Welcome

Tessa 0:07 — Perfect, great. So I’m going to go ahead and get started. I see a lot of nice messages in the chat. It’s always really great to see where everyone is coming from. I’m going to go ahead and get started. First of all, welcome everyone happy to see so many of you joining. We’re at the 311th  or 12th mark now. So welcome to today’s webinar on how to convert PowerPoint into an interactive e-learning module. And I’m Tessa, you may know me already, if not, I’m Tessa  Onboarding Specialist at Easygenerator. I’m joined today by two wonderful colleagues that you can see on your screen as well. So, Anna and Jordan who are here to support on this session as well. Just some housekeeping things, the session is being recorded. So, for all of you asking  yes, it is recorded, and it will be sent out to all of you next week. You’re welcome to share it with anyone who may be interested as well. If you have any questions as we go in today’s session, please make use of the Q&A. I know that many of you are using the chat right now to comment where you’re coming from. That is fantastic. Feel free to continue using the chat. If you would like to chat with the other attendees or if you have questions for us  so for myself, Anna and Jordan  then please make use of the Q&A. That is where we are going to answer questions. Bear in mind, it’s quite a lot of you and it’s just the three of us. So, if there are any questions left unanswered, we will try to answer them in the end. And if not, I will let you know where you can ask them afterwards.  

 

That being said, let’s go ahead and get started. In today’s webinar, I’m going to walk you through how to best transform your PowerPoints to e-learning courses. And to do that I’m going to go through a couple of these things. First off, what is the difference between e-learning courses and PowerPoint? I’m going to highlight also what to consider when you’re making that switch from PowerPoint to e-learning. Then I’m going to go into the most important part: What are your options? How can you actually transform those PowerPoints to e-learning courses? And I’m going to demonstrate how to actually get this done in Easygenerator. So really step by step, how to transform the PowerPoint itself to an e-learning course. In the end there will be a little bit of time for me to address some of the questions live. But as I’ve already mentioned, for any of the questions that you have, please make use of the Q&A and they will be answered as we go. And in the end, I’m just going to address a couple of outstanding questions or questions that were relatively popular to answer live.  

Why choose e-learning?

Alright. So first of all, I just would like to address what it means to move online. So I’m zooming out for a second. Probably a lot of you are used to delivering face-to-face, instructor-led trainings or presentations. Now, almost because most of us were, sort of, forced to  perhaps some of you were already busy doing this anyway  we’ve had to move to the online environment. And when you move from face-to-face, instructor-led training or presentation over to the online environment, it can actually mean several different things. The first is that it can mean that you are actually providing a live, virtual training via Teams, via zoom, via WebEx, sort of like what I’m doing now. Another option is that you can record your virtually led training or presentation and send that out to whoever would need it. In a way I’m also doing this. The third option however  or the third popular option  is to turn it into an e-learning course to facilitate asynchronous learning.  

 

What this means is that you, well, you create an e-learning and make it available, you distribute it to everyone who would lead it, and those people can then take it in their own time, in their own space, but most importantly, at their own pace. That is also the main difference between the first two options  the virtual and recorded sessions  versus the e-learning course. The first two are actually still being led by you: the instructor, the trainer, the presenter. In the last option when you create an e-learning course you are the one creating it. But actually the learner is in lead of their own learning. So, because they can take it at their own pace, they’re really going through it perfectly for them. They don’t have to follow the pace that the instructor has. And that’s the main difference here.  

 

Now, of course, I’m not saying that the first two ways are poor ways to deliver training. Of course, I do them as well. But today, I’m really just focusing on asynchronous learning  the creation of e-learning courses. So that is what I’m going to focus on today.  

 

Now, there are many reasons to move from instructor-led trainings to e-learning courses  or from recorded trainings to e-learning courses  and those are the things I’d like to address next. Reasons why you would want to convert your PowerPoints into online training. E-learning courses have a lot of benefits. First benefit: you’re saving time when you create an e-learning course, because you’re creating the course once and it’s available for everyone over an indefinite period of time. That’s actually the defining factor of asynchronous learning. So, you don’t have to worry about offering a training live, over and over again, which is often the case with the live trainings, of course.  

 

But next, you can also maintain your content much quicker. In today’s webinar, there are many of you and all from different industries. But I am almost certain that for each and every one of you, training material needs to be updated, maybe on a yearly basis, maybe on a quarterly basis. For some of you, even on a monthly basis. In any paced environment, there is information, or parts of it, that are going to grow out of date, and therefore will require updates. Well, with e-learning. It’s extremely quick and easy to update your content. You go to the editor, you make the changes, you press a button to update it. On the other hand, with PowerPoint, and with live trainings and recorded trainings, you’re going to have to update it in the PowerPoint, re-offer the training or re-ecord it, and that’s simply just takes a little bit more time.  

 

Now next one, your reach is a lot higher with e-learning courses in comparison to PowerPoint as well, at least in comparison to live PowerPoint trainings. And that is because anyone who has access to an internet connection or any kind of system that the e-learning course is published on, then they have access to learning. With live trainings, you’re always going to have to deal with time zone differences. absenteeism, which is a lot easier to cater to with e-learning courses. But what’s also very important is, with e-learning, you engage every single learner who participates, every single learner who takes the e-learning course, is going to engage with it. With recorded sessions, or even with live sessions  I’m sure you’ve all had this experience  maybe you’re just engaging some of the learners, the same people asking questions. You’ll have some silent people in the back, for example. With e-learning, every single person has to be engaged. And in the same line of reasoning, you’re offering acknowledgement to each and every learner as well. Or at least each and every learner who completes the questions and passes the e-learning course.  

 

Last but not least, you also gather information, results, insights from the learner in a systematic and easy way. When you send over a recorded session, you may not know who’s watched it. And even if you do know who’s watched it, you may not know who’s watched it attentively. You may not know who or if people have actually understood it and will remember it. So those are a couple of reasons to choose e-learning courses over PowerPoint.  

 

Now before moving on, I’m curious to find out from the group  from all of you  what is your main reason to choose e-learning? Hopefully what your reason is in here in the  on the slide. So, feel free to use the chat in this case, to type out either one, two, three, four, five or six to let us know, what is your main reason to choose e-learning courses over PowerPoint. If it’s multiple, also fine. 

  

Tessa 9:23   Let’s see I don’t have my eye on the chat. Jordan, could you perhaps let us know what is perhaps most common coming in? 

  

Jordan 9:30 — Yeah, lots of threes and ones. Those seems to be the two most popular. 

  

Tessa 9:37 — Great. Yeah. Super. Yeah. So even though a lot of you are coming from different industries, it’s interesting to see that actually there are a lot of reasons that are in common and perhaps a lot of you who have multiple of these reasons to consider e-learning courses as well. So that’s interesting to see.  

 

So now I also want to address PowerPoint because of course PowerPoint is also a friend of ours. Probably a lot of you love PowerPoint. I know I do. PowerPoint actually is really suited for instructor-led presentations. Oh, my light has just turned off. Let me turn it back on. Sorry about that. I think I’m still somewhat clear. Yeah, I seem to be somewhat clear still. Yeah, PowerPoint is suited for instructor-led presentation. That’s what I was saying. That is what PowerPoint has been created for. That is what it is most useful for. But PowerPoint is not suited for training and online and remote learner. That is also not what PowerPoint was created for. So, in this case, a common mistake that I’ve come across is that people will send out their PowerPoints to their learners and perceive that as an e-learning course.  

 

But that’s not really an e-learning course, because in fact, you’re still missing most of the benefits that we’ve just discussed e-learning is so great for. So, it’s important to bear in mind what kind of experience you’re giving to your learners. An e-learning course is much more than your PowerPoint content made available online. It’s also about the experience that you offer.  

 

Just as with face-to-face trainings, or virtual live trainings, there is such a thing as a positive experience and a negative experience. I’m sure you’ve all attended a great training and a not so great to training. While with e-learning courses, it’s exactly the same  to make sure that you offer learners a positive experience followed by learning success, hopefully. It’s important to make sure that, in addition to the content, you also embed interactivity in the e-learning course. This can be in the form of different medias, voice overs, questions  very importantly, all of the different types of questions. But also to make sure that, that your e-learning stimulates learner engagement. For example, by explaining the relevance. Adding questions  once again  does this. Asking them for their input. Giving them acknowledgement, as well, in the form of feedback for questions are also at the end of the e-learning. You can even offer them a certificate. That is an option in the system as well.  

 

Lastly, gathering insights. You can gather a lot of results and insights  information  and this can help you further support your learner or further improve the quality of your e-learning courses. So just to recap here, moving to e-learning doesn’t just mean getting your resources to the online environment. It means offering a positive experience leading to high learning success.  

Embed entire slide deck

How to apply these solutions in Easygenerator and keep it interactive

 

So that is what we are moving on to. Now. Hopefully, you’re all able to see my Easygenerator screen right now. And this is where I’m going to demonstrate how each of these options work. So, I’ve created a quick course just for the structure of it. 

 

Embed your entire slide deck in Easygenerator

 

In my course, I have three sections, and in the first section, I’m going to show you the first option: the option of embedding your entire slide deck. To do this, you would need to add a content page; content pages where you can host your PowerPoint. So, drag in a content page into your section. And then release. Click “open,” and at this stage, you’re starting to edit your content page. This is where you would like to have your PowerPoint. So go over to the documents option and drag in a document. 

 

Tessa 18:54 — You’ll notice that a PDF comes in as a placeholder. This is always the case when you add an image or a video as well. Just click on this button up here and upload the PowerPoint that you would like to add to your page. In my case, it is this one. I’m using the same one I used to present today. And as you’ll see it takes a couple of seconds. It’s not uploaded just yet, but it’s going to in a second. 

 

In the meantime, what you can do is add a title. And I just like to show you what this actually looks like for the learner. So, I’m going to click on this “preview” button up here to show you what our page looks like. This probably took around 40 seconds. This is what the learner will see. Up here you see the title of the page. Here you see the title of the PowerPoint file. So just make sure that your file name is somewhat meaningful. And then underneath, the learners get to see each slide one by one. So, they can go through those slides as if it was in PowerPoint, they don’t need to have PowerPoint on their computer, by the way, for this. And they can go through it.  

 

As you can see, the movement of animations don’t come through, but they do come through as a separate slide. If you have voiceovers in your PowerPoint, they will also continue to work. You’ll notice that up here, the learners, they do also have the possibility to download the file that’s here. So, if they’d like to keep it for themselves, the possibility is there. That is how to embed your PowerPoint directly inside your content page.

 

Tips to make it interactive: However, as I mentioned, if you leave it just like this, you’re not really going to reach that high impact, because it’s not really interactive just yet. So, I’ll show you two quick ways to ensure that it becomes interactive. And the first way is by adding a learning objective. Learning Objective is sort of a goal. What do you want the learner  the person taking your training — what do you want them to achieve once they’ve gone through your PowerPoint? What is the end goal? What’s in it for them?  

 

Here, you can add your learning objective. If you have it identified, you’re welcome to just type or copy-paste that. If you’re not sure, you can always use our learning objective maker, by the way. This helps you build an identify learning objective. But for now, I’m going to add one that I had already identified. and that is that my trainer will be able to embed an entire slide deck to create an interactive e-learning course within 30 minutes. This is the objective that I have set up; that I have identified for the learners.  

 

I just would like to click on “preview” to walk you through what the process looks like now for the learners. Now when they start the section, before they even reach the PowerPoint file, they first see that learning objective. So, before they even see that first slide, they know for themselves what the goal is. They’re primed, hopefully this motivates them, and it’s also gives them some direction  what do they need to focus on when they look through the PowerPoint? This ensures that they don’t just go from slide one, two, three  all the way to eight  and just close it. They know what to focus on. And as simple as it sounds, that is already a form of interactivity.  

 

Another great way to add to the interactivity is to use questions. There are 10 question-types in the tool. Using a variety is even more interactive. But using questions at all is extremely important. It’s important to note as well: oftentimes, when you have a PowerPoint, you don’t have questions in there  in most situations. But questions in an e-learning course are really crucial for interactivity, and also, to allow them to self-assess. So, I’m going to add a question. And this is a really great example of interactivity. I’m going to add the single-choice question. I’ll just drag it here underneath the page in which the PowerPoint is located. I’ll open that question up, and then identify my question.  

 

My question is going to be “which of the following options is best when you have the least amount of time available?” I’m then going to add my options. The first is the “copy-paste” option. The second is “import slides as images,” and the last is to “import the entire slide deck.” I see that there’s a typo there. 

 

You can then  or you have to then — identify which answer is actually correct so that the system knows. And then you can also provide feedback for the correct versus incorrect answer. This is going to increase engagement as well. You’re making the process more personalized. So here I’m going to add the feedback that is specific for the learners who’ve answered the question correctly. And here I’m adding feedback specifically for those who haven’t answered it correctly.  

 

Now that I’ve created this question, I would like to walk you through what the experience is like for learners now. Now when they start the section, when they reach the stage of the learning objective, not only do they see the learning objective and are hopefully motivated, given something to focus on and so on, they also get to see that they need to answer a question correctly. So, when they go through the PowerPoint, they’re going to have those two things in mind: the learning objective and the fact that there’s a question coming. So that means they’re going to go through the PowerPoint with a bit more of a goal-driven way. Then they’ll reach the question. If they’re struggling to find the answer, they will go back. And that’s really not a bad thing. They will revisit the PowerPoint, try to understand what the answer is, and hopefully, answered correctly. 

 

Tessa 25:48 — If not, they get feedback. Maybe they even revisit the PowerPoint once more. Once again, that’s not a bad thing. It’s really a great thing, actually. When there are questions, the learner is more likely to go back and revisit the PowerPoint or whatever kind of content preceded it. Which means they don’t just go through the content, close the course and call it a day. They really revisit it until they’ve reached that level of independence  of answering all of the questions correctly. So those are two quick ways to add to the interactivity, adding a learning objective, and adding questions. 

Import slides as images

 

Import your slides as images into Easygenerator

So now, I would like to address the second way of transforming your PowerPoints into e-learning courses. The second way is to import your slides as images. This is an option I’d like to demonstrate. But to do that, I’d like to start from the PowerPoint that I was using earlier. Within PowerPoint, you can save your file. Instead of saving it as a PowerPoint file (as .pptx), you can save your PowerPoint as an image file  .GIF, .JPG, .PNG. Once you click “save,” PowerPoint will ask you which slides you would like to export: all of them or just one. So, click “all.” I’ve done this earlier, that’s why I’m not doing it again. And what this does is it’s going to create a folder for you, and in that folder, you will have an image of each and every one of your slides.  

 

If you have 30 slides, you will have 30 images. And then go to your Easygenerator, drag in a content page, open it up and go over to adding an image. Select this one  the image on its own if you don’t have any text to add underneath or on top — and then you need to select the image of your slide. So click, and click up here to change the image, and upload it from your computer. There are other options, but the most relevant one here is to upload from your computer. You will then need to find it. Here is my folder with the image of all of my slides. So, I’m going to select this one.  

 

Now you may need to tweak it. If not just click “OK.” If it looks fine, as it is. If not, you can also crop. So here for example, what I would like to do is perhaps remove the title and the icon. Sometimes you have slide numbers at the bottom that you may want to remove as well. And then add a title. Now what this looks like — I’ll click on “preview” to show you  what it looks exactly like, your slide right? It is an image of your slide. So, this is what it will look like. What you would do next is of course do this for each and every one of your slides. So go back, drag in a new content page, and for each content page, you’ll add the image of your slide. So for me, in my case, I had eight slides. So, I will have eight content pages, each one with an image of my slide.  

 

Tips to add interactivity: The main benefit, as I mentioned here is that you’re way more flexible with interactivity. So, when you have all of your slides as images on content pages, it makes it easier to add interactivity in between. So, I can now add questions in between my content pages. They will function sort of as checkpoints. You can add multiple questions in between all of your content pages. And you can also change the order of things. All of this is not possible when you add all of your PowerPoint slide deck into one page. So that is the added flexibility that you have with this option.  

 

Besides that, you can also make really great use of the hotspot option. I’ll show you what this hotspot option is in a new content page. I’m going to open this page up, and I’ll show you where you can find the hotspot option. It’s under the interactive options up here. This is a great function to use when you have images. And in our case, we have images of slides. So, I’ll click here and I’ll select an image of one of my slides. I’ll select this one, slide number five. 

 

Now on top of a slide that you have, you can add extra bits of information. So maybe here I would like to explain why PowerPoint is suited for instructor-led presentations. Maybe it was something that I was narrating in the PowerPoint. But in e-learning, of course, I’m not doing that. So, I’m going to add extra information using this hotspot function. You can then do the same for this one up here. I’m going to clarify why PowerPoint is not suited for online and remote learners. Then you can also add a title.  

 

Now I’d like to show you what effect this has for learners and why this is actually interactive. As you can see here, it’s really just the image of the slide. But when learners hover over, they get that extra information. As you can see, here, I’ve added quite a lot of text, you don’t need to add this much. But it allows you to explain different parts of the image, especially when you have slides that are relatively complex. Or perhaps where you have used animations to highlight different areas consecutively. You can use the hotspot function for that in Easygenerator. 

 

In addition to that, for interactivity, you can also consider adding a voiceover. This is something that isn’t necessarily new for you. If you are using PowerPoint relatively often, there is also an option in PowerPoint to add voiceovers, for example, or “narrations” I believe they’re called in PowerPoint. Well, the voiceover here is similar. So the voiceover is essentially a voice recording, that can be added, and it will start automatically when the learner lands on the page. 

 

If you have added narrations in PowerPoint, by the way, you can also just save that narration and upload it here as well. So, if everything is created there, you can sort of just migrate it. So that was the second option. Of course, the option for adding a learning objective also is relevant here. But I’ve already demonstrated it above. So you could also add a learning objective. 

Copy and paste

 

Copy and paste your slides into Easygenerator

 

So now I’m going to move over to the last option, the copy and paste option. For this one here, you do have to have your PowerPoint alongside once again. And all you’d have to do is copy and paste. So, copy the title here, for example. And start recreating it within a content page in Easygenerator. So, drag the content page in, open it up.  

 

Oh, my pacing seems to be quite slow. Just give me a second, I think my internet has blocked a little bit, let me just reopen the page. Thankfully, everything is saved real-time. So even if, if your internet connection or is poor, in some moments, everything is saved. So, it’s going to bring me exactly back to where I was working and my content pages is even still in here. So, if you didn’t notice that when you whenever you make changes at the bottom-right, you do always get that small notification, “all changes have been saved.” So just to let you know, if you didn’t already all changes are saved to real-time.  

 

So here, and yes, I was just copying and pasting the title in here. So, I’m just going to do that again. And then what you would do — going to go back to my PowerPoint  you would need to copy and paste all of these elements as well. For the image, you can just  actually, if you’re the one who’s created the PowerPoint, probably you have the roll versions of these images already as well on your computer. If not, for any reason, what you would do is just save the images and add them into Easygenerator content page.  

 

If you have used multiple images that are layered  for example, mine, I have this backdrop, and this image on top, mainly for aesthetic reasons  but I know that it is popular, for example, to use shapes to highlight different areas of an image on your PowerPoints. For example, to use a circle to highlight a specific area. So, let’s say I wanted to highlight this man here. So, I would like to create a circle around him, or maybe you’re using arrows to highlight different areas or squares to outline different areas. If you have an image where those elements are also important, what you can always do is use the grouping function of PowerPoint. So, select each element, right-click and group them. So, click on this group function here. This means that it now becomes one image. Make sure to now save this image. So here you can just save it. I’m going to save it to my downloads here as “Picture One.”  

 

This is then the image that you can upload into your page. So, I’m going to recreate the page I had in my PowerPoint  I believe it was an image on the left and the text on the right  so I’ll just drag this into my page. And once again, I need to select the image. So, I’m going to click here, “upload from PC,” and I will now select the grouped image that I’ve just created. As you can see, it includes the circle, it includes the background, so I’m really happy with this. This is the collection of images I really wanted to have.  

 

Now, besides that, there was bullet points, you can copy and paste those bullet points as well. Sometimes, you can just change  that’s the benefit, right of copying and pasting — you always have that flexibility to make changes afterwards, as well. And once you’ve created it, you would do that for each and every slide. First of all, I’ll show you what this looks like as an end result.  

 

This is what my page looks like. If there’s anything in the preview, by the way, that you’re noticing looks a little bit strange, you can always go back to the “create” step and make a change. So, for example, here, I am noticing that my image is actually slightly cropped here. So, what I would do is just go back to the “create” step, make the change, check the preview again. In the beginning, it might be a little bit of trial-and-error  that is the best way to learn.  

 

Tips to add interactivity: Now, once again, with this option, if you leave it just like this  of course, after adding all of the slides — you would need to add interactivity to make sure that you’re reaching that high impact. So, to add interactivity, you can do all of the things I’ve mentioned before. Add a learning objective. Add questions. Consider using the hotspot functionality. Consider adding a voice-over. What you can also do inside content pages, is you can use the “show more” option. The “show more” option is one that you can find under the interactive content types. And it’s a useful one for extra bits of information.  

 

So, I’m going to add it to my slide here. What the “show more” option does is it presents the title, the one that’s up here. If the learners choose to click on the title, whatever is in this block below it will drop down. So, what I’ll do here — you can add anything, text images, videos documents — I will add an external link. A link that can be accessed if the learners are interested in having access to extra information. So, I’ll paste my link here. Click “OK.” This function, by the way, automatically generates an image and a description, which you are welcome to edit if you’d like. But this is all automated. I’m just going to remove the extra description there. You can add an extra description, which is very useful if you are sharing multiple links, but I will just stick to one link here. And I’ll show you what this looks like in the preview.  

 

On this page  well, this is the page where there was already content added — underneath there’s the “show more” option. This is where the learners can click if they’re interested. And by clicking, they’re granted access to extra information. In this case, they can click and they’re visiting an external page. As simple as it sounds, clicking is already a form of interactivity. Because here the learners are sort of in control of their learning, as I mentioned. They’re also in control of what kind of extra resources they choose to access, so this is also a great way to engage the learners, much more so than as you can imagine for a recorded training.  

 

So those were the three ways of turning your PowerPoint into e-learning courses. I’ve addressed the three quick workarounds. If you still remember from the beginning of the session. The first way was to completely rethink your training and to start from scratch. That option is definitely still possible. You can always choose to start from scratch if you have that time and you would really like to create a high-quality learning course. These three quick alternatives are also really great quality, but they’re specifically well suited for those moments where you don’t have a lot of time on your hands.  

 

So, all three are great ways to transform your PowerPoint to e-learning courses. Just remember, it’s extremely important to add the elements of interactivity we’ve spoken about in today’s session. Now, that concludes today’s webinar  almost perfectly at the 45-minute.  

Q&A

I saw that there were quite a few questions drippling in that were answered, both by Jordan and Anna as well. Jordan, just want to quickly check with you. Were there any outstanding or popular questions that we should answer live?
 

Jordan 42:20 — Yeah, for sure. Many, many, many people had questions about how the animations work that are of PowerPoints that you import into Easygenerator. And also, many people are asking about how exactly voiceovers work within PowerPoint versus within Easygenerator. So how they need to be added.
 

Tessa 42:39 — Yeah. All right. Great points. Yeah. So, in terms of animations within PowerPoint, the animations that are available within PowerPoint — they’re not available within Easygenerator. So, they’re really different tools and that has to do also with the core function and the differences between the core function of these tools.  

 

If you have animations inside your PowerPoint that are really instrumental for learning, then what I would recommend is to record those particular slides and add it as a video with an Easygenerator. So earlier, I did  oh, this isn’t the right page. Let me just find the correct page here. I believe it’s this one. 

 

So earlier, we did add a lot of images. You can also add videos. So if you have a screen recording of a couple of slides where the animations are really instrumental to the learning, I would recommend recording that and uploading it as a video. And that is sort of the only way that you can keep those animations intact. When you embed your PowerPoints into your page  so this first option  if the learner chooses to download the PowerPoint, then they also have access to the animations. So, if you would like them to view the PowerPoint in PowerPoint itself, you’re also welcome to instruct them to open the PowerPoint up using the PowerPoint tool, and then use the presenter mode there, meaning that they will then see the animations as they were created.  

 

So those are the two options: create a recording and add it as a video or ask them to download the PowerPoint when you use the first option and that way, they have access to the animations.  

 

The second popular question had to do with narrations. When you use narrations within PowerPoint, what that often looks like, by the way  at least that is the manner that I’m most familiar with  adding voiceovers in PowerPoint is often done using this way: insert audio. And then you can record audio for each and every slide. So, what that means, for learners, when they open a PowerPoint and they go to the presenter mode, they have the voiceovers per slide.  

 

If you have voiceovers recorded in this way, and you embed your entire slide deck, the voiceovers will be present in the slide deck that’s embedded. So, if you have a voiceover on slide three, the voiceover will still be there. For the other two options, it won’t, but you can add it. So, if you have a voiceover inside your PowerPoint using this option, it will be somewhere on the screen in this preview. Just right-click it and save it as a media file. It will typically save as an MP3, if I’m not mistaken. And once you have that voice over saved, you can just go  let’s see, I’m just going to open this page  click on “add voiceover” and drag that voice that saved mp3 file into here and then it will be a voiceover inside Easygenerator. And it works in a similar way, as soon as the learners land on this page, the voiceover will start. 

 

I think, I see that all of the questions in the Q&A have also been answered — 60 of them  so that’s fantastic to see. And to close off the session, I would like to say thank you for joining. I hope that this session was helpful for you that you have found new ways to transform your PowerPoints into more interactive e-learning courses. You will receive the recording of today’s session hopefully sometime either tomorrow or next week. So, you can be waiting for that in your in your email.
