I would like to thank @Adamrsc for this useful little resource. It is a PowerPoint with a password protected maco that allows two boxes ( or one) to be pasted on any slide(s). It then allows for data to be typed into the box in slideshow view and when you escape to edit view, the entered data is still there! It is very useful for collecting answers from the class. It works very well on a PC, using any version of Microsoft PowerPoint, (certainly from 2000), but unfortunately it will not work on a MAC.
