PowerPoint 2010: Converting Presentations to Movies

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

In previous versions of PowerPoint, converting presentations to movies  could be a bit of a laborious task.   The good news: In PowerPoint 2007, not only did you need to go in to Windows Movie Maker to convert your presentations to movies, but in doing so you lost any transitions or animation effects you may have added.   Related article: PowerPoint 2007: Adding Voiceover Narration to Presentations Converted to Movies. by AJ George.

mLearning: The Time is Now

I Came, I Saw, I Learned

In what may be another boon for mLearning, last week Google released a beta tool called Swiffy , a free Flash to HTML5 converter. I tried Swiffy on some of my Captivate-published SWFs and I'm sorry to report that none of them converted using the Swiffy beta. Until Swiffy will convert Captivate SWFs, it appears that Swiffy will have limited use. Do you have. Fingers crossed!

Learning Circuits Big Question: Avoiding Death by PowerPoint

Kapp Notes

The presentation shows animated examples and how I converted some traditional slides into slides that are much more effective. This month the Learning Circuits Blog Big Question is about PowerPoint. The question: PowerPoint: What is Appropriate? When and Why? I decided to create a demonstration showing good and bad uses of PowerPoint to make a particular point.

Mac Authoring Tools - Help Needed

Tony Karrer

This organization predominantly has Macs and would like to use something like Articulate or Captivate to: "convert our existing Powerpoint trainings, include quizes, track responding, track time spent enaged, insert Quicktime movies and deploy via the web." I was just asked a question and was a bit at a loss for a response. For so long, Adobe has had products on both Mac and PC, I assumed that Captivate had a Mac version - but I didn't find one. Any suggestions

Using A Game to Teach History

Kapp Notes

Also, having a sceptic who eventually converts is a nice touch for the piece. Check out this TeacherTube Video about how a teacher is using Civilization III to teach history. Good stuff. It sure beats a memorization and repetition of facts. I especially like the viewpoint of the kids playing the game and learning history. I've written about similar uses of this game and other commercial games for classroom use in Commercial Games with Educational Value Here are three more games that can be used in the classroom: __ Recommended Games and Gadgets Recommended Books Content Guide

Video formats and storage

Moodle Journal

At the Yasasoft website you can download a limited free version, it will convert just about all format up to five minutes and its a really nice and easy to use piece of desktop software. I also came across a reasonable online media converter the other day at , which seems to be worth having a look at. I received a request recently from a client to produce my Moodle training resources as a set of video files, which does make a lot of sense; I have also been using more video this year on the VLE.


Web2.0 Opt-in Learning MOODLE and Video converters

Corporate eLearning Strategies and Development

Example: Someone asked about converting video to play inside of a MOODLE resource and because of this conversation I now know about and One of the greatest things about the new web, or Web2.0, is the changing opt-in culture of conversations. There are many, MANY topics/conversations that I wish I could focus my time on. I scan many, a smaller number are read and consumed, and an even smaller number do I engage. I have been well aware of MOODLE for many years, excited enough about it to stay up to date but never having a need. Until now. m OPT-ing in.No

Here’s Why PowerPoint 2007 Helps You Build Better E-Learning

Rapid eLearning

That’s why I want to look at PowerPoint 2007 and how it can help you build better courses and save time building them. But before we look at PowerPoint 2007, let’s do a quick review of what’s happening when you build rapid elearning courses with PowerPoint. And that’s why PowerPoint 2007 is going to give you a lot of value. Last week was a blur.

Confused of Brighton

Clive on Learning

With the script now 1/3 complete and with a session agreed at the eLearning Guild's DevLearn 2007 in San Jose in November, my mind is turning to how I can convert this script into a half-decent piece of e-learning to show all those folks who come along to take a look. Two situations recently have got me thinking about e-learning authoring tools. Firstly, I've been doing some more work on the script for The 30-minute masters which, if you remember, aims to teach the essentials of instructional design to subject matter experts in no more than 30 minutes. Have you ?

M is for Media

Clive on Learning

I thought about using special video converters to get to the output formats I wanted, but I was worried about what all this processing would do to the quality. I only got to attend two sessions when I was at DevLearn in San Jose and both happened to be about m-learning. Now I don't have a great passion for mobile devices, probably because - working from home - I spend a lot of time in one place. Of course I love them as gadgets, but it annoys me how fiddly they are to use. If m-learning is ever going to happen, now is the time. So what will be the killer app? This worked fine too.

Birds of a feather

Clive on Learning

This got me thinking, are we just preaching to the converted? Back in early June I posted a criticism of Andrew Keen's anti-Web 2.0 book, The Cult of the Amateur. I received several comments on this posting, all supportive of my position. Recently, someone who goes by the name 'anonymous' posted this comment as a riposte: "The comments on this review underline the basic thesis of the book. Nobody goes to sites that provide them with views that are alternative to their own. herds everybody of the same opinion together. Here' 'Here' indeed. Where?" am I mixing metaphors? does it matter?).

Learning in real time

Clive on Learning

I was eventually converted by my participation in a wonderfully interactive and engaging webinar delivered by someone who's name I have entirely forgotten (my apologies if by some extraordinary chance you are reading this). It took me a while to adjust to the idea of virtual classrooms, what with unreliable connections and then endless online death by PowerPoint. I realised how much fun you could have with this technology and now it is a regular ingredient in the blended online programmes that I am involved with. This has been my experience too.

Even learning is miscellaneous

Clive on Learning

If ever there was a case of preaching to the converted this was it. In my 20s I spent a couple of years working in management accounting for a large multinational. Now I know you think that must have been incredibly boring, but for me it was anything but. In the days when spreadsheets really were sheets of paper, I became an expert at correcting errors using Snopake (maximum two layers before you were writing on top of a gooey white mountain) or with a razor blade (maximum two corrections before you wore a hole in the paper). Maybe that's why accountants always look so depressed.

The power of pictures - part 3

Clive on Learning

Basically, they came up with the questions, I did the answers, we debated a bit, the whole lot was videoed, edited, converted to Flash video, assembled into an FAQ using Articulate Engage and then uploaded to the course website. In the first two parts of this posting I reflected first on the importance of visualisation to memory and then on the effect on both me as presenter and on my audience of the absence of any PowerPoint slides at a networking dinner I spoke at. I am assuming, of course, that the slides really were visual aids and not textual prompts for me. So, that's alright the

We kept upgrading the product, and by 2007 it had become the world’s best PowerPoint-to-Flash converter.

Here Are Your E-learning Tips for 2017

Rapid eLearning

In 2007, when Flash was king, I stated that the e-learning tools would evolve and become easier to use. I couldn’t believe how easy it was to take what I built in PowerPoint and easily convert it to an e-learning course. Some of their customers had PowerPoint slide decks and wanted to convert them into courses. This wasn’t a prediction of Flash’s demise.

One small step for eLearning, a giant leap for the company

eLearning Blender

Ideally, I would like to take a portion of the content of an instructor led course and convert that to eLearning so that I can reduce the amount of days/hours required to complete the class. If I can point to a dollar amount that I saved by converting this material to eLearning I am more likely to turn some heads and get more leeway in the budget. So that's the plan!
