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.

The use of compression/decompression software is very practical. This type of software is mainly used to reduce the size of heavy files when you save them or you want to transfer them by email. This capsule explains how to use compression/decompression software.

Marking up and annotating digital documents

Marking-up and annotating digital documents are efficient ways to highlight information which is considered important, and therefore to retain and understand the essence of their content. This greatly contributes to collaborative work. This tutorial will help you to use these techniques in different software such as Adobe Reader, word processing, spreadsheet or presentation software.

Successfully Implementing E-Portfolios

The interest in student-centered and competency-based pedagogical approaches, as well as the availability of development tools has renewed the interest of higher education institutions in digital portfolios, or e-portfolios, as a learning and evaluation instrument. This article examines the trend, and offers recommendations, examples, and resources for successful e-portfolio implementation.

Add compatible objects

It's easy to embed objects such as text, tables, artwork or sounds into a presentation. However, we must always do so while respecting copyright and usage rights. To illustrate this capsule, we use the PowerPoint 2010 version of Microsoft, but the principles of integration of objects are the same from one software to another.

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.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
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.
