Week 3: Jan. 28 – Feb. 3

(Moderators: Sergio Mazzarelli, Geoff Taylor, and Nicolas Gromik)
This week we'll consider the free software available for editing slide shows, and will start work on our own slide show. The goal of this week and next is to become familiar how to add pictures, text, voice-over, and music -- so that you may be able to help your students with such questions as they come up. (If you finish early and want to jump ahead, you also have the option to preview next week's tutorials about vlogging.)
