Current education focus is on student-centred learning. To motivate student participation and instil meaningful learning require flexible and nonlinearly designed interface. High skill level and advance technological mastery is not an ultimate necessity. Trigger for example, is a wonderful gadget embedded inside Powerpoint® that can assist teachers to transform into a technological expert. Trigger allows object/s to be animated only when a specific object on the Slide Show is clicked, hence triggering the animations. Trigger can transform your instructional material into dynamic, flexible and interactive learning support materials.
