If you are wanting to create more interactive learning resources, or improve your teaching content, here are some more that may be of interest!
Mark Robinson, one of the brilliant university Frontrunners, has been working with us and he is sharing some ideas to help add interactivity to your learning materials.
Want to make your online lectures more engaging? Panopto gives the ability to pause a video and present the student with a quiz they’ll need to pass to progress to the next part of the video. There are several types of questions and options for how you would like learners to interact with the quiz.
Want to point out a specific part of an object but can’t find an image that will show the correct angle? In the desktop versions of Office 365 software, you can import a 3D model and rotate it around to find the angle you want.
Maybe you want to show a model of something to a class to explain specific parts much, such as showing parts of the heart in detail to medical students. 3D viewer is an application included in Windows 10 and later that lets you show a range of 3D models you can download for free.
Paint 3D is the successor to the old Microsoft Paint and is a free, easy to use image creation and manipulation tool. You can use this for simple image editing to create useful diagrams or more engaging images for students. It also has a range of 3D features where you can create small 3D scenes which you could show in the 3D viewer. This is included in Windows 10 or later for free. Watch this video by Skills Factory
