RealShow 1.0: Bring your PowerPoint Slides into Life

www.alaasadik.net/realshow
MS PowerPoint® is the leading presentation software used in business and education for more than twenty years. It has become the dominant presentation tool in our professional and educational world, usually with the intention of creating audio-visual presentations. The ease of use of PowerPoint® can save time and encourage presenters who otherwise would have used other types of whiteboards or overhead projections, resulting in billions of PowerPoint® files made each year. However, although billions of PowerPoint documents are available and can support learning effectively, they are no substitute for the in-depth information and guidance a presenter should deliver.

Reflections on the meaning of distance education

Designing instruction for distance education (DE) requires understanding the meaning of distance education and its objectives, the stages that distance education passed through, the media and their characteristics, and the main issues in distance education.

In this post, I need my students to investigate the earlier and recent definitions of DE, think and reflect on different definitions, and post their points of view to this post. First, sign-in with your Gmail account.
