Creating Visual Materials
Hands-on workshop focusing on Publisher & Google Slides
For the Computer Beginners
It is drilled into us that many students with disabilities need visuals to be successful. One of the main reasons that the visuals are not used consistently is that they can be difficult to make and personalize. This series of courses are for the computer beginners to gain confidence using various software options to create great visuals for their students. Intermediate level computer users may learn tips and shortcuts to speed up the process.
