ABOUT OTAN TRAINING: Workshop Descriptions

Workshop title Interactive Quizzing with PowerPoint - Part 1 
Workshop description

Did you know you could use PowerPoint® to create interactive quizzes for students? If not and you would like to learn two methods for creating interactive quizzes using hyperlinks and triggers, then join me for these two online workshops. In the first workshop I will explain the two methods and we will create a PowerPoint using the first method. I will be using MS Office 2010 on a PC to demonstrate, but you can do this with the 2007 version also. If you have an earlier version without the Office Ribbon, you can do the steps but they will be found in totally different locations. The contents of the Part 1 workshop can be completed on a Mac with some modifications, but the Part 2 workshop cannot.

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of PowerPoint 2010® (or 2007). Must have the software and know how to add and select text boxes. You should also know how to move between the Adobe Connect window and the PowerPoint® program if you wish to participate in the hands on portion of the workshop.

Session length 1.5 hrs 
Format Workshops: Synchronous online trainings, or series of trainings, in which facilitator and participants interact by voice or chat.
