muse: n. a source of inspiration

What, no PowerPoint?

Learning in the labI realized tonight that I didn’t use one PowerPoint presentation this week. Amazing – 7 presentations and not one of them PowerPoint. Instead, I used the wiki for presentation support. This may not have been as spiffy and pretty, but it was amazingly customizable and infinitely last-minute-editable. For instance, yesterday before my wiki presentation I thought of something I wanted to add. So, as the session was filling up, I logged into Wikispaces and made my changes. That would have possible with PowerPoint, but it would have been more cumbersome, especially since I was using computers in the rooms – not my own.

  1. Hi Debbie,
    You won’t need a PPT to be tagged!

  2. I also like the way you expertly installed Audacity on a university computer with apparently no security whatsoever. Inspirational…

  3. Oh were you there Esther? I didn’t see you (but I have been following your blog). That was pretty amazing. You couldn’t do that at my school – I was surprised that Wash U. allowed it.

  4. Yup, I was there! Walked in late and sweaty and sat in the back. That seemed to be my pattern…

    Also came (very late) to one of your other tech classes, about social networking, I think. (We walked out together with Carolyn from the JW.)
