ECCE OFFERS POWERPOINT
The University of Tennessee at Martin Office of Extended Campus and Continuing Education has partnered with online course provider, Ed2Go, to offer two new non-degree online courses: “Introduction to PowerPoint 2007” and “Guided Reading: Strategies for the Differentiated Classroom.”
“Introduction to PowerPoint 2007” instructor, Kathy Van Pelt, teaches students how to create professional slide presentations.
Participants will become comfortable using PowerPoint 2007’s retooled interface, which is different from previous versions of PowerPoint. They’ll get hands-on experience planning, creating and saving presentations that incorporate audio, special visual effects and animation.
“Guided Reading: Strategies for the Differentiated Classroom” will help teachers prepare their students before a reading project, how to help students negotiate a text with self-assurance and fluency and how to expand their students’ learning with activities that build on core concepts. Marsha Spears is the instructor.
Both courses include a classroom that is open day and night. Students can interact with the instructor and fellow students in Web-based discussion areas where they can ask as many course-related questions as they’d like. A response is usually promised within one business day, and often arrives much sooner.
