Knovio, the free video presentation app for web browsers and tablets, has introduced new features that make Knovio the fastest way to create multimedia content for YouTube. Now, anyone can use Knovio to narrate slideshows and PowerPoint presentations with audio or video, and post those multimedia stories to YouTube in just a few minutes.
Knovio is an easy-to-learn, fun-to-use app designed for everyone who has a visual story to tell: entrepreneurs, educators, marketers, trainers, salespeople, authors, and students. There’s no software to install and no messy hosting to worry about.
Knovio offers a simple, four-step process for creating multimedia content in minutes:
1. Choose a series of images or a PowerPoint deck;
2. Add commentary, using a webcam and/or microphone;
3. Preview it. refine it, edit it, enhance it, and publish it to the cloud;
4. Share it with the world via email, social media, or on web pages or blogs.
This week, Knovio introduced a new option to create high-definition video files that can uploaded to YouTube, where they can take advantage of YouTube’s free hosting and worldwide distribution.
“The era of instant YouTube business content has arrived,” said Michael Kolowich, CEO of KnowledgeVision, the creators of Knovio. “There is simply no easier or faster way than Knovio to turn an organization’s images and presentations into an engaging multimedia experience on YouTube.”
Knovio has already attracted more than 100,000 registered users across business, organizations, and campuses on six continents. It has especially become popular on college campuses, having been attracted users from 717 higher-education institutions.
Dr. Louisa Rogers, who teaches business information and communications at Florida Atlantic University, started using Knovio as a way for online students to give virtual presentations, and now uses it for her face-to-face classes as well. “The students loved the experience,” Dr. Rogers recounts. “Some shared the Knovio presentation format with their parents, who started using Knovio for business presentations — some internationally. All-in-all, Knovio has been a resounding success in my professional life.”
Knovio is available as a free service for desktop web browsers (accessible at http://www.knovio.com) and as a native app for the Apple iPad. It is currently beta testing an iPhone version for an expected public release in August, 2015.
