  • Welcome
  • I love PowerPoint.
  • It’s complicated.
  • So, here’s my situation, I work at Metropolitan Community College in Kansas City.
  • And we have 5 campuses, about 18,000 students and 3,000 courses… and, supporting those
  • Are three instructional designers.
  • Here’s the situation at our campus- instructors are responsible for creating their content.
  • Almost all instructors have started teaching in a traditional onground classroom, with the standard classroom tool, PowerPoint. http://bccp.lbl.gov/Academy/wksp_pix_1/mat.jpg
  • When they take their courses online, they take their classroom materials online too.
  • The way many presentations are used in online classes at my institution raise two main issues: technology and design
  • The way many presentations are used in online classes at my institution raise two main issues: technology and design
  • Despite knowing the research supporting varied instructional strategies, it appears that convenience and comfort are the driving factors in preference.
  • Same students also said - Comfort, convenience, and ease were not at the top of their list when contemplating their overall experience in the course. In place of those descriptors were diversity, exciting, challenging , new technology, and new strategies.
  • That’s where Issuu and SlideShare come in. They primarily rely on presentations for their content. They can both simplify and enhance the delivery of a presentation, in Blackboard or independent of Blackboard, for both students and instructors. I’m going to compare and contrast them to PowerPoint, show you how they work from the users’ perspective, and discuss how to get started using them.
  • They both simplify the process of putting materials online for the instructor They both enhance the delivery of a presentation, in Blackboard or independent of Blackboard They eliminate or reduce some of the obstacles students encounter when accessing PowerPoint. I’m going to compare and contrast them to PowerPoint, show you how they work and how to get started using them.
  • The opinions expressed are solely my own. I don’t speak for Issuu, SlideShare, Microsoft, Blackboard, or my institution. I don’t know everything about everything.
  • But when PowerPoint makes that transition, it doesn’t always translate in a way seamlessly.
  • Sometimes there are accessibly problems users.
  • And there’s a wide range of results- depending on how the presentation was saved…
  • What browser’s used to view it…
  • And the final file type available for the student… Definitely do-able.
  • Not stated on the site
  • In addition to PowerPoint you can use a variety of other file types, including documents, PDF’s and RTF files. For the best results use a single page layout and have all pages the same size.
  • How do you want to share?
  • You can upload or link to an audio file.
  • Then sync the audio with the slides.

    • 38. “ We primarily use Flash to display your publications, and 'extracting' meaning from that to use for reading devices etc. is not as easy as we could wish for. We'll keep exploring the options here, though. However, if you want to make everyone happy, you should simply use PDF download as a supplement to Issuu (or Issuu as a supplement to your PDF downloads) on your website. This way you're not ruling anyone out with your choice of technology, but offer multiple formats with different uses.” -from Issuu Customer Support- http://getsatisfaction.com/issuu/topics/do_issuu_files_break_disability_discrimination_legislation?utm_content=topic_link&utm_medium=email&utm_source=reply_notification
