I pulled my project together yesterday in about four hours – included hammering out content, figuring out the BBP storyboard template, grabbing graphics, and learning how to use PPT beyond the basics that I know. Once you complete the outline, you publish your “headlines” to PPT.

Did you know PowerPoint has a built-in picture and video compression tool? That may do the trick, but sometimes you’ll come across a presentation that stubbornly refuses to yield a decent file size.

Its also a bad idea if you believe (as I do) that learners should be in control as much as possible.
