An essential ingredient for interactive and engaging elearning is to let the learner explore and collect information that assists in making decisions.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations 

Karen Ford's curator insight, November 4, 2013 12:53 PM

I think "death by PowerPoint" is used so often because so many users have not "taken the pains to make a memorable..." presentation and the concept of creativity might not have even been considered. Not totally sure what the answer is, but I do believe that if more individuals could have their eyes opened to the potential that PowerPoint has, we might be able to get passed the "death" issue. That means we have to get the great ideas to the teachers and  their students... not just telling them, but perhaps showing them...

Un ottimo prodotto per costruire velocemente Milestones Chart dall'aspetto estetico piacevolissimo, anzi, molto bello.

L'occhio vuole la sua parte, diceva qualcuno. E con questo prodotto si può fare un'ottima figura presentando un piano di progetto al cliente o alla propria direzione aziendale per approvazione.

Al di là dell'aspetto estetico della timeline costruita, il valore aggiunto di questo prodotto è la possibilità di creare con due click del mouse la sequenza delle milestones e delle attività incollandole da una tabella Excel o da un piano di progetto di Microsoft Project (tutte le versioni), evitando di perdere tempo a riformattare il GANTT di MS Project per presentare il piano a clienti e agli stakeholders.

L'add-on di PowerPoint in questione, ci dà anche la possibilità di indicare in modo dinamico la data odierna (Timenow) e di apportare modifiche e commenti per mostrare variazioni rispetto al piano iniziale.

Funziona con le versioni di Powerpoint 2007, 2010 e 2013.

Io l'ho appena acquistata, e nelle prossime settimane la utilizzerò per un progetto che voglio presentare ad un mio cliente a settembre.

Vi terrò aggiornati.
