Lesson Loader v2
LessonLoader is a free program to help you to plan and deliver your lessons more efficiently.
It works like this:
Plan your lessons more efficiently
A Planning a lesson
Give the lesson a name eg. 10P Elec Circuits Monday period 3
Browse your hard-disc for files and select which ones you want to use.
Files can be your own, or from a CD or the web.
The files can be PowerPoint, Excel, Word, Images, Videos, etc.
In this way you build up a ‘Play-List‘ of the files you want to project in this lesson, in sequence.
You can edit the sequence if you wish.
Build up a play-list . . .
Click on the Save button.
(You can store up to 1000 lessons.)
B Teaching the lesson
In the lesson, just click on the big button, to play the next file in your play-list. eg. on your data-projector. It’s as simple as that.
. . . and then play it in the lesson.
Although originally intended for use with the Physics for You CD-ROM, you can use it in any subject, with any files:
|PowerPoints, Excel, Word, PDF, HTML files|
|URLs of internet links, YouTube etc.|
|Images (.jpg, .gif, .bmp, etc)|
|Videos (.avi, .mov, .mpg, etc).|
It’s entirely free — so give a copy to anyone you like — to other members of the Science Dept, or the Geography Dept, etc.
This v2 has several improvements, including:
1. you can group your lessons into ‘Categories’,
2. you can store URL addresses of web-sites, and
3. you can colour-code your lessons,
and it has improved HelpScreens, etc.
If you have any suggestions for improvements, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
