Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a project from PowerPoint, part of Learning Captivate 6.
One very common scenario out there for eLearning, one that I've lived through, is…to use a PowerPoint presentation to relay information and content.…Of course, you're missing the power of a true eLearning program like Captivate,…but if you have a presentation already, it's a great start.…You can bring it into Captivate. In fact, you can start a brand new project…based on that presentation.…That's exactly what we're going to do right now.…Really doesn't matter what's open on your screen; we're going to start…a brand new project.…We can do that by clicking File, and at the top, move to New Project, and over on…the right, you'll see an option, which is Project From MS PowerPoint.…
Now, when we select this, what you're going to see is a navigation dialog that…will allow you to find the file that you want to use.…Notice that it's allowing us to locate PowerPoint files with the extension PPT,…PowerPoint Shows, PPS, the new format of PTTX, and the new show format of PPSX.…So really, you can use older files, you can use newer ones,…
The course shows how to make a presentation from scratch or with built-in themes, import Photoshop images and PowerPoint slides, and add interest with animation, widgets, and video. It also demonstrates how to prepare for and record a software simulation, synchronize video, add audio, and build quizzes into your project.
