Tools for Communicology

1) Wordle

Wordle is a free site that lets you input text (such as President Obama's acceptance speech, seen below) and generate a "word cloud." Words appearing more frequently receive greater prominence in the cloud.

2) Graphs and Charts
This site has five different graphs and charts you can customize for your speeches. Once you choose a graph, you set the design, input the data, and add labels. Graphs can be printed, downloaded/saved, or emailed.


3) Presentation Rooms

There are two Presentation Practice Rooms located in Hamilton Library's Addition that can be reserved by University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa students. Each room includes a computer with Microsoft Office, an LCD projector, screen, white board, and worktable with chairs.
