The lesson continues with another module. This time it was about developing e-book for learning. Obviously, it should be educational as it is specially created to educate children. It also serves as a very interactive and interesting teaching aid for teachers in classroom.

Firstly, from my point of view, e-book is of course an electronic book which is created using any computer software to show a story be it fairytales, folktales, fables and etc. There are various softwares availble and suitable to create an e-book. One can just even use Microsoft Word or Microsoft Powerpoint! These two simplest and easiest softwares are there to be exploited. In simple words, it all depends on one's creativity.

However as requested, we should be developing our very own e-book by only using Microsoft Powerpoint. For me, I personally feel that I will be interesting as we are going to explore beyond what we have done so far with that particular software. Previously, creating slideshows is synonimously associated with Microsoft Powerpoint. But, now we will be go a little beyond by creating simple animation by just using that software. Interesting, isn't it?

Hopefully, I'll be able to have my own e-book soon. It'll be handy later in my teaching.
