One of the products that TLT had the opportunity to see in action was Powtoon (www.powtoon.com), an online tool that allows users to create engaging, animated presentations and videos that can be shared with others. Powtoon is a great option if you are interested in moving beyond traditional voice-over PowerPoint presentations or if you would like to provide a creative way for students to demonstrate their learning. You can view an example of a Powtoon below that gives a brief explanation of the tool.
As a sponsor of the SIDLIT conference, Powtoon generously provided all SIDLIT participants with Powtoon EDU subscriptions for free, and each user was given 150 additional EDU subscriptions to share with their colleagues. As a result, TLT has Powtoon EDU subscriptions available for KUMC faculty, and each subscription also comes with 60 student accounts for you to share with your students!
If you are interested in obtaining one of the Powtoon EDU subscriptions please contact TLT at email@example.com or at (913) 588-7107, and we would be glad to get you started. We are looking forward to seeing the creative ways faculty and students will use this new tool!
