Monday, May 10, 2021
Tools and Development

LS-DX on-demand sessions are recorded videos you can access starting at this date and time, and watch at your own convenience.

PowerPoint is a mainstay of every computer for as long as anyone can remember, yet despite spending decades with this piece of software the advanced elements of PowerPoint often lay dormant, hidden behind the drudgery of boardroom presentations and briefing requirements. However, PowerPoint can be the only tool you need in your arsenal to create a beautiful asset with visuals, hyperlink, and diagrams galore!

In this session learn how to create cohesive and powerful designs in an elearning module, white paper, or workbook. Slidedocs are visual documents developed in presentation software that are intended to be read and referenced instead of projected. You’ll quickly see how slidedocs will empower you to take back the design process and change the way you look at PowerPoint forever.‬‬

In this session, you will learn:

  • The basic components of a slidedoc
  • How slidedocs chunk complex ideas and pair them with visuals, and how a visual system creates unity
  • How to analyze existing slidedocs and begin exploring how to leverage them in your own training programs
  • How to do more with less, using a tool you likely already use daily
  • Why our brains are primed to devour materials in this format

Technology discussed:

Presentation software (ex: PPT, Keynote)

Participant technology requirements:

Laptop or tablet, whichever you are comfortable designing with‚ presentation software: PowerPoint, Keynote, etc.
