Powtoon EDU Subscriptions Available for KUMC Faculty

As mentioned in one of our previous blog posts, a few members of the TLT staff recently attended the 15th Annual Summer Institute on Distance Learning and Instructional Technology (SIDLIT) at Johnson County Community College. One of the great aspects of the conference was the opportunity to learn more about some of the great products that are available to enhance teaching and learning.

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 tlt@kumc.edu 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!
