Convert A Narrated PowerPoint to a Video

This video/audio was produced entirely in PowerPoint using both PowerPoint 2007 & 2010 ::: In v.2007 I'm able to configure audio quality then reopen in 2010 to convert and save copy as a video all within "PowerPoint". Why both versions? Because in v.2010 the audio bit rate is set at mono by default and there seems to be no way to change it to stereo, yet v.2010 is the only version that allows you to save your .ppt as a video (.wmv) -- However, you can set audio quality in v2007, save, re-open in v.2010 and the settings persist -- weird, but it works -- this method is so much easier than importing audio, and then matching up slide timing with the audio, and well much much more!

Let's use video to reinvent education - Salman Khan

Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He shows the power of interactive exercises and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script -- give students video lectures to watch at home and do "homework" in the classroom with the teacher available to help.
