For years, companies held seminars and conferences to train staff and customers on their products. These learning sessions were popular and effective. However, with the advent of the digital age, many organizations have begun using webinars to deliver their learning content. According to a study by the Content Marketing Institute, more than 60% of companies use webinars for marketing purposes.
One of the biggest advantages of using webinars is that their content can be delivered on demand. You can record a live webinar, and then, convert the recording into an online learning resource. This feature allows learners to access the content of the webinar seamlessly anytime, anywhere, on any device.
Converting a Live Webinar into an On-demand Digital Learning Resource
Choosing the right tool is the first step. There are dozens of tools in the market that can be used to transform content of a live webinar into an on-demand online learning material, out of which Adobe Presenter is inarguably the best because of the following reasons.
- Easy to Use: Adobe Presenter is a power-packed PowerPoint add-in. A person who is familiar with PowerPoint can use this tool easily.
- Editable Audio: It is possible to import audio files of the recorded webinar into Adobe Presenter, edit them to remove disturbances or errors and synchronize them with the content on the slides.
