iSpring is the preferred tool when PPTs from classroom training have to be converted to e-learning courses because of features that make the conversion process easy. Apart from this, iSpring works to your advantage when you are looking at the rapid conversion of courses. Let us explore more in this blog.

1. Converting PPTs

As mentioned in our earlier blogs, iSpring is the go-to choice when you want to convert your PPTs for online courses. The iSpring Converter Pro tool converts PPTs to HTML5, Flash, or MP4.

  • It preserves all effects from the original PPT such as transitions, effects, animations, and triggers.
  • The conversion tool is integrated right in the PowerPoint application, making it easy to learn and operate.
  • After a single conversion, the PPT will adapt to the screen size and orientation of any device the learner views it on. This saves the need to create a separate design for each course.
  • The courses are supported on all platforms – Windows PC, Apple Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android or Windows Phone.

2. Adding Audio and Videos

You can add videos to your courses with iSpring Presenter. This will help create video-based learning for your courses. The tool is intuitive and helps developers rapidly create interactive presentations with rich videos.

This will make your presentations more engaging and informative by helping you add external video sources such as Flash movies, YouTube, Vimeo and Web objects. You can even create videos from scratch, using a webcam or the in-built recording tool. There is also a built-in editor to help you synchronize the video with the slides in your course.

Audio can be incorporated by recording your own audio or using options that include a headset microphone, desktop microphone, or a webcam. These can be synchronized with onscreen text or animations.

3. Screencasts

Screens can be captured using the iSpring Cam tool. It can record the screen and audio, mouse click sounds, and cursor highlights. These screencasts can be used as standalone videos, inserted in a course, or can be directly uploaded to YouTube.

Screencasts are useful when you want to teach learners the steps in executing a process, try them without the fear of consequences so that when they actually perform the tasks, the chances of committing errors are greatly reduced.

4. E-learning Interactions

iSpring makes the creation of e-learning interactions easy. iSpring Suite has a set of readymade templates that make it easy to create 3D books, timelines, references, glossaries, catalogs, and FAQs. These interactions can make your course engaging and the tool makes it easy to incorporate them in your course.

5. Interactive Assessments

iSpring also allows you to create interactive assessments using features such as drag and drops, branching assessments, and flexible scoring options. You can even include video and audio in your assessments, using this tool.

6. Make Menu Layouts Exciting

Adults are self-directed and dislike any control on how they navigate the course. They like to have flexibility on how they steer through the course. A menu can help you do this, you can customize the menu to give your learners the liberty to navigate as they wish and provide them a pleasant learning experience.

For instance, if you want to introduce the organization before starting the course, you can add information about the company; topic and contents on a sidebar in the opening page of your course so that it can be accessed by learners or be visible with a click.
