What is Sway?

 

Sway is a program included in Office 365, just login into your Office 365 account! Sway is a new presentation program brought to us by Microsoft.

You can create a website in a presentation format using images, text, and other media. It’s very user-friendly! Much easier to use than most people would find PowerPoint is to use

You can embed these into a website and upload them to YouTube as well.

A great beginners tutorial has already been created by Teacher’s Tech.

Remove QuickTime From Your Systems!

In case you haven’t heard, Apple is discontinuing QuickTime Updates for Windows.  There are currently known security flaws in it, so you should uninstall QuickTime from your Windows computers.   HOWEVER, if you are running Adobe Creative Cloud, you may need to keep it on your computer a little while longer because it will break some features in Creative Cloud.  Hopefully, Adobe will quickly address that issue.

HTML 5 should be all that you need for watching online videos.  If you are watching DVD’s Windows Media Player should be just fine for your needs.
