Power Point presentations are a great way to deliver content. Also, adding narrations can create a powerful remote content delivery resource. The problem is that students often struggle with the best way to consume these Voice Over Power Point presentations. They first have to download the file, then open it in their own version of Power Point, and then play the presentation. This process can be time consuming and cumbersome.
An easy way to solve these problems is to publish your Voice Over Power Points to video, upload them to a streaming video service, and then embed them in your course.
