Short Abstract Introduction to Credit Management (Online)
The “Introduction to Credit Management” module I intend to present to the conference is a PowerPoint presentation highlighting the syllabus for the Chartered Institute of Credit Management (CICM) exams in this subject. The intention is to show how this can be performed compared with their current method, which involves a simple textbook and 90 minutes with a tutor but very little interaction from either the student or the tutor. The point is to show CICM how easily this task can be performed.
Therefore, to announce my presentation to the conference, I have devised a short animation using Go animate. According to Wikipedia (2015):
Go animate (formerly stylised as Go!Animate until 2013) is a cloud-based platform for making animated business videos. It allows users to develop both narrative videos, in which characters speak with lip-sync and move around, and video presentations, in which a voice-over narrator speaks over images and props, which may also move around.
I found this to be the most effective medium to highlight my participation in the conference.
This presentation examines innovation in e-learning by highlighting what CICM could achieve by using simple, accessible tools to improve their current distance learning educational offering.
Therefore, I will be using a PowerPoint presentation, following this recommendation from Cape Brenton University (2012):
It certainly can keep a lecture organised and it can present visuals and audio well. It is great for short videos or animations, for showing charts or graphs, for presenting an outline of content. It is flexible and content can be easily modified.
As previously mentioned, the main presentation for the conference will use PowerPoint as the primary tool and this will have the following embedded.
Voice over: there will be a voice over for this presentation, as this is beneficial for all students wishing to use this presentation. Also, as this lecture will be recorded, the student can access this content whenever they need to refresh themselves on the topic; or they could download and watch this presentation at any time.
Text: can be used to highlight the important subject matter and to reinforce the ideas being presented.
Animations: these can be used not only to reinforce the idea being portrayed but also to keep the student energised against the monotony of the voice and text.
Quiz: will not only reinforce learning but also break the monotony and keep students interested in the presentation.
Automated slideshow: this is one of the key benefits of using a PowerPoint presentation, as you can upload a whole series of slides and run in time with the narrator.
I am looking forward to presenting this information at the H818 Conference in September 2016, as I can use this conference to showcase innovation in e-learning using CICM’s “Introduction to Credit Management” module as tool to highlight this important area of continual improvement for all credit professionals.
