How to Get Content to Students: Voice-Over PowerPoint

Voice-Over PowerPoint (VOPPT) is a PowerPoint presentation with recorded narration, which enables lecture-type delivery of content.

Please note two important best practices for VOPPT:

1) Record your presentations in 15-minute sections.

2) Give students something to think about in between recorded sections: a question to answer (even mentally), an activity to complete, a prediction to develop about the next section.

These two practices will help make your online presentation more mentally engaging (i.e., students will remember more) and less mentally taxing (i.e., students will not struggle to concentrate during an uninterrupted 45-minute video presentation).
