Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

Participants will learn how to design their very own Bitmoji Virtual Classroom using PowerPoint.
First we will show participants the bitmoji website and have them add the chrome extension so that they will be able to add their bitmoji to their virtual classroom.
We will then show them how to insert pictures from the Creative Commons through PowerPoint or use have them their own pictures. If they need to remove the background from their pictures, we will show them how to do so using Word.
We will also show them how to insert links, videos, how to records videos, insert shapes, etc. through PowerPoint.
Participants will walk away with a totally designed Bitmoji Virtual Classroom at the end of the session.
