On the plus side if you have it, it will work with both 32 bit and PPT 2013 and 64 bit and PPT 2013. You can still add transitions and everything else that exists in PPT while creating your mix. Under getting started, it says templates – but that is a misnomer, because it doesn’t come with templates.

Templates including ones for layout, quizzes. Transitions, Animations, Views – I am fine using it once, but again, new product-new version, so why I am still seeing PowerPoint within this product to such a point, that TAV are exactly the same as in PPT?

The customizable home page is a nice plus, but none of the vendors have the “Theme” option”, which to me, is the key, and allows the end-user to have a different and personal theme if you will (the system has pre-set templates with colors, hence theme). Where do you start?

Templates – growing at quick clip. PowerPoint – Ability to integrate or use PPT in your courses. Some vendors push heavily on PPT, implying that a great WBT is really a PPT converted to Flash. More vendors seem interested in PPT, then having this as a spec in their product. The data is in, the results are interesting and the competition is growing. What does it all mean?

Certification templates. Cannot move slides in the arrange mode – i.e. once you upload the PPT with the slide order, you cannot move say slide #9 to spot #4, rather you have to do this in PPT and then re-upload. Create a certificate (three templates are available). One item that I found very cool with Mindflash is the ability to share the course via Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook and e-mail. I have been following Mindflash since it started as a beta.

Use LinkedIn? Here is what will happen if people used the power of their authoring tool (sans Studio, which is really a PPT converter). Templates rule! I am not a fan of templates.

I’m a huge fan of history.
