LectureTools is the only presentation tool designed from the ground up to meet the communication needs of instructors in the classroom. The system provides real-time access to information about student activity and comprehension levels. With LectureTools you can monitor the pulse of the classroom and modify your lectures to better reach your students.
LectureTools provides you with the resources to quickly augment your existing PowerPoint® slideshows with interactive questions to engage your students. Getting your lectures ready is as simple as uploading your existing presentations, adding interactive activities, and publishing slides for your students.
Hide specific slides from students and reveal them at the appropriate time during class.
Create an objectives slide for the beginning of your presentation by defining the lecture's goals when importing slides.
Upload .PPT and .PPTX slides into our intuitive interface. Or, import slides from previous classes using Resource Management.
Your presentation remains hidden until you decide to publish it. One click makes the lecture slides available to students.
When class begins, simply click "Start Presentation" and display the Presentation Window on the projection screen. The presentation tool allows you to navigate and annotate slides while students follow along.
The Presentation Dashboard allows you to monitor student comprehension, view or respond to incoming student questions, and preview or display responses to interactive activities.
View what proportion of your students find material confusing on a per-slide basis.
Instructors and TAs can monitor and respond to incoming student questions during or after class.
While students respond to activities, view how many have answered and preview their responses.
