ET108 The Great Debate: PowerPoint vs. Free-form eLearning Tools
5:15 PM - 6:00 PM Wednesday, March 16
eLearning Tools Stage
There’s nothing like an election year to dive headfirst into a spirited debate, so iSpring friends Joe Ganci and Mark Simon will be doing exactly that. Joe will abandon political correctness to tell Mark exactly why free-form tools are infinitely better than PowerPoint tools, while Mark will campaign for PowerPoint users all over the world. Chances are that you’ve used one tool type or another—or perhaps you’ve used both—but do you really know the pros and cons of each? No matter what your affiliation is, you don’t want to miss this one!
