Royalty-free Music for Presentations

 

We are regularly asked to create some type of presentation for class assignments. These can take many forms… Canva, Prezi, MySimpleShow (one of my favorites), PowerPoint (for example). This week, I am creating a PowerPoint regarding the use of dashboards as analysis tools for organizations. 

Why PowerPoint? I’m pretty good at it, and I’ve gotten the animation, timing, and sound capabilities figured out — mostly. I learn more every time I use the software. 

In the past, I have used my own music — often classical — as background music for presentations. This time I wanted something better; something more “corporate”. More polished. More professional. 

I’m always leery of downloading music online (think Limewire if you’re older than 30), but today’s anti-virus software packages are pretty good. Bensound is the first site I visited, and they had — royalty free — exactly what I wanted. In fact, it auto-plays with this post. You’re welcome. Catchy, eh? Now… To finish my presentation…

 

October Term Starts Tomorrow

ACE is where I go to school. Their EdD program was extremely affordable, and they are accredited.  The October term starts tomorrow. This will be a busy term, as I am not only signed up for three classes, but I am also a graduate assistant for a quantitative research methods class. I’m excited about being a GA, and I get to work with the professor who recommended me. It will be a learning opportunity. Not only will I be able to provide guidance to other students, I will also practice skills I am learning as part of the EdD program (Educational Leadership).

What classes am I taking this term?

LEAD 6021: Doctoral Leadership Seminar 1 (1 cred)
LEAD 6143: Strategic Operations Planning & Innovation (3 cred)
RES 6033: Qualitative Research Methods (3 cred)
