Playvox knows that every human is unique. Every learner on your team is different. That’s why we offer a multitude of ways to turn the resources you provide into valuable and retentive knowledge. According to Boston University’s Center for Teaching and Learning, slides convey visual concepts, help to summarize main points, and present questions for discussion.
