Good Afternoon Online Instructors,

Throughout the quarter I have been sharing various audio and video resources you can quickly and easily add to your online courses, but I haven't yet talked about how using the features within PowerPoint may be a great option for you, particularly if you already have publisher created PowerPoint lectures as part of your course units.

Simply using your headset you can click on the "Slideshow" feature of PowerPoint and then "Record Narration" as you walk your students through the PowerPoint presentation, just as you would if you were presenting to them in a physical classroom.  What a great way to add additional insights, information, and even examples to the prepared slides.  And also what a great way to personalize the "lectures" for your students!

Give this feature a try and let me know what you think!
