The Teacher Presentation is a built-in activity type that is often used to create interactive lessons that incorporate multimedia elements, to help you engage students while delivering course content. This activity type facilitates the delivery of lessons using a slide-based online presentation.
Teacher Presentations are enhanced with the addition of multimedia elements, such as: audio recordings, video clips, images, shapes, and more. Links to external websites can also be included in the Teacher Presentation slides, as well as links to embedded documents or supplemental worksheets. The Teacher Presentation also includes built-in practice or mastery-style question types that can be used to help reinforce lesson concepts. Teacher Presentations include the following built-in question types: Blank Questions, Fill in the Blank Questions, Matching Questions, Multi-Question Slides, Multiple Choice (Oral and Text), Oral Questions with Sample Answers, and Text Passage Correction Questions.
