I have always been a big fan of cross platform integration. Many times I have worked with programs and wished I could blend applications together seamlessly to create projects and lessons. Well, finally there is an integration that just makes sense.
Promethean is now offering what they call an ActivOffice application that will integrate their software, ActiveInspire/ActiveStudio with Microsoft’s PowerPoint. This feature will place a toolbar within PowerPoint that will allow you to access many of the features of the Active software. With this extension in PowerPoint you will be able to incorporate Promethean LRS student devices to assess learning by quickly and easily by adding questions and importing questions for assessment. This software also allows you to display these results within PowerPoint. ActiveOffice will also provide you the ability to annotate on PowerPoint slides and save them for later presentations. ActivOffice will provide instructors the ability to create interactive presentations within PowerPoint.
For more information on this great application take a look at Promethean Planet at the following links.
