Options for Student Presentations

November 7, 2005

Are you looking for a way for your ADLN students to make presentations in your class? The ATC has a couple options for you:

Narrated PowerPoint Presentations

Students can add their voice narration to a PowerPoint presentation and submit it to you through myWPI. A student just needs PowerPoint on his or her computer and a microphone that can be plugged into the computer. Local students can borrow microphones from the ATC's equipment inventory. One thing to note is that these presentations tend to have large file sizes, so uploading or downloading them to and from myWPI may take a few minutes. For instructions that both you and your students can use to record narrated PowerPoint presentations, see Recorded Narration in PowerPoint.

Interwise iMeeting

Interwise iMeeting is a new web conferencing tool that the ATC is currently piloting and will be rolling out to the entire campus in January 2006. iMeeting allows students to make live presentations that include a variety of content and shared applications. Multiple students can participate in giving a presentation and others can attend and ask questions. Presentations can be recorded for playback at a later time by students who could not attend the live presentations. In addition to using iMeeting for student presentations, you can also use it for guest speakers and for live class discussions. If you are interested in learning more about Interwise iMeeting, attend one of the scheduled demonstrations in November, December, or January to learn more about it, or email the ATC at atc-ttc@wpi.edu for more information. The scheduled demonstrations are listed in the Teaching with Technology News section of this newsletter.
