Many organizations conduct webinars to train their employees. The main benefit of webinars is, presentation to wide audience at less cost.
Recently, one of our clients who trains their employees through webinars came up with the requirement that all their live webinars should be converted to on-demand webinars and these should run on iPads.
The tool we have chosen to satisfy this requirement is iSpring. ISpring is a user- friendly tool that allows you to convert PowerPoint presentations to into HTML5 (the format compatible with the iPad). It comes as an add-on to PowerPoint. You can also convert PowerPoint presentations to any video format, which is supported by smart phones and tablets.
We have converted all webinars into HTML5 using this tool. Here is a screenshot that describes the publish settings of iSpring, used for converting Power Point presentations into HTML5. You can easily convert with just a single click.
After successfully converting all the webinars, the client came up with another requirement. He wanted to have an offline version of the webinars, so that the learners can access them on their devices whenever needed. For this requirement, we had converted PowerPoint presentations into videos (.MP4 format) and embedded the videos in the Resources tab of the on-demand version. The learner, by clicking the Resources tab, can download the videos and view them offline.
These are steps we have followed to insert videos into the Resources tab in iSpring.
Step 1: Click “Resources” under iSpring Pro7 tab.
Step 2: Click “Add file attachment” to add the video.
Step 3: Browse for the video file that you wish to add.
Step 4: Check the box “Open in a new browser window” if you wish to open the video in a new window, and then click “OK“.
Step 5: Click “OK” to complete adding the video.
When the learner clicks on the link, the video will be downloaded into their device. Thus, he can also view the webinar offline.
This is how we had satisfied the requirement of the client. I hope you found this blog informative. Have anything to say? Please do share!
