General Description

The course is about showing how to create and manage interactive presentations using the Pear Deck Add-On for Google Slides. The Add-On enables teachers to import existing presentations to add interactive questions which are saved and sent to the teacher in real-time and afterwards as published Google Docs called "Takeaways". Rich formative and summative assessment features are built into the free version of Pear Deck which are shown in the course, and the optional Premium version too.
