Reusing Powerpoint animations in elearning

captivate, elearning

Re-using Powerpoint slides when creating elearning can be a valuable way of saving time and reducing costs, especially when you’re on a deadline. This is especially true if your course requires some animation or motion paths to liven up your content (and which Instructional Designer doesn’t want to do that!). I also think this is a particular handy way of setting common themes for modules within an elearning course. The learner gets used to seeing the animation but is not bored by it as it has changed.

I’ve done a short screen capture explaining how quickly animations and Motion Paths can be changed for reuse.

How to create your own infographics for elearning


Hi, creating your own infographics when creating an e-learning course gives you great creative freedom. You will no longer have to waste time searching through stock catalogues to find a suitable image that fits what your trying to get across.

With all this in mind I’ve created a short You Tube video to share how I created my own infographics using the excellent Libre Office Impress.

Libre Office Impress!

Yes, most Instructional designers will use Microsoft’s PowerPoint. But Libre Office Impress has much of the same functionality and after viewing a few other You Tubes, you don’t have to press as many keys to get the same thing done.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial
