Beyond PowerPoint: Creating a Love for Revision
This paper will look at the various online resources that can be used to encourage and support students in their studies. The foundation year at Loughborough University teaches four modules to students who will progress to the School of Business and Economics: Micro-economics, Macro-economics, Business Finance and Marketing. Other than PowerPoint used in lectures, online resources were created to aid students in their learning such as: mind maps, hot spot graphs, online glossaries and flash cards, as well as multiple choice questions and games. Mind maps, flash cards and multiple choice questions were valued by students. The game had potential and should be better utilised. However, the online glossary and hot spot graphs must be reviewed.
