Prezi is a great alternative to traditional PowerPoint Presentations

What is it?
What is it?
Instructors can record lectures and in class demonstrations for student to review at a later time.
Simple user interface that is user friendly for both instructors and students.

Edmodo provides a means for interaction outside of the actual class period. Formative quizzes and polls allow the instructor and students to gauge if the material is truly being understood.
What is it?
The site is very user-friendly for both students and instructors.
The site is easily accessible from a smart-phone.
Best Practices & Tips for Use
Newsfeed for students can ask the instructor or class a question.
Allows students to work in groups and provides an area that only their group members can access.
Students can submit work via site; instructors can add comments through the built in feedback tools.
Students see feedback and grades immediately making communication regarding status in class very timely.This is a great tool for Non-Blended Courses
Remember, Edmodo does not replace the Quad2. Digital classes should still use the Quad2 platform and non-digital classes still need to use the basic functions of Quad2.
Give your classroom presentation a fresh look
Ability to create a free account
User friendly interface with simple instructions
Best Practices & Tips for Use
Upload old PowerPoint Presentations to give them a new, more engaging look.
Create an assignment that requires students to give a presentation using Prezi.
Don't overuse
PresentMe provides users a tool to have " virtual in person" communication.
Best Practices & Tips for Use
A great way to share information that needs further explanation
Instructors can record lab activities with slides that explain the procedures. Students can watch endless times to ensure that they understand the procedure prior to performing it in lab.
Explaining difficult concepts such as acid/base balance would provide the students the ability to focus on the explanation in class and review it as needed on their own time.
The presentations can be shared by email or other social media for students to review as needed.
