Videos are fast emerging as one of the highly effective online media to train employees. But developing them takes a lot of time and effort. You may require multimedia developers and software tools to create them. What if I say videos can be developed very easily using just PowerPoint? Finding it hard to believe? But it’s true.
In this blog post, I’ll share 5 simple steps that’ll help you develop engaging, cost-effective videos without any animation experts or software. All you need is PowerPoint.
Let’s see how the magic works.
First, develop the presentation using the default animations and designs present in PowerPoint. Make sure the design suits the video environment.
Go to the Insert tab from the Menu and click the Audio dropdown and select the Audio from File option. This opens a window where the audio file is present. Select the desired audio file and click the Insert button.
Note: Audio will be inserted in the slide, then move the media file out of the slide stage.
Click the Transitions tab and uncheck the On Mouse Click option (if checked already). Now specify the time limit for the current slide.
Repeat Step 3 for all the slides except the final slide.
From the File menu, click the Save As option and select the destination to save your e-learning video.
The last step is to select the format for your presentation. Clicking the Save As type option displays a list of formats in which you can save your presentation. Select Windows Media Video and click Save.
Now you can open your e-learning video from the location where it’s been saved.
Note: Add Slide Transition effect for all the slides in order to get a smooth output.
This one of the most cost-effective ways to develop engaging online learning videos.
Exciting, isn’t it? Try it out and add videos to spice your e-learning courses.
