303 Create Compelling Presentations for Classroom or Virtual Training

2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Wednesday, April 12

Tracks: Development & Tools

Tedious remote learning, Zoom fatigue, or the classic click-through eLearning are all uninspiring ways to share knowledge. Yet that’s exactly what learners are experiencing. It’s both boring and ineffective. It’s well recognized, but people either cite ‘compliance’ or ‘lack of tools’ to fix it, or try to solve it with ‘fun’ and ‘exciting’ eLearning that just employs gimmicks and flashy content around the dull and boring content, so there’s no improvement in knowledge transfer. What people need to learn is how to create compelling and effective eLearning using tools they already have. And, amazingly, PowerPoint can be the answer.

In this session we will learn how PowerPoint gives you terrific tools to create the kind of dynamic visual content that you need to capture your audience’s attention with functions that allow interactive sequences, navigable content to respond to your audience, and pop quizzes for informal knowledge checks. And then easy ways to share that content with remote learners in your LMS—whether it’s saving as PDF, video, or converting to HTML5. It’s a superb tool for quickly and easily creating effective visual learning content. Come along to this masterclass packed with live demonstration of how to create compelling content for successful training in both a classroom and a virtual environment.

In this session you will learn:

  • How to create dynamic visuals that support persuasive stories to engage your audience
  • Ways to develop professional looking designs for presentations and other content
  • Techniques to build interactive sequences that respond to your audience’s need
  • To become a PowerPoint legend with techniques to make effective presentations quickly and easily
