What You Will Learn

  • Planning for effec­tive pre­sen­ta­tions
  • Creating inter­ac­tive pre­sen­ta­tions
  • Using mul­ti­me­dia effec­tive­ly and eas­i­ly

Lesson Outline

The fol­low­ing is a list of pos­si­ble top­ics for you to use as a guide. Your course will be ful­ly cus­tomized to your unique goals, work­flow, and learn­ing pace. Because every course we teach is ful­ly cus­tomized to each group, the fol­low­ing list of top­ics to be learned should be con­sid­ered a guide­line, one that will be expand­ed or altered as required to fit your needs.

Planning Presentations

  • Applying Bloom’s Taxonomy to take cours­es beyond tex­tu­al “lec­tur­ing” and learn­er mem­o­riza­tion.
  • Begin at the end – clar­i­fy course objec­tives and design cours­es to cov­er those objec­tives.
  • The impor­tance of cre­at­ing detailed sto­ry­boards.

Creating Presentations

  • Choose and cus­tomize a theme that com­ple­ments the top­ic.
  • Design pre­sen­ta­tions in PowerPoint to opti­mize their effec­tive­ness in Adobe Presenter.
  • Convert pre­sen­ta­tions from PowerPoint eas­i­ly and accu­rate­ly.
  • Import speak­er notes from PowerPoint direct­ly into Adobe Presenter as scripts.
  • Open Articulate Presenter pre­sen­ta­tions in Adobe Presenter, cre­at­ing a copy that can be edit­ed in Adobe Presenter. (Not all Articulate Presenter fea­tures are sup­port­ed)
  • Customize the look and feel of the pre­sen­ta­tion user inter­face to include com­pa­ny brand­ing logos, col­ors, pre­sen­ter biogra­phies, and pho­tos.
  • Create pre­sen­ta­tions for mobile deliv­ery as well as via desk­top, the Web, video shar­ing sites, and Learning Management Systems (LMSs).
  • Attach Web pages, doc­u­ments, PDFs, FlashPaper doc­u­ments, SWF files, and spread­sheets to pre­sen­ta­tions as addi­tion­al resources for the audi­ence.

Multimedia and Testing

  • Enhance pre­sen­ta­tions with audio (voice-over nar­ra­tion, music, or sound effects), video, quizzes, and sur­veys, with­out ever leav­ing PowerPoint.
  • Create branch­ing paths based on correct/incorrect quiz respons­es or options select­ed by the users.
  • Track stu­dent per­for­mance using report­ing based on num­ber of attempts, cor­rect and incor­rect respons­es, etc.
  • Reduce back­ground noise in audio clips.
  • Adjust the tim­ing of PowerPoint ani­ma­tions and audio to syn­chro­nize bet­ter.
  • Crop, trim, pan, zoom, and auto­mat­i­cal­ly adjust the bright­ness and sharp­ness of videos.
  • Dynamically mix slide pre­sen­ta­tions with web­cam video.
