Instructor: Diana Direiter
Course: Adult Development
Description: Having faculty add their voice to their course is a very important part of the instructional context. While narrated PowerPoints are a fairly easy way to do this, adding audio to PowerPoint can often present technical challenges that hold up the process. Access to an efficient program (such as Articulate or iSpring) to compress is necessary as well.
Another strategy could be providing audio within Voicethread. Not only is the recording of audio intuitive, which no additional production required, but students can also add comments to make this more interactive. This example from Diana Direiter in Adult Development shows how helpful it is for an instructor to provide this additional context. Click on the image above to view the video.
