Presentain - Presentain allows instructors to upload a .pdf of a PowerPoint to the app, create polls, and share both to student devices (tablet, smartphone, laptop) via a custom URL. Students do not need to register for an account to utilize the features. Instructors use their smartphone or tablet as a remote to control the slides during class. After, instructors stop the presentation and may select for the app to publish a recording with audio. The recording can be embedded in Canvas. There is a subscription fee for this app for the instructor.
