    • Abstract:
      The abundance of information that needs to be disseminated to students about events in space exploration and the theories and technology utilized maybe overwhelming to the beginning teacher or lecturer. No matter the age of the learner, one must consider the exposure individuals have had to television, motion pictures, and virtual reality. The need to compete with these stimulating approaches appear to dictate the consideration of use of more sophisticated approaches to the disbursement of information than that provided by the traditional uses of lecture and reading assignments. The utilization of a presentation package with computer and projection system can make it easier and more organized even for the novice. A presentation package, though there are many to consider, all have basic features of interest. The fact that they are organized to be nothing more than electronic slide shows make them attractive by providing a comfort zone to start with based on a familiar use. From the basic design to present text and or visual information there exists an expanded series of features that provide special effects. These effects can range from the manner in which the frame changes to the events that occur as the electronic slide is presented. This article provides an overview of the various major packages used in our classrooms and the features that are available. The relative price, ease of use, and formats are also explored. Finally, the next generation capability is discussed. The article ends with a listing and addresses of companies whose products were discussed. 7 p.
