Featured this week:
Typically if we ask students to prepare a presentation they will default to PowerPoint, Google Slides, Keynote, or a similar software. Depending on their skills in developing presentations, and their use of communication and design skills, the final product will be engaging and effective - or not. In 'tech speak' students who want to make a presentation successful will incorporate multimedia and hypermedia into these presentations, in addition to applying good design skills to communicate their message.
- Mulitmedia: The integrated use of "multiple media" such as graphics, photos, sound, video, animation, and text.
- Hypermedia: The use of "linked" media, or hypertext, which allows the viewer to get from one information element to another.
In order for our students to make best use of the power of multi- and hypermedia tools, we can expand their repertoire of tools, and skills, so that they may develop even more powerful communication products.
The tools shared in Newsletters #1 and 2# support the development of multi- and hypermedia presentations, and presented here are tools that can be used for bringing these elements together into a polished final product.
