Tech Tips

PowerPoint 2016 allows you to add animations, audio, and/or video to your presentation. For example, you could add background music to one slide, a sound effect to another, and even record your own narration or commentary. You can then create a video from your presentation. Look for some mini workshops coming soon on these topics. You can contact Linda Lawson for assistance. Please click here for info on how to record a slideshow with narrations and timings.

Canvas Corner

Did You Know... in August a minor update was made to Canvas’ SpeedGrader interface. SpeedGrader allows instructors to view and grade student assignment submissions in one place using a simple point scale or complex rubric. Some document assignments can be marked up for feedback directly within the submission. You can also provide feedback to your students with text or media comments. Please click here to see a video about SpeedGrader, and click here for more information.
