Print a document

To print a document correctly, for example a document created with a word processor, several functions exist. Here are a few. In this example, we use the Word 2010 version: although the operating procedures may vary slightly from one software to another, they still remain quite similar.

Resource

Protect your computer

From the moment we use a computer, we must think security. Software helps ensure that your computer is well protected against computer viruses or any other type of malware. Some practices also help minimize the risk of your computer malfunctioning. This demonstration will help you to see more clearly.

Resource

Sort data

This video tutorial explains how to create a drop-down list in a spreadsheet, classify data based on pre-established criteria, and then use the sorting of data, whether quantitative (numbers) or qualitative (text). The demonstration uses Excel 2010 from Microsoft.

Resource

Make your presentation dynamic

This pod shows you how to energize your presentation and maximize your audience's attention by incorporating navigation elements into a slide show, hyperlinks to web pages, and transitions effects between slides. Remember that sobriety is appropriate in this type of exercise. This demonstration uses the PowerPoint 2010 version. Although the presentation software differs from one another, most of the skills you develop here can be used with others.

Resource

Set the appearance of slides

When designing a presentation, you must choose a layout that is appropriate to the context of your work. For example, it should be possible, if desirable, to change the color and texture of the slide background. We use here the 2010 version of PowerPoint. Most presentation software offers quite similar possibilities, even though the commands and menus differ from one software to another.

Resource

Follow the principles of visual ergonomics

When creating a presentation, particular attention must be paid to certain principles of visual ergonomics related to the presentation software chosen. Here are some recommendations to make your presentation relevant, structured, and engaging: font, size, color, use of templates and themes, and more. Here we use the PowerPoint version 2010. You may find that the presentation software differs. On the other hand, the ergonomic principles remain the same.

Page layout parameters

Depending on the nature of the document you have to produce, it may be helpful to change the default layout provided by the word processor. This tutorial explains how to change the orientation of a document, create headers and footers, and edit styles. The demo uses the Word 2010 software, but the layout concepts are pretty much the same from one word processor to another.

Resource

Generate footnotes

It is possible to add footnotes to clarify your text or to quote a source. In CEGEP or university, it is mandatory to clearly quote all references. This is a basic principle of intellectual property. This capsule will show you how to add a footnote. To illustrate this example, we use the Word 2010 version. Note that even though the operating procedures may vary slightly from one software to another, they still remain quite similar.

Resource

Add pictures, tables and graphics

To avoid overloading a slide with text, you can easily add objects such as images, tables, or graphics. In this demonstration, we use the 2010 version of PowerPoint. Some presentation software differs somewhat from this version and does not necessarily include an image bank.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Educational Advisor, Cégep du Vieux Montréal
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
