I recently browsed through the companion CD-ROM, PowerLecture, that came with the textbook I’m using to teach 100 this summer and found a myriad of resources. From images to ready-made PowerPoint presentations, lecture notes, videos, animated learning modules and more, there’s a wealth of stuff here. There’s also a companion website at http://www.cengage.com where you can register and create your own personal site of resources. I found the text I’m using next fall on there, with PowerPoints, test questions, paper topic ideas, etc.
No need to reinvent the wheel here, folks, we need to be using all of the resources at our disposal. For anyone who has been utilizing these materials, any thoughts on their effectiveness or otherwise?
