Interactive Classroom

The summer conference season is fast approaching and many of us will need to present large volumes of information to a live audience.  Please take 5 minutes to review this FREE resource from Microsoft.

The Microsoft Interactive Classroom

Bullet Points:
  • Conference attendees (or your students) will have instant access to your PowerPoint slides.
  • As the presenter advances the slides, the audience pages advance automatically.
  • As the presenter makes notes, they appear automatically on the audience computer.
  • instant polling and quizzing
  • When the session is over, each audience member leaves with a copy of the presentation, with notes and quizzes intact, on their own hard drive for offline review at a later time.
