PowerPoint 2010: Inserting YouTubeVideos

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

In the latest version (2010), uploading videos from the web is easier than ever. Unfortunately I don't think it's quite right yet, as many of the new, fancy video formatting options included with PowerPoint 2010 will not work on embedded YouTube videos. by AJ George.

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

Two of the coolest new tools in PowerPoint 2010 (especially if you like to make your own graphics) are the Shape Union and Shape Subtract tools. If you've been playing around with PowerPoint 2010 but have no idea what I'm talking about, this is by no fault of your own.

by AJ George. Sometimes it would really save time if you could reuse a slide from an existing presentation rather than have to copy and paste all of its elements to a new slide. Here's how to do that.

Acrobat 9: Office 2010 and Acrobat

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

Mankin Microsoft released Office 2010 not long ago and I couldn't wait to see the upgraded suite in action. After playing with the new software for a while, I really liked the way Word 2010 looked and felt. I needed to convert a Word 2010 document into a PDF. I poked around Word 2010, menu by menu but found no hint of an Acrobat Ribbon or its coveted PDFMaker. or later will not see the Acrobat 9 ribbon in Office 2010 applications. by David R.

Troublshooting Tips: Upgrading to Office 2010 for Windows XP Users

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by AJ George A couple weeks ago I upgraded from Microsoft Office 2007 to Microsoft Office 2010--at least I tried to upgrade. It seemed like a routine upgrade process until I tried to open Outlook 2010 and was greeted with a message saying something along the lines of " Please wait while Windows Configures Microsoft Office Single Image 2010." There is an option when installing Office 2010 to customize the upgrade process to only upgrade certain programs.

Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010

Tony Karrer

Before I start with any of my actual predictions, let me throw in an overall prediction that the year is going to start off slow for most people, but by the end of the year, we will all be thinking: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” For example, Harold Jarche tells us 2010: Year of the CM.

eLearning Innovation 2010 – Top 30

Tony Karrer

I had an interesting conversation the other day about whether there’s that much new going on in eLearning here in 2010. That said – I’m still under the impression that my central eLearning Predictions for 2010 is going to come true. At the end of the year, we will be saying: “Wow, 2010 was a crazy year!” But I also thought I’d cheat and use what eLearning Learning is telling me the hotter topics are for the first 3 months of 2010.

2010 Predictions - Big Question

eLearning Cyclops

January's Big Question at the Learning Circuits blog asks for our 2010 predictions. Tablets will be very popular in 2010 and eventually some will add ability to effectively display reader friendly book text. So, here we go; m-Learning continues to grow. I think the growing popularity of social media apps on mobile devices will assist with a growth of social learning (I consider social/informal learning on mobile devices m-learning too).

Moodle in 2010

Learning Visions

Join us at the Learning Solutions Conference & Expo 2010 in Orlando, March 24-26. Back in June, I asked if the corporate Moodle was at a tipping point ? People were on the fence. And then the eLearning Guild published their LMS report in the fall of 2009, with Moodle clearly gaining a foothold in the corporate market. Hear my October 2009 interview with Ellen Wagner , one of the report’s authors). So is Moodle still gaining traction in the corporate market? Surely seems to be.

Looking Back on 2010 with ADDIE

Integrated Learnings

By Shelley A. Gable. Though a variety of models guide our instructional design work, I’d argue that ADDIE functions as the basic backbone of the process. Just about every model, trend, and best practice in the field supports one of the phases of ADDIE. So with this in mind, it seems appropriate to take a look at the articles posted to this blog over the past year and organize them according to how they jive with ADDIE. A = Analysis (analyze the problem/opportunity and its causes).

Informal Learning - 2010

eLearning Cyclops

I think there is little doubt that it will grow further in 2010, but I also expect it to find more of a foothold in corporate training departments where its adoption been a challenge. Informal learning (a.k.a. social learning) grew immensely in 2009. Now I know there are corporate training departments that have embraced informal learning, but those are the more innovative companies.

PowerPoint 2010: Animation Painter

Say you want to add three animation effects to one object on your slide. It works so well for your project that you want to add the exact animation sequence to several more objects on several slides. Heck, maybe you want to add the sequence to every object on every slide.
