Tip #275: Tiny LCD Remote and Digital Audio Recorder

Last week, I mentioned that I attended a workshop by Dan Poynter. Dan gave two suggestions that I am definitely going to follow, so I thought it would be nice to pass them on to you!

First, he uses Velcro to mount a very tiny LCD remote onto a ring on his middle finger. This way, he always knows where the remote is and holding it doesn’t interfere with his hand gestures. I actually didn’t even notice that he had it in his hand. Isn’t that creative?

I love this idea because I frequently put my remote down, forget where it is, and then have to hunt for it. Not my most professional moments! Dan uses a radio frequency (RF) Honeywell StreetSmart remote, which you can learn more about at http://www.powerremote.com.

Second, he records his presentations on a small Olympus WS2005 digital recorder ($150). He then uses Audacity, a free recording/editing program. If you have ever been asked for audio versions of your presentations, this approach can help you create audio products pretty easily. I’m certainly going to try it!

Next week, we will continue our look at some very useful gadgets, strategies and resources for trainers! If you’ve discovered some gems, please share them and we’ll use the Tips to pass the word along!
