Professional Development Seminar
This session explores the use of PointeCast Publisher (aka Helius Presenter) software plug-in for PowerPoint to produce narrated presentations that can be accessed by students in an online course platform or regular website.
Participants explore a case study using narrated online presentations to supplement a web-enhanced lecture course.
A brief walk-through of the process of producing such a presentation is included.
UPDATE: Since the production of this seminar, I have begun creating my newer presentations with iSpring Pro and I now use Moodle as my LMS. However, the pedagogical approach and manner of implementation remains essentially the same.
