Abstract
Although many educators acknowledge the importance of the training of presentation skills, the time allocated to this in the curriculum is limited. Web 2.0 presentation tools such as slidecasting might provide a solution to this problem, because it brings the activity outside the classroom. Moreover, it incorporates the characteristics of a community of practice. We therefore introduced slidecasting into secondary education. Results indicate that students appreciate this alternative mode of presenting and that the Web 2.0 environment transforms itself into a community of practice
