    BASIL PAUL Ochieng United Arab Emirates This is a very important software and tools for teachers of all levels of education. It saves times and brings in a variety of materials in the classroom environment. Even though many students in this course do not have the whiteboard to use to follow during this presentation, it is still useful in that it has transferable skills. 2015-01-20 10:01:19
