Prezi is a presentation software that allows you to add unique movement to your presentation. It is a beefed up ppt that allows you to create mind maps that can always come back to the key point. It zooms, swoos, and fades making it much more interesting to watch. No more death by ppt! You can save your presentation on their site and also view other people's work on other topics as well. It can be built on the web or you can download the software. It is worth checking out!

Kaltura is an open source video host. It allows you to upload many videos with the free membership up to 2G of content. You can then embed the code into your Google Site or your web page for viewing. You and your teammates can all log into the same account and you can combine a montage of videos to embed. All the videos are hosted through Kaltura so you are not clogging up your connection or space.

Here is a link to my sample Google Site with the embedded videos.
