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.

UPDATE (2/13/2012): Dr. Kim Williams-Guillén reports that her class attendance remains at 90 percent, even with the availability of the recordings.
“Even though I have all the lectures posted on Tegrity I have been averaging above 90% attendance rate for the quarter, so it’s not like all the students abandoned ship once the lectures went online! Partly that is because we actually do a lot of activities and group work in class that Tegrity is (not yet, at least) able to capture,” Williams-Guillén wrote.
Since the Tegrity lecture capture system arrived on campus Winter quarter, Dr. Carol Leppa, Interim Director and Professor of Nursing, Dr. Kim Williams-Guillén, Acting Assistant Professor in Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, and Dr. Robert Turner, Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts and Science, have all made forays into using the technology and all report positive results.
Tegrity is lecture capture software that allows instructors to capture video of themselves, audio of their voice and computer screen activity, such as Web browsing or PowerPoint presentation slides. Lectures (construe this term broadly) can be captured as they take place in front of a room of students or privately in one’s office as a way to create a video lecture for students to view outside of class.*
