What Is It?

PowerPoint is one of the software options available to UIC instructors and staff to help create engaging eLearning content.


Slides can include text, graphics, audio, video, and other objects that can be placed freely across the slide. Combine these with animations, transitions, and triggers to create an interactive lesson. Content can be exported as a video or shared online using Office 365.
