  • Creating a “self-serve” Video Quiz Using PowerPoint - continued Testing Your Quiz Before you have students use your Video Quiz, make sure you take a “test drive” and run through it a couple of times yourself. Let’s test your buttons: 1. Go to slide one. Click on the Play Slideshow button. 2. Go through your slideshow slide by slide testing each of your buttons. Make sure the video plays. Make sure the slideshow is simple to understand and easy to navigate. 3. When you click on the wrong answer does it go to the “Sorry!” slide? Does the button on the “Sorry!” slide take you back to the question? 4. When you click on the correct answer does it go to the “Congratulations!” slide? Does the button on the “Congratulations!” slide take you forward to the next question? 5. Do you need to add any text boxes with written instructions to help students navigate the slides? 6. Do you want to add a button on the final slide that goes back to the first slide? Troubleshooting Your Quiz If there are problems with buttons or links: 1. To make changes or corrections, end the slideshow. Select and right click on buttons you want to edit. You can choose the Action Settings menu or the Format Autoshape menu from the right click menu. 2. To run correctly, the PowerPoint presentation and the Video On Demand video clip must be in the same folder. If you have trouble running the video, make sure the folder is on the desktop. (Not inside of other folders.) Making a Quiz Template Once you have a quiz set up the way you want (and have had students use it to make sure there are no “bugs”) you can then use that PowerPoint presentation as a master, and not have to create new quizzes from scratch! 1. It’s easy! Simply go to File > Save As… and give the existing PowerPoint presentation a new name. This creates a copy of the presentation. You can now make modifications without changing the original. 2. Next, import a new video and type in new questions! All of your hyperlinks and buttons can remain where they are. 3. Remember, even on a finished PowerPoint you can easily change the design template or color scheme to make the new quiz look totally different.

  • Integrating Video On Demand Video clips Into Existing Lesson Plans At the beginning of a lesson: To pique students’ interest in a new topic (an anticipatory set) Videos can be a quot;hookquot; to a lesson to draw students into what they will learn. Lecture-style presentations: When the teacher gives input to students and integrates clips into lecture-style presentations The teacher provides the information needed for students to gain the knowledge or skill through standard lecture/video. Modeling a multimedia project: Incorporating video clips as an end-product for students to create on their own The teacher can show an example/model of a multimedia project he/she may want the students to create for their independent practice to apply their new knowledge. Checking for understanding: Watching a video clip to review/ask questions of what was learned Do students quot;getquot; it? How do you know? Example: A teacher might have students answering questions/journaling about a video clip on Lever, Wheel, Axle, or Pulley to explain how these simple machines work. The teacher might collect the answers or ask additional questions. Closure: A clip can summarize what was taught during the class period. Example: A teacher just taught a lesson on Electricity and Magnetism. A teacher might say, quot;Great job for today, class. Now, in closing, I would like to show you a short video on Electricity and Magnetism to summarize what we learned. While watching the clip, have a paper and pencil ready to write down one thing you learned today and turn it into me on your way out.” Independent Practice: Once mastery has been reached, students can practice what was taught. Students can create a multimedia project as an end-product, either as an assigned project from the teacher or a free-choice project. unitedstreaming is a division of Discovery Education.

  • Integrating Video On Demand Video clips Into All Areas of the Curriculum Reading/Language Arts: Enrichment to literature: Discovery titles (doesn’t attempt to retell the story but to analyze the book, writing style of the author, etc.), themes; cross-curricular Analysis of the video itself for accuracy, prejudice, bias, etc. (media literacy) Prompts for creative writing Listening skills Oral presentation skills Homework assignments (have students watch a video from home) Grammar videos Closed captioning (read and watch at the younger grades or use for ESL/Special Education) Compare and contrast the book to the video Science: Process-type videos (experiments, procedures, demonstrations) Applications of real-world scenarios Applying knowledge (for example, behavior of gases) Showing motion (fast or slow) Risk-free observations Social Studies: Reenactments/dramatizations Cause and effect Cultural understanding Tying in current events (how history repeats itself) Supplements to what they are reading Geography Cultural diversity (who writes history?) Questioning media (does the film tell an even, balanced perspective from all voices?) Math: Visual representation of solving problems (equation is solved in front of them) Stopping to discuss the video (part of a problem) Freeze frame to show a slide transparency-type picture Remediation, missed a lesson, review Analyze the video and assess different ways to solve the same problem. Application: apply what they just learned to find other real-world examples (enrichment) unitedstreaming is a division of Discovery Education. Copyright ©2004 Discovery Education.

  • Using Videos in a PowerPoint Presentation About adding videos You insert a music, sound, or video clip on a slide where you want it to play during a slide show. 1. You can choose either to have the sound or video start automatically when you move to the slide, or to have the sound or video start only when you click its icon during a slide show. 2. To change how the clip starts or to add a hyperlink to the clip, click Action Settings on the Slide Show menu. 3. You can also add animation effects and change play settings by clicking Custom Animation on the Slide Show menu. For example, you can set a sound or video to play automatically in an animation sequence. Sounds, music, and videos are inserted as Microsoft PowerPoint objects. If PowerPoint doesn't support a particular media type or feature, you might want to use Media Player to play the file. You can also record your own sound or a voice narration. 1. To play a sound or video as a Media Player object, click Object on the Insert menu, and then click Media Clip. This method uses the Media Player to run the sound or video. Inserting a video on a slide 1. Display the slide you want to add the video to. 2. On the Insert menu, point to Movies and Sounds. 3. To insert a saved video file, click Movie from File, locate the folder that contains the video, and then double-click the video you want. 4. A message is displayed. If you want the movie to play automatically when you move to the slide, click Yes; if you want the movie to play only when you click the movie during a slide show, click No. 5. To preview the movie in normal view, double-click the movie. Setting options for video to play during a slide show 1. Select the video or sound icon you want to set options for. 2. On the Slide Show menu, click Custom Animation, and then click the Multimedia Settings tab. 3. Select the options you want, or click More Options. For Help on an option, click the question mark and then click the option. Resizing a video You can resize a video — just as you can resize any other object in Microsoft PowerPoint — by dragging a sizing handle. To achieve the best results for viewing in a slide show, however, use this procedure. 1. Click the video you want to resize. 2. On the Format menu, click Picture, and then click the Size tab. 3. Select the Best scale for slide show check box, and then click Reset. Note: Selecting the Best scale for slide show check box prevents videos from skipping when they're played.

  • About Hyperlinks and action buttons in a PowerPoint Presentation Hyperlinks You can add a hyperlink to your presentation and then use it to go to a variety of locations — for example, a custom show, a specific slide within your presentation, a different presentation altogether, a Microsoft Word document or Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, or an Internet, intranet, or e-mail address. You can create a hyperlink from any object — including text, shapes, tables, graphs, and pictures. Text that represents a hyperlink appears underlined and in a color that coordinates with the color scheme. The color changes after you click a hyperlink and go to a location, so you can tell which hyperlinks you've already viewed. Hyperlinks become active when you run your slide show, not while you're creating the show. Action buttons PowerPoint also comes with some ready-made action buttons that you can insert in your presentation and define hyperlinks for. Action buttons contain shapes, such as right and left arrows. Use them when you want to include commonly understood symbols for going to next, previous, first, and last slides. You can use these buttons for a self-running presentation at a kiosk or for a presentation that you plan to publish on your company intranet or the Internet. PowerPoint also has action buttons for playing movies or sounds. --- Inserting action buttons and hyperlinks for a “self-serve” presentation Action buttons are ready-made buttons that appear pressed in when you click them during a slide show. If you want the same action buttons to appear on every slide, put them on the slide master. 1. Select the slide you want to place a button on. 2. To place the buttons on every slide, point to Master on the View menu, and then click Slide Master. 3. To place the buttons on just one slide, point to Action Buttons on the Slide Show menu, and then select the button you want — for example, Home, Back or Previous, Forward or Next, Beginning, End, or Return. To insert a button with a predefined size, click the slide. 1. To change the size of the button, drag the shape to the size you want. To maintain the shape's width-to-height ratio, hold down SHIFT as you drag the shape. 2. When the Action Settings dialog box appears, click OK to accept the proposed hyperlink in the Hyperlink to list, or specify the link you want. Create the hyperlink you want using Insert Hyperlink. 1. Select the text or object you want to represent the hyperlink, and then click Action Settings on the Slide Show menu. On the Mouse Click tab, click Hyperlink to and then specify the hyperlink you want. To preview how a hyperlink will appear in the slide show, click Slide Show at the lower left of the PowerPoint window. If you set up a hyperlink to a single slide, also add a hyperlink on that slide to return you to the original one. Removing a hyperlink 1. Right-click the text or object that represents the hyperlink you want to remove. On the shortcut menu, point to Hyperlink, and then click Remove Hyperlink. 2. To remove a hyperlink and the display text or object that represents it in the presentation, select the object or all of the text, and then press DELETE.

  • Different ways to use a PowerPoint Presentation containing Video On Demand videos There are many different ways to deliver your presentation: On-screen presentation A “self-serve” presentation for one student at a time on a student computer station By using hyperlink buttons and other special effects available in PowerPoint, you can set up a “self-serve” presentation that students can view independently. Hyperlinks allow students to access videos, web pages, and link to other slides. Set up as a station on a classroom computer. Students can work individually or in pairs. On-line presentation Students access your presentation from school or home You can use all of the PowerPoint special effects and features to make an online (electronic) presentation exciting and complete. You can use such things as slide transitions, timings, movies, sounds, animation, and hyperlinks. After you decide that you are going to use a computer to give your presentation, you have many options on how to deliver it. Students can access your presentation from the classroom computer, school computer lab, or from their home computer. Students can work individually or in pairs. Lecture Support Presentation to the whole class If you are presenting to your entire class using a classroom TV or projector and screen, PowerPoint has a Projector Wizard that will automatically set and restore correct screen resolution for the target projection system. Your slide presentation can be set to advance by mouse click, or automatically on a timer. Self-running presentation One student at a time on a student computer station You might want to set up a presentation to run unattended on a classroom computer. Students simply watch the presentation, they don’t need to press hyperlinks or buttons to advance slides. You can make most controls unavailable so that students can't make changes to the presentation. A self-running presentation restarts when it's finished and also when it's been idle on a manually advanced slide for longer than five minutes. Students can work individually or in pairs. Presentation Support: Paper printouts You can design your presentation so that it looks great both on the screen in color and when printed in grayscale or pure black and white on a laser printer. You can preview and change what your presentation will look like when printed in black and white. 1. To adjust the colors so that they print best in black and white, click Grayscale Preview on the Standard toolbar. 2. In normal view, right-click any object on the slide, point to Black and White on the shortcut menu, and then click the option you want. 3. The changes you make while working in black-and-white view don't affect the colors in your on- screen presentation. Notes, handouts, and outlines To support your presentation, you can give your class handouts — smaller versions of your slides that are printed two, three, or six slides to a page. You can also print your speaker notes for your students. 1. Click Print on the File menu, and then click Handouts or Notes pages in the Print what box. 2. As you're working on a presentation, you can print your outline, including slide titles and main points. 3. In addition, you can use the Microsoft Word command (File menu, Send To submenu) to send your slide images and notes to Microsoft Word, and then use Word features to enhance their appearance.
