 What is VUVOX ?

VUVOX is a free browser based web2.0 multimedia tool, which allows for the easy creation of interactive scrolling timeline-style presentations.  It has an easy to use WYSIWYG interface with drag and drop editing. You can create and publish your own presentations as well as search and browse presentations created by other people. You can also create your own custom channels to publish to. It is also possible to decide whether your presentations will be available to the public, or restricted to a private audience of your own choosing.

With Vuvox it’s a simple 3 step process to create a presentation: 


You simply locate the media you want to combine either by uploading it from your computer or adding it from various online sources, remix it into a new combination and share it with others.  To view a presentation simply click the play button or manually scrub the play-head back and forth with your mouse.

One of the best features of Vuvox is the ability to overlay every image with video, audio, text and hyperlinks to other web content. This enables you to present unlimited amounts of media in a relatively small amount of space. When you see an icon or a text box on top of one of the photos you can click on it and view or play the media that’s there.  

What makes VUVOX different from other slideshow presentation tools?

With VUVOX you can bring together and remix every online resource imaginable in order to create an uninterrupted audiovisual flow of information. The result is visually stunning.

The viewer is in control of their experience. Rather than simply pressing a button to view the next slide as in most slideshow applications, the viewer has the freedom to navigate the presentation on their own terms. They can interact and play by scrolling the play-head across the virtual space, zooming in and out of images, or clicking on hot-spots.

How can VUVOX be used in the classroom?

Vuvox is a great tool that can allow students to express their creativity and demonstrate their understanding of content in an exciting new manner. Vuvox allow you to mash many types of media together into a completely new and personal presentation. Teachers can use VuVox to create engaging teaching and learning resources whilst students can use it to create rich interactive multimedia presentations
