Online Teaching Fundamentals: Making Online PowerPoint Content Engaging: Interactivity and Instruction
Ever heard the term “page turner,” as applied to certain types of electronic learning content?

You should avoid creating page-turner content because it tends to be boring, oh-so passive, and too often a poor vehicle for learning. Instruction, whether in a classroom or online, should engage students in doing something. (Not just anything—something that helps students think through and apply the content they are learning about.)
