While teaching online classes to high school students, I often received emails from students frustrated because they created a PowerPoint too large to upload or email to me for grading. Although students were able to access the internet at school, many of the more proactive students wanted to work at home but did not have internet access. So my challenge was to find a resource/tool that would allow students to work offline and be able to share it with me for grading when completed. Because the majority of the students had access to PowerPoint at school and at home, it was decided that it would be a part of the solution. The next problem was to find an effective way to have the students submit the completed presentation. While focusing on this issue, I discovered a number of options, but none as interesting as emaze. This month’s classroom challenge will explore emaze, a free online tool used to build presentation decks or upload pre-existing PowerPoint presentations and share with other users.
