In this assignment, you are to research one of the nine colleges founded during the Colonial Era and make a presentation utilizing at least 12-slide screencast.

But assume that you are creating professional 12 slide screencast [excluding the Title and References Slides] that would be appropriate to use for a professional conference or for a formal workplace presentation. The entire assignment needs to have at least 14 slides, with 2 out of the 14 slides for Title and Reference Slides.
