Adobe Presenter Video Express: Synchronizing Voiceover Audio with Slide Builds

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

by Jennie Ruby  Suppose you have hired voiceover talent to record the audio for your Adobe Presenter project. The script is organized by which slide in your PowerPoint presentation each audio segment belongs to. Now, as the pre-recorded audio plays, the slide just sits there, and the animation is never activated. That's where synchronization comes in. In Adobe Presenter, you can synchronize slide animation with the imported audio in just a few mouse clicks.

Key Steps to Preparing Great Synchronous Interactions

These are my live blogged notes from Karen Hyder’s webinar, Key Steps to Preparing Great Synchronous Interactions from the Training Magazine Network. Synchronous time is “premium time&# : if you just want “chalk & talk,&# just record it and let people watch on their own time. Lecture is a bad use of synchronous online learning. Breakout rooms–how does audio work? Audio response–something too long to type in chat.

Tips and Tools for Synchronous e-Learning

Bottom-Line Performance

Higher education started out as all synchronous learning - and as they have branched into web-based solutions they have stuck with the synchronous model in many cases. Higher education folks have put some thought into how adult learning theory relates to synchronous learning tools and techniques. Instructors often play the role of facilitator; in synchronous environments scaffolding and structure is very important for success. SYNCHRONOUS LEARNING TOOLS.

Designing Elearning without Audio

The Learning Dispatch

Here are some ways to construct elearning without audio. Who doesn’t love audio narration in elearning? Yet audio can be difficult, for both the learner and the training program. Learners need to have an environment where they can play the audio through speakers; or find headphones to plug in. In addition, audio can significantly increase production time and cost. So what are the options if you decide to rely on an approach that doesn’t use audio?

The way different types of audio react to an absolute Pause of the timeline, and to a Pausing point (slide related or related to an interactive object) is probably the most difficult to understand. Audio can be played in Captivate in 4 ways: Background audio: is the most insenstive to pausing. The project in the movie has no background audio (find it distracting for most eLearning courses).

by Kevin Siegel      Adding voiceover audio to eLearning enhances the learner experience. And before you spend thousands of dollars hiring voiceover talent to record your audio, you should know: your voice is fine (nobody likes their own voice so trust me on this, yours will do nicely). I've found that the voiceover audio does not have to be highly produced to be effective.   But when should you record your audio?

Online Synchronous Learning Reconsidered

For the longest time I used to resist online synchronous learning. Also, years back, synchronous web conferencing software was not exactly user-friendly (e.g. required complicated user downloads, had balky audio, complicated interfaces, etc.).
