PowerPoint 2010: Converting Presentations to Movies
I Came, I Saw, I Learned
JANUARY 13, 2011
In previous versions of PowerPoint, converting presentations to movies could be a bit of a laborious task. You won't be clicking your mouse to continue the presentation once it is a movie and you may find that the default transition time goes too fast (or not fast enough) for your liking. 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. by AJ George.

NOVEMBER 29, 2011
From the top left of the Aggregator application window, select Set as Master Movie. By setting the overlay TOC module as the Master Movie, the published Aggregator project will use the Skin (TOC overlay settings included) from the module. by Kevin Siegel. Last week I showed you how to remove the TOC from an Aggregated Captivate course. One reason that people elect to hide the TOC is that the TOC simply takes up too much space on the learner's screen.

What does the 80's movie WarGames tell us about learning games?
FEBRUARY 19, 2012
I recently watched the 1980's movie WarGames with my son. As a dad, I often use movies like that as an opportunity to teach something new to my son. The movie is about a young computer hacker, played by Mathew Broderick , who unwittingly accesses a NORAD supercomputer controlling United States military nuclear weapons during the Cold War. As a child in 1983 I was captivated by the science and drama of the movie. It is the same as the moral of the movie: a global thermonuclear war almost always results in mutually insured destruction. by Jonathan Shoaf.

But the cynical side of me can't help but think that Schwarzenegger, a darling of the movie industry, and a person who never ran from a violent movie may have a slightly different agenda.

An example from the book is movie popcorn. If you say that movie popcorn has 20g of fat, no one will take much notice. But if you say one large serving of movie popcorn has as much fat as bacon and eggs for breakfast, a Big Mac and fries for lunch, and a steak for dinner, all combined, it becomes more concrete for the learner.
