Lecture Notes

I created this portfolio as part of my study of different authoring tools. But using PowerPoint allowed me to experiment with a tool that I have previously discouraged, primarily because of the earlier problems with hyperlinks breaking when portfolios are pressed to CD, as well as limited space for reflection on the slides. However, using the Notes section as a script for narration, allows the relatively easy addition of voice to portfolios, an element that I think is essential. I think this process could be very useful in a variety of settings, within both educational and life wide applications. Furthermore, with all of the tools available to convert PowerPoint files into other formats increases the flexibility for publishing these portfolios in a variety of tools, from PC-based CDs, DVDs and the WWW to iPods and eventually cell phones. I can hardly wait to see the next technologies and potential formats.
