Annotated PowerPoint Presentations with a Wacom Tablet and Tegrity

Following up on a previous tutorial, here is another way to enhance PowerPoint Presentation with annotations in conjunction with Tegrity to create a more interactive online course recording for students to view. In this example we use a Wacom Bamboo drawing tablet which lets instructors easily annotate, hand write, and draw in applications such as Photoshop or PowerPoint using a stylus. This is useful for courses that are math-heavy with lots of equations or where natural hand motions present a superior figure to using the mouse such as in an art class.

The video below goes through the basics of using the Wacom Tablet as well as some possible uses for instructors. Before getting started, you will need a Wacom Tablet which is available for checkout in the Learning Tech Studio.

    I think the Wacom tablets are the best that can be found in the market, particularly targeted at graphic designers but certainly with multiple applications, plus the possibility of optical pen is a very useful component but even when used in this type of PowerPoint presentations.
