Web 2.0 Tools for diagnostic imaging professionals part 3 March 5, 2008

Posted by tomography in web 2.0.

Hello! In our last two editions of Great Web 2.0 Tools for Diagnostic Imaging Professionals we got acquainted with 20 useful web applications, and now I have collected enough for another edition. If you missed the first two editions you may check them in our Imaging 2.0 section. I invite you to give all these a try and let me know which one(s) you found useful. So let us get right into it:

1. It seems that today the majority of presentations start and end with three letters: ppt. And from that, people usually associate to Microsoft’s Power Point. And that’s great (to Microsoft :). But there are online applications to make attractive slide shows. And since these programs are not installed on your hard disc, you may work with them even while on the road, when your computer obeys Murphy’s Law and crashes the night before your presentation.

  • Thumbstacks is a simple presentation tool. It lacks video, animations, sounds and drawing, but if you just need a handsome, clean presentation that can be accessed from a browser (even during a conference), Thumbstacks is your tool. Check out their sample, introductory presentation that runs right from your browser.
  • Zoho Show is a bit more advanced than the previous one as it allows for version control and has animation. You may import images from Flick’r and all text in a presentation can be searched. Like Thumbstacks, you may present your work online and share with anyone.
  • Google Docs presentation maker is probably the easiest to use, and it comes bundled with your Gmail account. You may edit your presentations in real-time with more people, and it allows you to import your files in multiple formats.

2. If you are finished with your presentation you may store it online on SlideShare. This site has a ton of presentations previously uploaded by others, so it is for ppt. what YouTube is for videos; an endless and ever growing library covering virtually all topics.

3. In this new Web 2.0 dawn sharing is everything! With Vyew you may host online meetings, discussions and presentations in real-time and connect people from all corners of the world.

4. Change your browser to a better one: use Flock! Why? Because Flock is safe and simple to use like Firefox, but is has more cool and useful features. Flock is your ultimate online multimedia dashboard. It has never been easier to keep track of your feeds (text and media), email, and friends. Flock facilitates blogging with easy drag-and-drop functions, among others. Be sure to read my post on Flock.

5. Find out how to do just about anything on this site. You will find detailed descriptions and useful images. Remember the post “How to turn your computer screen into an X-ray viewer?” This is where it came from.

6. Use ajax instead of Office!

  • ajaxSketch is a web-based drawing tool that provides a familiar environment for diagramming, creating flow charts, free hand drawing and more. You can perform functions such as resize, rotate, change background or pen colors, and alter opacity…all from a Firefox browser!
  • ajaxwrite is a web-based word processor that can read and write Microsoft Word and other standard document formats. Anytime you need to open, read or write a word processor file, simply point your Firefox browser to www.ajaxwrite.com and in seconds a full-featured program will be available for you to open, edit, print and save.
  • ajaxXLSviewer is a web-based spreadsheet viewer that allows you to easily open any .xls file within your Firefox browser. Compatibility with Microsoft Excel and OpenOffice allows ajaxXLS to preserve all your common cell formatting categories such as text styles, decimals, currencies, dates, and times as well as formulas, backgrounds and borders from the original documents.

7. Create tutorials about anything with Wink. This free software works on multiple platforms, and you may import your work in several different formats such as Flash, PDF, HTML or in a standalone executable file, and more!

8. Stay up to date with ODEO, a free library of podcasts and mp3’s. All material on this site is free to download, and you may subscribe to your favorite podcast providers’ feed. Check out these great examples:

9. Create your CV online and upload it into a huge database so that your next employer may find you easily. With VisualCV you may add photos and even videos of your sample work, and you can share your CV with whomever you like, but you control the amount of information each party can view about you. Certainly, importing your CV in multiple formats is a piece of cake.

10. And the last one is for fun: go back to school with the help of web 2.0 and The Massachusetts’s Institute of Technology. Brush up on your knowledge with lecture notes and poscasts on 1800 courses! Check out my post about this topic and be sure to visit the MIT’s website.
