Student, Teacher, and Notetaker Viewpoints

Teacher Viewpoint.....

During the presentation..
  • My Students can view the same slide on their laptop, tablet, phone or pc as I have on the data projector. As I move forward on the big screen they can move forward and backwards on their little screens.
  • The Students can record their notes against each slide.
  • I can see the main points I need to nuance listed against each slide, I wrote a few weeks ago (or last vacation).
  • I am increasing the level of inclusivity in my class. I am making less of a fuss about those who need extra support by not singling them out when providing printed slide copies.
  • I do not have to find out who needs a printed copy everyone can have an electonic version.
  • I can see the current slide, and page forward to see what is coming, without effecting the presentation.
  • If the main data project stops working we can still huddle around a few laptops and my lesson will take place with the slides as plan.
  • If I want to I can share my notes about each slide with my class.
  • I don't have to save a separate version of the presentation to share with my students without my slide notes. I just don't tick the box to share.
  • If I don't finish the whole presentation we can continue from the same point next time.
  • Because I can present a different instance of the presentation for different classes in different modules they can be at different points in same presentation. Each instance can be renamed to include a session indicator.
  • In a joint presentation we can jointly control the flow of the presentation, viewing the slide notes as a reminder of who speaks when, and what happens next.
  • I can use my presentation mouse in Presentation Screen mode to go back and forward through the slides, as though pressing the left and right keys on the key board
  • I can walk around the classroom/lecture theatre with my phone or tablet checking my notes for the current and other slides. I can control the presentation as I walk around the room. I can be on the other side of the world and still control the presentation progression.
Preparing the slides for a presentation
  • I am not doing anything extra than I would normally do?.... may be thinking about the flow a bit more and the animations for inclusivity.
  • No time waiting at the photocopier for slide printouts. I spend the photcopier logging on time uploading the slides to Notes Sui......and sometimes that may be in the classroom.
  • I could happliy cope with printing two copies of my handout slides and distributing at the begining of a session, but then it was five and not every lesson. Now I only need to be told about and remember to print out for the very few who cannot work on a tablet.
  • The last minute amendments can be made and are in slides for all to see....
  • The three set formats widens the choice of color formatting for my students with minimal effort. I can still create an extra format if the standard three are not appropriate.
  • I copy the link to the presentation and add it to my VLE as an URL link object or the just the link to Notes Sui for the student to log into.
  • Preparation for visting staff and students is minimal as they need only the Notes Sui URL and the Presentation Key ID to join the session.
After the classroom session.
  • The students have an electronic or printed copy of the slides with their notes alongside them. They can if I want them to have my notes as well.
  • I can add the Panopto recording, for those who were unable to attend or for those who want to refine their notes.
  • I can start a new instance of the same presentation with a different group, the presentation can be used again.
  • If I do not completed the slide show for a group I don't have to upload a sepate partial slide show for that group.
  • I can edit the presentation record and decide to allow access upto the last slide.

Student Viewpoint.....

During the presentation..
  • I view the same slide on mylaptop, tablet, phone or pc as the Teacher has on the data projector. As they move forward on the big screen I can move forward and backwards on my little screen.
  • I can record my notes against each slide.
  • If provided I can see the main points the Teacher intended for my to understand during the session, against each slide.
  • I can choose which color format suits my eye sight. We don't see other students receiving special treatment with slide handouts. We are treated all the same.
  • We can see the Teacher looking ahead but it does not effect the presentation.
  • I have not had it happen but I can see that if main data project stops working we could all huddle around a few laptops and the lesson would take place with the slides as plan and not be postpone.
  • It's pretty good to share the Teachers notes about each slide. It invites questions.
  • We don't have to wait for a separate version of the presentation without the Teacher's slide notes. They decide to share or not.
  • If the Teacher does not finish the whole presentation they can continue from the same point next time. Each group of students can be at different points in the same presentation.
  • As a group of Students we can make a joint presentation. One of us acts as the lead and the rest of use use the Script Mode display to remember who is meant to say what when and where, an electronic version of our cribe notes.
  • Its fun walking around the classroom checking the slide notes slides and being control of the presentation.
Preparing the slides for a presentation
  • You still need to plan and prepare the slides as normal. After uploading our first set of slides you can practise together or apart. You are able to modify the slide text, and amend the text so it flows, almost like a Teleprompt.
  • We would like to provide hard copies but the time and expence of providing printed copies for the whole group was always expensive, these electronic slides cost nothing.
  • We only need the Presentation Key ID to join the session.
After the classroom session.
  • We have the electronic version of the slides and our notes alongside them. If teachers want us to we get their notes as well.
  • If there is a Panopto recording it can be added to the presentation and shared with those who were unable to attend or I can use it for when I want to refine my notes.
  • I know were my notes are, no scrappy pieces of paper to find.
  • I can print out my notes slide by slide, or save it as a PDF file and store the information elsewhere.
