Promethean ActivOffice Adds New Level Audience Participation to Microsoft Office PowerPoint® Presentations

  (March 16, 2011)

Atlanta, GA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 16, 2011

Promethean, a global education technology company, announces today the release of Promethean ActivOffice, a new innovative software solution that adds a range of interactive features to Microsoft Office PowerPoint®.

The program embeds a unique toolbar within the Microsoft PowerPoint&reg ribbon giving users access to new functionalities, including additional presentation tools as well as the ability to annotate directly on presentations or conduct simple polls or assessments using Promethean Learner Response Systems (ActivExpression, ActiVote and ActivEngage). Using these Promethean ActivOffice features, presenters can reinforce key content, make presentations more memorable, and engage audiences transforming their experience from being passive listeners to engaged participants.

Promethean ActivOffice can be used with or without an ActivBoard. When used with Prometheans next-generation ActivBoard 500 presenters and participants have the option of pen and/or touch capability and can use the right tool for the right task whether it is zooming, rotating, moving or resizing objects using either finger or pen.

An effective learning environment is engaging and productive. With the addition of Promethean ActivOffice, we now have two great software solutions and customers can choose the solution that will work best for them to increase interaction and engagement in any environment, said Paul Berry, Chief Marketing Officer, Promethean.

Promethean ActivOffice is available for Windows® Operating Systems (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7). The program is currently not compatible with MS Office 64x or on Apple® computers. The first release is available in UK and US English only; additional languages will be added based on demand.

Prometheans award-winning software solution ActivInspire Professional has also recently been updated with added functionality to allow users advanced question management. When using ActivInspire Professional on ActivBoard 500, users can zoom, rotate, move or resize using either finger or pen.

Both software solutions are available for download from:
