have anything other than Microsoft Powerpoint. Which product should I use, and what "gotchas" do I need to watch out for in terms of feature incompatibility? [more inside]

Apple Keynote Rehearsal Mode

I'm trying to use Keynote for my MBP in 'rehearsal mode...' Works fine except I notice that it doesn't seem to play the movies, etc. that I have as slides. Rather, it just shows the static first frame. When I try to press the 'space bar' to start them, as I usually do in straight play mode, it actually advances the slide (not what I want). AS I don't have a second screen handy I'm not sure if the movies and animations would actually be appearing per usual on the second screen. Anyone have any tips/experience on this? Anything I can change?

Picture of Steve Jobs' spiral-bound speaker notes?

I once saw a photo of the physical speaker notes Steve Jobs used when doing a keynote. I'm pretty sure it was spiral-bound, and showed timing directions for every slide, every transition, etc. Does anyone know where I can find that photo again? Thanks!

Embedding Movies in Keynote

This seems like Keynote 101, but I'm technically challenged. My computer recently crashed, so I'm using a backup to give a Keynote presentation. I've noticed some of the quicktime movies that were part of the presentation don't show when I run the Keynote on the new computer (even though there's a placeholder image). I'm guessing the new computer doesn't have the movie to link to; so the question is how to get the movie "embedded" as part of the Keynote file, so I could show the whole thing, self-contained, on any Mac? I'm sure I should have been doing this from the get-go, but trying to play catch-up. I also feel the photos I'm importing are more high-res than they need to be, or larger. Does anyone know the specs for a photo to show up nice and crisp vis projector, without wasting extra firepower?

Alternative uses for Apple's Keynote

Playing with the new version of Apple's Keynote I'm really impressed with the software. However, I never really have cause to do a presentation needing slides. Still, Keynote being part of the iWork suite I have it anyway, and it seems like a waste not to use it. What other sorts of things, besides, presentations, could an individual use Keynote for?
