A Thanksgiving Letter to PowerPoint from an E-learning Developer

Jack is an e-learning developer who works for a reputed technology-enabled learning solutions provider. He has been using PowerPoint to create online courses since 2010. This Thanksgiving, Jack decided to convey his admiration and gratitude to the software application. Let’s see what he says.

My Dear PowerPoint,

For the last 6 years, you have been of great help to me in developing good online courses quickly, with minimum effort. There is no better occasion than Thanksgiving Day to appreciate your invaluable assistance. You are endowed with amazing capabilities which go a long way in improving e-learning development efficiencies.

Simple interface which reduces the learning curve considerably

You have an interface that is user-friendly and highly intuitive. It took me just four hours to fully acquaint myself with the interface. It was as simple as that. No wonder developers of rapid authoring tools such as Articulate Storyline have come up with interfaces that resemble yours. I join other members of the e-learning development fraternity in thanking the wonderful interface this Thanksgiving Day, for making our lives easy.

Good e-learning storyboards can be developed easily

Proper storyboarding is the key to the creation of a successful online course, and you facilitate the development of great storyboards. You enable me to present my ideas visually. I can apply animations, record and export audio narration, incorporate charts, and use icons and shapes. You help me create templates and customize them according to our customers’ needs. You are indeed a boon to an e-learning developer. Big thanks to you this Thanksgiving Day.

Easy to convert courses into videos

Videos are a popular, fast-growing learning medium. In fact, a study conducted by Cisco revealed 75 percent of the world’s mobile data traffic will be video by 2020. You allow me to export e-learning courses as videos in the MP4 format, which can be accessed seamlessly on Smartphones and tablet PCs. I profusely thank you this Thanksgiving Day for facilitating hassle-free, convenient learning.

Seamless integration with PowerPoint add-ins

You are well-known in the world of technology-enabled learning. A number of online course development software vendors have created applications which can be integrated with you easily. I have used quite a few of these PowerPoint add-ins, such as Articulate Studio and iSpring Presenter, and they have helped me develop good online courses quickly, at low costs.

On the occasion of Thanksgiving Day, I cannot but express my gratitude to you for helping me build good online courses rapidly, with little effort.

Always yours,
