PowerPoint 2010: Converting Presentations to Movies

The Logical Blog by IconLogic

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. Using this method will allow you to make a movie from your presentation in which the video will play. by AJ George.

My 5 Favorite Holiday Movies and What I Learned


So, why I have decided to share my favorite seasonal movie list? Chuck Jones’ animated version of the Dr. Seuss book “ How the Grinch Stole Christmas ” premiered on television in 1966 and has since become a holiday family staple. I have to admit, though, a big lesson I take away from this movie comes from George Bailey’s mother: “marry the right person!” The post My 5 Favorite Holiday Movies and What I Learned appeared first on CloudShare. Let’s talk about me.

SCORM: What is it?

Association eLearning

What version of SCORM are you using? DVDs store and play movies. It’s the system that reads the information on the DVD and shows it to the viewer as a movie. But there’s more than one version. If your eLearning tools and LMS use the same version of SCORM you shouldn’t need to think about it. There are two versions, 1.2 Is the LMS SCORM conformant? xAPI might be replacing SCORM in the future. You hear about it in eLearning all the time, but what is it?

Articulate: A Complete 360

You can continue using the desktop version of Storyline 2 and Studio '13, but don't expect any future upgrades to these tools. However, there are some additional features in the 360 version. If you upgrade a project from Storyline 2 to 360, there's no going backward to version 2. This can be a major issue if you share files with other developers or content creators who cannot or will not upgrade from version 2 to 360.

Here the focus is on that very special category ‘ Movie Control ‘ It is special because those variables cannot be inserted for viewing in a course. Since this post is meant for users starting with variables, I want to explain some terms that are important expecially when working with system variables of the Movie Control category. Essentially Captivate will lead to a movie, not to a sequence of slides which is typical for a presentation. Intro.

Attributing Derivative Works in your eLearning Courses


Having read so many Stephen King, Sydney Sheldon, Nora Roberts and many others, I feel a sense of déjà vu when I see a derivative movie based on the novel. Many times, the author of the book on which the movie is based is never mentioned. This tells me that the movie producers had purchased exclusive rights to the “originality” of the idea of the movie. This invariably helps with marketing, especially if the movie is made as a series.
