Many lecturers use the ‘tried and tested’ Microsoft PowerPoint to create presentations that they use during a lecture, tutorial or workshop to help them deliver the material and to get their points across, which they then make available to their students for revision purposes afterwards. Now, however, there are a vast array of could be called ‘rapid elearning tools’ available that enable lecturers to create, without any specialist or technical skills, more interesting, animated and even interactive, support materials. These types of support materials go beyond the capabilities of PowerPoint and can help lecturers generate student interest in a topic, illustrate points visually thereby helping students paint a clearer picture of that which is under discussion, and make the content more memorable.
This micro-course focuses on a variety of different rapid elearning tools that a lecturer can turn to, to create more dynamic and interactive support materials. When creating any such support materials however, they must be designed first and foremost in a pedagogically sound manner and be cognisant of universal design principles that will make them accessible to all.
