This presentation addresses an issue many online instructors encounter: how to more effectively engage the online student in the instructional material? The presenter will demonstrate strategies for developing animated PowerPoint presentations with audio to accomplish this goal. It outlines strategies for transforming material that can be perceived as mundane into engaging presentations. Free or inexpensive tools for creating animated presentations to enhance online informational and instructional materials will be reviewed. Specific examples will be included for orientation materials, instructional content and student assignments. Participants attending this session will receive instruction on how to create these materials and how to teach students to create them to produce PowerPoint presentations. The intended audience is anyone that seeks to improve student engagement in the learning process, as these resources can be applied in an online, hybrid or traditional classroom environment.
