Several people have asked about how the presentation was put together and executed. Everything was done on a Mac using Keynote. The screencasts were recorded with IShowU with the assistance of Mousepose to highlight the mouse cursor and clicks. The presentation was controlled from an over Bluetooth using the Salling Clicker software.
