Converting PPT to elearning:

  • What is the definition of elearning to the group?  Basically anything delivered electronically.  The group understood there is a bigger picture, but sometimes all you can get out is click and read.
  • All agreed that most technology will just take the PPT slides and convert into an authoring tool, but that isn’t what really should be done.
  • Need to consider not just converting dense PPT slides, but taking the live interactions and converting them into activities to keep “stickiness.”
  • Some members of the group turn the PPT into an elearning template so that they can determine how to create real elearning.
  • Product to take a look at:  Adapt learning.  It is somewhat like Rise from Articulate, but you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get it.
  • Product to take a look at:  Audacity is a free program that is good for editing sound



  • The majority of the group’s members use either a Word document or a PPT document
  • Work with SME’s to identify what should be happening with each slide
  • Great suggestion to make dry content more interesting – wrap a story around it.
