I first got wind of Sutori when I looked up top tech tools for the classroom back in 2019. At first, I was hesitant to check out yet another tech tool for the classroom. My hesitation was from the countless times I would read about the next tech tool to take over the classroom. However, Sutori was not about taking over the classroom; it was more about providing a tool to use in the classroom. Sutori lets you transform your lessons into collaborative learning experiences. Sutori is the interactive version of PowerPoint that enables you to control your presentation with interactive tools such as quizzes, audio, video, forum, and files. The three reasons you should give Sutori a try in your classroom is because Sutori automatically saves your work, provides several options for your presentation, and easy integration.
When I first started to use Sutori, I was surprised at how Sutori automatically saves your work like Google tools (Google Word, Excel, PowerPoint). If there is anything that I despise about the desktop PowerPoint, I have to save my work. Remember the times when you were working on a project and your computer crashes without saving? Well, the good thing about Sutori is that your work saves automatically. You can focus on your work without having to worry about losing your work. Kudos to Sutori software developers for adding the automatic save feature.
As consumers, we like options but not too many options, or else we become overwhelmed. Sutori provides a unique selection of options when adding a slide. The options include: text, link, image, multiple-choice, match quiz, video, audio, “did you know?” file attachment, forum discussion, and bibliography. The multiple-choice option is simply a quiz option, just like the match quiz. The “did you know?” is an option to add a fact about a particular topic. The rest of the options are self-explanatory. The “add media” option for each slide is incredible because you can upload your picture, upload a link, a YouTube link, Google Drive document, voice recorder or select an image from Unsplash, which provides millions of royalty-free photos.
Once you complete your Sutori you can share it on various platforms. You can share with Google Classroom, Microsoft Teams, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. On top of the sharing, you can embed your Sutori presentation to your website. So if your educator with a classroom website, you can embed your presentation for easy access. You can also send out the public link to share with your students, colleagues, and the public. I am sharing one of the Sutori presentations I did for a conference a couple of weeks ago.
What are you waiting for? Are you ready to give Sutori a try?
