iSpring – The One-Stop Shop to Build Online Courses in PowerPoint
Read why iSpring is the best bet to develop online courses from classroom PowerPoint presentations.
Kevin from the Instructional Design team had to give a presentation on a research report to his team. He didn’t want to bore them with slide after bland slide of statistics; he wanted to ensure they would benefit from his presentation. He hit on the idea of developing an eCourse on the findings. As he didn’t want the course to intrude on his work hours, he researched for tools to develop the course swiftly, while including a couple of scenarios, drop down assessments, and a survey to capture their feedback. Luckily, he hit the mother lode when he came across iSpring.
