With the present scenario of online teaching mechanisms, to grab the attention of the students will be very difficult with the boring presentations. To make the online class more interesting and interactive, we need to add some extra efforts as a teacher. This webinar covered how to prepare the interesting and interactive presentations with help of PowerPoint and the various tools. By using the animations like morph transitions and motion path animation which help to understand the concepts better and easy for the students.
To make it more interactive the power point has an option called map charts, which is very interactive and accurate of data, which will also help the student for better understanding because they see the things visually. QR Code library was helpful to create the QR code for the URL, mail address, etc. Main important focus was given to the presentation recording which will help the teachers to be well prepared and with help of notes.
With the quote of Malcolm X
“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.”
Let’s all work together for the betterment of the students.
The webinar was informative and useful exercise for the participants
